So grateful I get to work from my little sunny garden and listen to the hennies pecking around their run. Sipping tea whilst I contemplate *actually* doing some work. Peace.

My name is Claire and...

...I have a stationery addiction.

These are just a sample from my stash. I also have particular pens I like to use, and I can't write or edit until I have the *right* pen. It's like a form of OCD.

I am also on my 4th diary of the year *cringe*.

So I really needed a new combination of a diary and a note book for on the move. The Dodo pad is great for our office but isn't handbag friendly. I found this:

Had to have it. I now know where I should be, who I should be meeting and I can scribble any inspiration down on the way. Whether or not I shall ever be on time is an entirely different factor.

Another one off the Bucket List...

Running will now be taking a back-seat due to my poor damaged body begging me for a break!

Crochet, French and less impacting sports are on my agenda for the next few months. Finally, I can breathe again!

Lamp revamp!

An old table lamp needed a new shade so I thought I'd renovate it with paper and Mod Podge. I have previously done similar with the children's table and it worked well. 

I used an old Paris map to cover it,.

Really pleased with the outcome. 

*Looks around for other projects to Mod Podge...*

Happy New Year!

A party with friends and then a Champagne supper with the boy to welcome in another exciting year!

Happy New Year to you all!
