I worked from home for the first time in ages today and of course I planned to sleep in but woke up at 5:30am.
So, after watching YouTube videos about caring for Fiddle Leaf Figs and Monsteras for about an hour and a half, I decided to order some flowers from an online delivery service I’ve been dying to try, and then I dashed out to walk Miss Gidget and pick up some fresh sourdough.
Back in time to collect the flowers from the foyer (fastest delivery ever), make a coffee and take some quick iPhone snaps, all before work started!
I just love having fresh flowers at home and these ones have a really lovely scent (although the bread smells pretty amazing right now!).
I popped them in my favourite vase after snipping off a little from the stems as instructed (45 degree angle, if you please) and voila, a gorgeous display, reminiscent of a pretty lady off to the races, with a fabulous hat.
It was a bit of a strange day, working from my laptop on my kitchen island, on a counter stool. At one point, my right leg fell completely asleep, and I had access to far too many cups of coffee 😋 but it was nice to be in my own space, and I had a number of conference calls and Skype meetings all day to keep the human interaction happening – not that Gidget isn’t fun of course!!!
