So it began...

27 August 2015

So thanks for dropping by and taking time to visit my newly formed blog.

I have no concept of what will unfold, only time will tell!

A little about me; I'm 31 years old, and live with my husband in a lovely town called Chichester, which is in West Sussex and about six miles from the coast.

I work for a well loved British retailer as an Personnel Assistant and have been doing this for 2 and a half years. Prior to that I have worked for H&M and Warehouse, since I left 6th form.

Fair to say I love shopping (I mean my career is retail!). But aside from that, I also coven chick lit books. I also have a penchant for anything pretty, pink, cute, basically anything girly! But that said I do like documentaries, history and motor biking adventures (read Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor).

I like to think that I am a down to earth, girl next door sort of person. I try my best to be kind, thoughtful and well mannered and some would say I'm too much of yes person. I would call myself introverted but once I like someone I will happily chat away.

This blog will hopefully be a chart of things I make, places I go, people of interest I see, and things I love. I also hope to share any happy news stories from around the world, as there is too much sadness in the world, I hope to do my bit to make it a bit brighter if that's possible!

Anyway that's a snap shot of me and I hope you come by again!

Until then,

My new writing zone...

So to be able to write a blog, I thought I would need a nice area to be able sit and type away. Being that Dan has taken our spare room for his 'office', now that he works from home, I have taken a corner of our bedroom for my own.

It's next to my bed (great if I end up writing late into the night), which is just a hop, skip and a jump away (though if I did really do that I would end up out the window!). I also have our en-suite to the right of me, great for when nature calls (really, Abbie, TMI!).

To set myself up I have brought, what Argos call a 'Basic Desk'. I suppose for £14.99 you could only expect basic! Dan and myself spent about an hour putting it together (well Dan mainly!) and for the cost I would say it's great value. In time I would like to get a slightly more durable desk, but baby steps. I have also decorated my desk with a few girlie objects. I do love a pretty item. 

I have a white ceramic owl. I went through a phase about a year ago, loving all things owl themed. Which made it very easy for my family to buy for my birthday and for Christmas. I had to politely request no more, as my flat was fast becoming to look like an ornamental owl sanctuary! 

I also have a framed quote reading; 'Live every moment, Laugh every day, Love beyond words', which I though was a lovely quote. This little beauty cost me the grand total of £1.99 from Card Factory!

I was also on the hunt for a cute pen pot for my new desk (gotta be organised!) and after scouring my town centre, I ended in my favourite haunt, Cath Kidston. Inspiration took hold of me (doesn't often happen mind) and picked up a lovely pink and white polka dot mug, that I thought I would fashion as a pen pot. Genius!

I also have a plastic pink flower to add a floral touch. I would go for a real flower but inevitably it would die and ever the practical person I opted for a fake flower. 

My next plan will be to invest in a nice desk chair. Dan has recently brought a really comfy gaming chair for his desk, but that did set him back a cool £100 smackers, so I think I will scope out Staples soon for an alternative to a dining chair!

Anyway that is my little typing den (not sure what I should call it). It is so far serving it's purpose!
