A little bit of calm

I can't believe another week has gone by ... where does the time go?


I've been consulting my Little Book of Calm as I'm into my third week of a chest infection (yuck!) and think my rushing and racing around the place isn't helping so today I decided to have some time out aka 'me time'.  

So I took myself off for a swim this morning and then popped into the shops to get some croissants (me time has to include some sort of indulgence) and as fate would have it there was this month's Country Living and Country Homes & Interiors .... perfect!

I got home, slected Madeleine on the ipod, unplugged my phone, put the coffee machine on and warmed up the croissants.  

A few minutes later I was curled up on the sofa ooogling over all the gorgeous pictures and articles dreaming away.

There's a FAB article on summer houses and sheds in Country Living, the images are just ADORABLE, the best I've seen.  I'm not going to share pictures because I've found a few blogs do that recently and I find it so disappointing because I love getting my copy of these magazines and getting lost in them.  

Before you all start thinking "if only" fear not, it barely lasted half an hour as I heard the washing machine finish and knew I had a small slot to get the washing on the line before the rain came, my mobile bleeped three times with text messages and I realised I had to send an email to someone before they left the office so, despite what people often think when they read my blog, I don't spend all day drinking coffee and reading magazines :o)  But I do try to make time for it, even if it is just half an hour. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone xx
