It is 7.35am as I begin writing this blog post and I'm sat in the kitchen with a cup of tea watching the snow fall. It's beautiful and it's peaceful and it feels as though I'm the only person in the world that is awake. It's been a bit of a strange week this week but I'm still clinging on to a temporary job that I love so I have that to be thankful for. I bought myself some lovely Kate Spade stationery at the end of last week so if I ever get my own desk, it'll be fully decked out in pinterest-worthy stationery. The telegram note block is my favourite. The pink and gold details are amazing!
I've been reading a lot of children's books lately. Partly because I want to be able to talk to the children about what they're reading at school and partly because I never read any of those books as a child. I went through a lot of Jacqueline Wilson when I was younger but I don't remember reading much of anything else. Since starting this job I've delved into the world of Roald Dahl and David Walliams and sometimes they are enough to make you laugh and cheer you up.
My blog has taken the backbench since I started working full time. The weather doesn't help either. By the time I get home it's almost dark and that kind of lighting is no good for half-decent blog photos. I have loads of ideas about books and makeup products that I want to talk about but I don't get chance to compile it all into a blog post. Hopefully now that it is a little bit lighter in the evenings I'll get chance to put some more work into my blog again.
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far - enjoy the rest of your Sunday! It's still snowing here so I'm going to make myself another cup of tea and finish the rest of my book.
