I seem to have quite an eclectic taste in stuff, a creative mix of old and new, traditional and modern, and I really like it that way. We have a 1930s bungalow that was updated/ extended in the early 1990s and we’ve lived here for two and a half years, doing it up bit by bit. I tend to like to have a reasonably neutral background but love to add bright splashes of colour in an informal mix-and-match hotch-potch of stuff I like that doesn’t necessarily go together in theory, but somehow because each item goes with my taste it all looks surprisingly Ok when put together in practice. No-one would ever accuse me of being a minimalist; I’m quite content with a bit of creative clutter around me when it comes to personal possessions… 🙂
Life events have conspired to pull me away from blogging over the last couple of months, and the idea of taking part in this year’s April Blogging from A-Z Challenge seems like a good way to try to get back into the habit of reading and posting regularly. Originally I thought of just using any old random words to go with the particular letter of the day, but realistically without a clear theme to work towards I’m not sure I’d be able to keep my focus for a full month… So instead I’ve opted for a relatively simple, if slightly self-indulgent work-around: This year I’ll be posting 26 things about me, nothing too taxing to write about yet still fulfilling the brief!
