My life can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. Up at 6.30 (okay...6.45) and out at 7, starting first clients at 9 after a commute filled with school children, chattering and smiling up until lunch when I get an hour (if I'm lucky) to find some nourishment and catch up with the girls. Back to work until 5 when I fall out of work, back onto some more public transport until I finally reach my house at 7pm. Tea, bath, bed, and it all starts again.
If only it was that simple - since deciding to 'Say Yes More at the beginning of the year, my days can be an awful lot busier than that. Drinks, dinners, sleepovers, cheese and wine, bonfires, BBQs... These all mean that, more often than not, I don't end up getting my happy 8 hours a night, and certainly not always in my own bed (not slutting about, you filthy minx, I stay with friends!). It can take it's toll, so when I finally do get back into my own room, it feels so much warmer than anywhere else.
My room is always the one place that can be totally peaceful. Yes, Audrey is always clattering about in her cage, and yes, I am right above the kitchen in my little home so I can always hear the hustle and bustle of family life right below me, but once I'm settled in, some relaxed music on and a candle lit, there's often no place I'd rather be.
Fancy a tour?

Right, after all that I'm going to make a cup of tea and waste 20 hours on tumblr. See ya!
