The way I tidy (the wrong way)

IMG_5406

Spoon full of sugar, and all that.

I still have to find the fun and make tidying a game, Mary Poppins knew her stuff..

You know the millions of personality tests, I’m always the type who has messy surrounds and is not only is fine with it, can thrive creatively in it. I’m also the type that the ‘really neat’ type gets infuriated about – I know more of those people.

I had to have a little tidy today though, my bedroom is also a somewhat office and so although everywhere has a place, the place is just everywhere. That really should be my slogan.

I’m very good at treating and rewarding myself, I think it’s something anxiety has taught me. So the way I tidy is I do some of the boring bit, then I do a nice thing. And so on.

Netflix on too, has to be done. Happy Valley. I liked it. Has to be background noise though otherwise I’d just tidy my bed and make a nice cosy circle to watch it from with a cup of tea.

Netflix on, slippers on – put away clean clothes – light a candle – tidy the bags of bits I’m selling…

Find a receipt from Bruge, Belgium, McDonald’s and instantly send a photo to the boyfriend…

Then send him photos of how clear the floor looks…

Then have a cup of coffee…

And decide to clutter up the newly cleared desk and start cutting up some art prints…

Water my beloved plants…

Take photos of a frame I refurbished…

And write a blog post (right now)…

Soooo, I may flit from one thing to the next and get distracted but at least its a little bit better and I don’t have to jump over things just to get out the door.

Till a couple of days time that is.

My quick DIY – free autumn decor

 

IMG_5363After collecting acorn caps yesterday, I had a little crafting session while catching up on some YouTube. I’m sure there was a cup of tea, so lets say there was just to set the scene.

It took me a while to make the ball of acorns but I plan to make more in the future – does this mean I’ll have to collect more?! Damn! Well, if I have to collect more then I’ll have to. It’s not like my favourite thing in the world, or anything.

’90s babies

FH000021

Two years ago I found an unprocessed film in a camera. These are the beautiful 1990’s photos that were printed for our wonderment.

I originally wrote this post two years ago but never published it. After going through the millions of posts I’ve written and left (many, many, are drunk ramblings) this one pulled my heart strings.

I’m guessing they are 19 years old, so I was 7 at the time, and wow, old fashioned or what?! I’m going through a phase of being reminiscent of my childhood – I have a Play Mobil advent calendar for Christmas this year – so it gives me all the right feelings I’m embodying right now.

You know when you look at old photos of your parents and you laugh at them for their big hair and out of fashion clothes? This is the number one reason I still make photo albums, so I can laugh at myself one day, but turns out ‘one day’ isn’t in my 40’s. ‘One day’ is only a few years down the line.

There’s things that are long gone, like my rabbit Milo, unfortunately. Or the house we lived in.

But then there are things that are timeless or making a come back. Like that pout I’m making in the first photo, and I hate to say I did that for a fair few years after – but not now! I’m also sure that was the era of the choker and crop tops.

There are also things my family still own. I have the same bauble on the Christmas tree, bought from my Nan. Speaking of my Nan, she has the same sofa. And I write all my blog posts on that big box that my Dad is proudly working on! That’s a lie, I don’t think that computer could handle anything we do now on the internet. To think I once thought we were so cool for having a modern computer.

The dream is always to look back and laugh.

’90s, hell yeah.

A few bits and bobs on my end of the internet

Happy Monday! 

(We can pretend Monday’s are happy right?)

Today I thought I’d share a few bits that are on or will be going in my shops, From Miles, on either my etsy or ebay accounts.

(etsy has the bits I make, and ebay has my finds)

Go have a stalk if you would like to see what I’ve been up to, we are curious beings after all.
