Thought I’d art it up a little for musical Monday with some poetry from the net
“What Teachers Make,” by Taylor Mali
“Well, Thank You” by Taylor Phillips
“Pretty” by Katie Makkai
“Come Closer” by Anis Mojgani
Mad school day, packed loads in, worked hard when home, watched glee, ate chinese, missed the husband muchly. Deep breath, here are my tunes of the day.
I know I’m so not cool but I love Tinie Tempah’s Pass Out, so here it is!
Now for some Valentine’s Day smoochy tunes
One of my absolute favourites - Faith Hill - The Way You Love Me
I like the sentiment
This one too while we’re on a country theme
And because love isn’t tidy - why not
TLC - I Miss You So Much
Best till last - for D
Love and all that comes with it! xxx
“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”
-St. Augustine (Taken from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin)
I spend most of my time away from home and thus when I eventually get to spend the weekends there the last thing I want to do is tidy or clean. The Man also works away a lot so our house gets babysat by the in-laws who check up on it, ensuring no-one breaks in etc. These last few weeks we have been putting a plan into action, slow baby steps by the Man, methodical cleaning and clearing out but I have yet to get involved, saving that for my holiday (starting next weekend). Although I am itching to start clearing out, a part of me is dreading the effort, yet I know that it’ll be worth it once it is done. We have already procured a gorgeous sofabed and large footstool that turns into a bed! Both are from Sofa Workshop - we chose the Harry in the vogue material in a teal colour. The footstool is in the same material but in a hot pink. Shockingly the man was all for this!
See below for some pictures from the Sofa Workshop site. (Copyright is theirs) The Man has said how great they were to deal with both online and on the phone as we didn’t want the standard material or colours
The sofa bed, ours will be a tad bigger than this!
Slowly but surely we are getting sorted and creative with our living space, fingers crossed we’ll be almost sorted by the end of Spring
How about you? Doing any nesting, have you caught the bug yet? xxx
