Little luxuries

There are very few things to complain about with my job, infact there probably isn't anything! But, like any job there are deadlines to meet and it is ALWAYS during the busiest times, when I have two or three deadlines looming, when I have no time to do anything else other than focus soley on the job in hand...that inspiration strikes. I have the rumblings of about three books in my head and it's so frustrating not being able to work on them. So, yesterday I had to pop in to the art shop to get some supplies and while I was in town I picked up -

One strawberry tartlette
One copy of Country Living, (the Christmas one!)
One new sketchbook, (like I need another one, but any excuse...)

When I got home, I lit the fire and plopped myself down for an hour, just one tiny hour to pour all my ideas out of my head into my sketchbook and have a quick leaf through the festive pages of CL. Unfortunately, my hour went a little quicker than anticipated and my ideas are still stored on messy shelves in my messy brain.
But, there will be another hour, and deadlines pass....I'm just hoping those big shelves in my head hold out until then!


  1. oooh cosy :) Little treats like that make such a difference. Good luck with your deadlines x

  2. It looks so cosy, i dream of a fire place, there is nothing better than a good book, a cup of tea and a slice of cake by a fire!!
