Feels so good at the moment to wake up naturally without an alarm, well as naturally as I can with an old cat but she is nicer than an alarm clock even if she is more persistent and louder!!
After feeding Sophiecat around 6.15am I came back to bed and she woke me up again about an hour later or so, I struggled to wake up for a good 20 minutes.
Today was all about my business and I made a start on some of the work my mentor/coach has set me over the festive break, although I do find this work hard so was constantly distracted by other things!
Eventually, I gave up and decided to hang the new fairy lights I had bought for the guest room AKA my reading room
I rarely have guests to stay but, wanted to keep a bed in the room just in case, but have tried to make it a space where I can sit and read, meditate or journal etc.
This room is my 3rd bedroom and used to be my office until I switched it with the larger 2nd bedroom, I spent nearly 9 years of my life in this room, it’s at the front of the house so gets the early morning sunshine and has cosy feel about it. However, I can go weeks if not months not going into this room apart from turning on the radio each morning.
So this year I decided that I was going to make it into a reading room, I moved all the books I had in the house into this room and made the bed into a space that was soft, warm and cosy for me to sit for hours and read or meditate, as you can see Sophiecat enjoys this room too. Just before Christmas, I bought the fairy lights as wanted some soft lighting rather harshness of the main lights.
I also invested in a bed desk/table which would allow me to write or use my laptop in there too. I am planning on buying a faux fur blanket to keep me warm too.
In Jan I will have been in my house 14 years, over the last couple of years I’ve fallen out of love with the house but as I start to clear it and do the DIY needed I aim to fall back in love with it again. I have to as I don’t have any option to move somewhere else so need to make the best of what I’ve got and I know that I am very lucky to have the house I have so time to enjoy it and bring it back to life.
