A Photo post for today
I wanted a coffee one and this was the only one they did at the time and I like it a lot. It’s like a sweet coffee, so I have to be in the mood for it, but it’s also warming and comforting for an evening. It’s like enjoying a coffee in the evening, which I never do as it would keep me awake.
I’me not sure how long it will last, but I think I cam going to treat myself a new one as one finishes as it is lovely on an evening to sit on my comfy sofa relaxing with a candle giving off a lovely scent. It is also looks lovely on my bookcase
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
I got my sofa last week and I absolutely love it!
Now it’s in I have decided I have enough space to get a nice armchair, or reading chair in the room as well. I think I know the one I want, but I am having a look around now my Internet is connected too!
Sorry for the short post, but I’m on the train and then off out with the girls tonight for a few cheeky drinks
I can’t believe I’ve been a house owner for a whole week!
I feel great, but also completely disorganised, which is stressing me out and making me anxious!
Ice only unpacked the essentials and my second bedroom is just full of stuff. My sofa and bedroom furniture is being delivered tomorrow. I hope once that is in and built I’ll be able to unpack properly and feel better. Plus not so many people will be dropping round to help with things and I will start to relax.
I suppose I just feel out of sorts. Starting a new job and moving house has tired me out so much! I cannot wait until next weekend when I’ll have the whole time to myself and even if I haven’t unpacked everything I am spending the whole weekend doing nothing! I can’t wait
I think it will take me a while to settle in and feel relaxed. I wake up at every sound at the moment, but I’m hoping that will pass in time. I’m back in therapy doing some intensive CBT and I think it’s worked out well timing wise. I can talk about the things that stress me and make me anxious (which is quite a lot right now!) and am working on the tools I can use (rather than food) to cope. It’s hard, but I know in the long term I am doing the right thing to get well.
I am happy I’ve made this decision to get my own sanctuary that is what it is to me, a sanctuary. It is so nice to go home to my own peaceful place
I’ve posted so many products I’ve been loving I wanted to start taking notice of the free things in life I enjoy. It probably looks like I spend all my time shopping, but I don’t, honestly!
So this time of year I love coming home from work and settling in for the evening on the sofa (or in bed) with a scented candle and a good book.
The simple things are the best.
I’ve been appreciating this more recently as I hadn’t realised that my depression has hindered my reading ability. I could read one or two chapters at once and that was it. I used to be able to read for hours without considering stopping – only for food. But the last few months I struggled to read for more than 30 minutes at a time. In the last few weeks I’ve been reading for longer periods – a couple of hours at a time – and I love it. I’m glad this ability is returning as I hadn’t realised I’d missed it so much.
I find it very relaxing and a way of taking care of myself. I don’t put pressure on myself to finish a certain number of chapters, I just read until I feel I want to stop.
I’ve been drinking mint tea most of the evenings of this, but I’m sure I will switch to hot chocolate as winter turns colder.
I also want to create a reading nook in my new house for just this purpose. I am on the lookout for the right reading chair
