Small Things To Make Life Better

New Year Resolution joy continues unabashed.

Wednesdays are the day the house starts to fall into chaos, I'm supposed to finish at the charity shop at one, but rarely leave before two, often much later.  By the time I've nipped to the shops for anything we may need and eaten some lunch it's nearly time to start thinking about the evening. The day just goes.

Yesterday was a particularly busy and frustrating day at the shop so I hardly did anything when I got home. So today is a just keep moving day. On wet, chilly winter days it's easy to not keep moving and to just keep sitting under a quilt drinking tea, so I moved into the dining area. Being in there is great as there's always stuff to do and once I start doing something then I tend to find other things until I reach something that could be classed as momentum. But for breaks (of which there are many) I like to sit and browse but our dining chairs aren't really cut out for leisure.

Not suitable for a tea break even with the unattractive seat pad. The solution to both getting up and doing things AND relaxing was staring me right in the face (and has been for the past nine months or so).

One of the very comfy polyprop chairs we have hanging around. I swear I could do great things if I was only a little more quick on the uptake!

  1. My house is in a permanent state of chaos, not just on a Wesnesday. Love the chair. X

  2. Glad you found a chair that enables you to relax for a bit. The colour alone brightens up any dreary day.

    God bless.

    1. Thanks, I love those chairs, I've had the white one for ages and treated myself to the orange one last year.

  3. Wishing you a Happy New Year.

    I value a good chair esp. at work, where you spend more hours working.

    1. Hapy New Year (sorry, I forgot to add that to my last comment on your blog).

      Comfort and support are so important, I stand all day at the shop, so home needs to be extra cosy!

  4. Funny how the obvious can be staring us right in the face isn't it. I do love the orange splashes of colour you have in your home. xx

    1. You are so right, just like we don't notice mess and clutter after a while we can stop seeing the good things too!

  5. As Bethenny Frankel once said, she was 40 years old before she realized that using parchment paper would save her from having to scrape the crud off the cookie sheet.

  6. Happy new year. Looks like a productive(ish) start to the year.

  7. Love that orange chair and so you. Ha ha - Sometimes my house doesn't even make it to Wednesday before the chaos appears - I know exactly what you mean.
    I am sat here now with Christmas decorations in boxes waiting to go back into the loft and a pile of bits and pieces from Christmas to put back in the right place. I have papers all over as I am doing the paperwork and budget and emptying the files of old 'might need to keep it stuff' to make way for this years 'might need to keep it stuff'.

    1. There are times where chaos comes so we can have calm, the start of the year is certainly one of them.

      I do love orange!
