Weekend at the Smiths…

Tuesday, 13 November 2012

Things have been snowballing lately. Work has been manic so my weekends have been spent ‘recharging’ on the sofa whilst simultaneously ignoring most aspects of my personal life. It started with an ignored email and an ignored trip to the bank, then I shunned some boring DVLA forms, a broken button on my favourite winter coat, a cancelled appointment with my hairdresser, packing away the duffle bag that holds my summer clothes (this has lived in the middle of our bedroom floor for about a month). And before I knew it, I was drowning in the mundane tasks that slowly suck the life out of you (a tad dramatic but you get the point). So this weekend I vowed to take control of my life and finally get stuff done and you know what I did? Nada. Sweet nothing. Zip. Zilch. Zero. It was blissful. I figured the every-growing list could wait another weekend.

  6. Hi Meghan, I immediately felt the feeling of bliss as soon as I clicked on your blog post and saw the first photo. Ah, chocolate and coffee and il dolce far niente. Moments like this is the best way to recharge. :) Beautiful photos.

  7. Sounds like a perfect weekend to us! How we would love to indulge ourselves with a weekend filled with absolutely nothing... We all deserve it, don't we?!

  9. I can so relate, Meghan. It's so easy to procrastinate, and put off those annoying little jobs. I do that sometimes, then a wave of energy washes over me, and I get it all sorted, feeling so much better. It sounds like my perfect kind of w/end though - feet up, wooly socks, pizza and bubbles! :) x

  10. Feeling so like you lately, doing anything and forgetting all the tasks, just leaving everything behind, it's perfect sometimes. xx

  11. I have been in the same boat lately! Though this week I have been trying to make up for some lost time, of course I am starting with all the fun things on my to-do list. Hopefully I will still have some energy left to get the not so fun things done. But if not at least i will still have some things I can cross off. xo

  12. Oh that looks so lovely. I can totally relate with the whole avoiding the bank issue ...... as you know, traveling is great but the reality hurts when looking at statements. Those socks look really cozy and I can smell that pizza from here.
