Late last week, the to-do list was mounting, the weather was grizzly and the seasonal cheer was rather lacking in the house. So what to do? Take a break and faff around with lovely evergreen foliage, that's what!
It turns out that you do get some funny looks picking up sticks in the drizzle, umbrella in one hand, on a grey street in South-east London, but we urban foragers must find our nature wherever we can! Plus some beautiful trails of ivy from a neglected (no complaint) railway bridge and I was all set for a bit of wreath-making and a bit of decorating.
Now that I'm working from home a lot I do find the mess and all the STUFF in our flat (which I love, there are certainly worse places to be all day!) a bit overwhelming. So it was definitely a good thing mental-happiness-wise to have a bit of a clear up and add a little wintery prettiness. As we ramp up to Christmas I think I'll add more, there isn't quite the lavish abundance that I'd really yet... More is always more, amiright?
