Monday morning will see our family return back to our pre-summer routine. It will mean that the twins are once again attending at preschool three days a week and I’ll be subsequently working again.
The six-week summer holidays have been fantastic this time around. Last summer was much tougher for me; the twins were still quite little (they were about to turn three), plus we had only just moved to the area and so I didn’t know anyone. I found the long break over the 2015 summer holidays quite difficult. But this year has been really, really good fun. We’ve done so much, enjoyed each other a great deal and it has whizzed by.
However, it will still be good from Monday onwards to get back into working from home once more – and fitting my freelance writing & blogging jobs back into the weekdays. It will be nice not to work like a maniac every night! Plus I am looking forward to fitting exercise and fitness back into my week again after we recently became members of David Lloyd.
On the days that the twins attend preschool I spend a lot of my time working and creating content in my home office, which we made into my working space when we moved into our new-build home twelve months ago. I love being in here; it’s peaceful and it helps with my creativity. During the day a few people amble past the window walking their dogs and then on sunny days the light pours into the room making it feel bright and welcoming.
The room has been painted white and the decor is simple. The desk that my Hubby built for me is ideal, as it means I can spread out all my paperwork & equipment!
The very kind people at My Rug Store have sent me the most gorgeous rug to complete the modern and contemporary decor in here. With Autumn approaching (errrr, how cold has it been getting these last few days?!) this new thick rug has really given it a cosy and luxury feel underfoot, which I am going to need in the Winter.
I’ve gone for a shaggy rug in arctic white which is priced at £199.99.
I have been grabbing my notebook, magazines & books and laying them out onto my new rug to start collating ideas for the months ahead. My head is whirring with information and I can’t wait to get started!
I am feeling so inspired for the next few months – I think it might be something to do with September and new beginnings – and I have some interesting and exciting ventures ahead. Watch this space!
Love, Jess x
