Desk days

I’ve been channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw these past couple of weeks. I’ve been spending a lot of time at my desk writing, creating, researching, and attempting to look sophisticated as I gaze into nothingness while a witty narration of my day plays in the background. Or so I like to think. 
Having sat here so much recently, there was no better time to give my desk a little nip / tuck. I like mixing things up, and as they say, variety is the spice of life …

A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to this adorbs pennant from the Stay Home Club, which suits hubby and I to a T. Yeah we go out, but for the most part, we are home birds cats and take no shame in preferring to stay in with Netflix, a beverage and cuddles. Too legit to quit. 

I also couldn’t resist this whopper of an amethyst which I picked up this week. Seriously, it has to weigh about 3 lbs. At €13 from TK Maxx, I couldn’t not buy it as it was twice the size of my first piece, and for a the same price.
In reality though, the below is more what my desk looks like today. I counted myself lucky for not contracting husband’s man flu, but last night my allergies were so bad, I sneezed my way to a sore throat and today I’m wading in tissues. If you guys can’t see them, then they don’t exist. Right? 

Before I forget, happy 4th of July to my State side readers! I would have organized something much more relevant to blog about today if I wasn’t so gooey. I hope you enjoy the celebrations wherever you are, and chillax to the max 🙂 xx A

    Stay Home club? I've got to join! Thanks for the Independence Day shout-out. It's rainy here in the ATL, so most of our outdoor activities have been postponed. Hubby is watching the Tour de France, and I'm contemplating an afternoon of Netflix (The Avengers!) and knitting.

      Ugh, your Netflix sounds much better than ours! Here in Ireland we don't got The Avengers to oogle at. Lucky you.

      Come join the club. We don't have a club house so you can stay in the comfort of your own home 🙂

    My teammate commemorated my 6 years playing roller derby with a cute pennant with my derby name & number. It is adorable. Gotta take photos of it one day.

    Hope your allergies are better today.
    Is there anything worse than a man who is sick? You'd think the world was falling apart or something. LOL

      Allergies are much better! And the man flu has disappeared. Thank god.

      Wait hold up.

      Roller. Derby.
