365 Day Challenge: Week Ten

Woah! Where has this week gone? I had my days off separately this week which I hate as it means I can't properly shut down making blog concentration that little bit harder. As a result I'm afraid that my 365 challenge is a little late this week - soz! Better late than never I suppose...

Day Sixty Four: Good Intentions I started the week with every hope of blogging much more than I actually did. I cut out pics for collages and inspiration, I took some snaps for upcoming posts, I came up with a lo-hot of ideas but it all went a bit tits up. My manager is away at the moment and while being in charge certainly has its perks it can be a little draining. Staying late is fine but it does make me a little too pooped to blog at the end of the day. Next week  I will be better, I swears it!

Day Sixty Five: The First Ikea Trip New house = inevitable trip to Ikea. Standard. Can you believe that this was the boyf's first trip to the yellow box of joy? No, me neither. He wasn't as excited by the food as I was but I think he enjoyed himself. Many a relationship has broken down in Ikea but thankfully we came out relatively unscathed. We did see a chav threaten to stab some poor bloke for knocking into her which was fun. Calm down dear, it's only Ikea for goodness sake. We came away with some goodies for the new flat - more to come on these soon. 

Day Sixty Six: Bye Bye Birdie My good pal R vacated the office this week and I will miss her LOADS. We did go out for a goodbye meal after this but I forgot to take any pics so you'll have to be content with this. R's last stint on switch :(

Day Sixty Seven: Super Dooper Dobner I have a little Rory Dobner obsession at the moment and am therefore super excited about his revamped space in Liberty. His illustrations are simple but effective and I just adore these tiles. I want some for my new home but at about £33 a pop I am trying to think of a short word to make. I did want 'kitchen' but that'd work out at about £230. Eek. 

Day Sixty Eight: The Quest For Perfect Hair I got my hair cut this week which has made me start thinking again about the products I use in my hair. My hair is quite dry after years and years of bleaching it. Now that I have gone au naturel with the colour it's still a bit of a frizz ball but is considerably better than it was. I chose a heat protection spray, some sort of serum, and a new hair mask. I use masks instead of conditioner as they work better on my dry ends. 

Day Sixty Nine: Happy Mother's Day Despite my blog tribute on the day I actually forgot to post my mum's card. I know, minus fifty good daughter points. I still have it and will send it at some point (I promise). I never seem to be able to send things on time. I blame the new small/large stamp system. I don't know which stamp I'm supposed to use. Last time I thought I got it right the poor recipient had to pay the extra. Oops. 

Day Seventy: Tin Man Whilst perusing the dining section of Liberty I saw these vintage style tins and thought 'yeah, they'd look good in my kitchen'. They were quite a bargain too actually, I may have to go pick up some more. 

I think I'm going to start planning some blog posts for next week whilst I sip on a glass of rose and watch the rest of Legally Blonde. Classic.
