Hello everyone, hoping you are well!

I started work on Monday and it’s been lovely to have a more structured day.  Its also been lovely to be driving again as I haven’t really need the car since lockdown originally started.  The only downside this week has been the weather, snow, ice and thundersnow, which was a first!

I was lucky to get some money for my birthday so I treated myself to some new books including the Home Edit books, I loved the series and it’s giving me some great ideas, I’m hoping the books will help my clutter!

Have a lovely safe week x

  1. Hooray for getting back to work! I agree, it's a good feeling to have more routine and structure. On the flipside, as of next week I'm back to working from home again as COVID cases continue to rise. *sigh* Wow, I've never heard of thundersnow... that sounds wild! The Home Edit books look like they would be fun to flip through and get ideas.

    1. It definitely is, it’s nice to be in company again too! Working from home is difficult, it’s hard to concentrate, you’ve got to be strict with yourself! Home Edit is great !

  2. Congrats on the new job! Even working from home, I try to have some sort of structure to my day, because I could go downhill real fast!

  3. I guess because I imposed so much structure on myself, I don't miss work. I heard my company will be re-evaluating WFH again at the end of the first quarter of 2021, and I am not sad. I do know people who like the separation of home/work, but I like being home. Glad you enjoying it despite the weather.

    1. I’m happy to be doing something! I’m terrible at policing myself so it’s good to have the structure!

  6. Yay for getting back to work and having some structured week. I loved the Home Edit series and the Netflix show. Thundersnow is pretty rare!

  8. We're in another lockdown so not much going on outside the home. I love decluttering.
    I just started reading The Tenant.

    1. I love decluttering but the problem is what’s thrown out is usually replaced!

  12. Ugh, I can't be bothered to organize so let me just get rid of all my stuff. LOL I do like to see how other people organize all their stuff so I will look for the Home Edit Insta!

    Ooooo let us know how Spec Ops Z is as well as the Nightvale books are (I love that podcast!!!).

    Happy Birthday!

  13. I never liked going to work except when I was a singer and when I worked at a bookstore. So it is Sunday, I am here to say hi. Somehow I acquired 8 books this week! And I have 7 on the pile to write up reviews for. Welcome to my structure!

    1. 8 books! I have a habit of acquiring books too! I’d love to work in a bookstore, I’d never get any work done!

  14. Thundersnow! Wow that must have been impressive and scary! Thank you for participating in our Best Reads of 2020 by the way! It means a lot to me!

  15. I'm glad you are enjoying the return to the structure of your work.

    I had to look up thundersnow. I had never heard of it.

    I enjoyed the Home Edit books a lot. One of my favorite takeaways is having rotating Lazy Susan for lots of things, like medical supplies and spices.

    I'm always thrilled to get money, especially money on an Amazon gift card.

    1. I’ve acquired a lots of spices over the last week so I’ve been looking for a lazy Susan, I think they’ll make life so much easier. I love how the Home Edit ladies have the best solutions!

  16. Hey Heather, I'm glad you have had a good return to work and that is has felt nice to be back in your car, but sorry to hear about the weather... well maybe not the snow, as I am a bit jealous of that, but I don't know if I fancy the thundersnow: it sounds scary! 😅

    Take care in the coming week and enjoy those new birthday goodies!😊

    1. The worst part of thundersnow was the waking up with a start, it was crazy loud. I’ve never had it before.

      Yes I’m enjoying being behind the wheel again!

  17. Happy birthday 🥳
    I’m glad the new job is going well, though driving in that weather sounds terrifying! It’s hot here, it’s been 30c+ all week
    I’m yet to watch Home Edit on Netflix, seems like I should

    Wishing you a great reading week

    1. Wow that’s hot, it’s mostly cold here at the minute, thankfully no more snow!

  18. It does sound nice to get back to routine. Thundersnow doesn't sound fun to drive in. The only thing I don't mind about driving back and forth to work is listening to my audio books while doing it. Other than that I'd rather be able to work from home. Oh well, I'm happy I even have a job when others are not so fortunate.

    The Tenant looks interesting.

    1. I listen to the local radio on the way to work but on the way home it’s either a podcast or audiobook, it’s the best time to get peace. I know, I feel so lucky to be back at work, there are still thousands out of work.

  19. I am curious about The Tenant. Enjoy your week and reading

  21. Wow! That's quite the stormfront! I'm glad you've been able to get back to work and that structure again. So hard to not have it.

    I've been wondering about the Mindy Kaling books and you've read most of them, it looks like. I'll have to pick them up. She cracks me up.

    I need to watch Home Edit. My friend has been watching it as well. I need to get my pantry reorganized!

    I'm loving those books you are currently reading. I need a good thriller right now. I hope you have a great week!

    1. I love Mindy, she is brilliant in most things and her books where really good. Even though she is rich and famous she comes across as relatable too.

      I’m looking to properly Home Editing my house, they have so many good ideas!

  22. Hope the job is going well!
    I heard about the thunder snow and can I just rant how jealous I am?! I had so many pictures of snow on my social media and whatsapp from people back home posting and I'm sitting here with no snow... The last time it snowed down where I am now was Feb 19!! I could cry. I love snow! I miss snow. *whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa*

    1. The job is going well Nicci! It’s nice to be working and socialising.

      I love snow too but I hate travelling in snow because my road never gets cleared and the main roads are hell but if I don’t have to go anywhere it can snow snow snow! Thundersnow was crazy, never seen/heard anything like it!

  23. Congratulations on the new job. 🎉

    Did you read the Marie Kondo book? I am wondering if these Home Edit books are better. 🤔

    I hope your weather gets better and that you are having a wonderful week. 🌞

    1. Thanks! I’ve tried Marie Kondo but I just find Home Edit happier and easier, though Marie did revolutionise my sock drawer!

      The week has been good but cold and wet!
