Procrastination is good for the soul.



At least that is what I hope. Because today I have done b*gger all and I now feel refreshed as a daisy.
I have some dull cupboards in my  bedroom that I was planning to be doing a make-over on, and as I am on a minimal budget I decided on some decorative painting with scrolls and flower baskets and such stuff. Like so.


 But I became rather stuck.
So today I let it go and played different bedding and things like that , and procrastinated like crazy....


while my dogs made sure the whole shebang here remains messy to keep me suitably relaxed .


They like the old tussle on the bed, and it keeps me distracted and stops me from worrying about what the heck I am supposed to hang over the bed now that the decorative wooden carving I painted looks rubbish where I want to put it.


Why is interior decorating so difficult ?Thank goodness for animal distractions!


You know cats  love cardboard boxes and things that are specifially not for them, like shopping baskets.
So I reckoned placing an old cat bed in a big toy bag would probably work a treat.And I wasn't far wrong.


 Hahaha!You can always count on Thomasina being there when you need her!






 Of course having 2 cats, this inevitably happened..



One-nil I think :-)


 Have a great rest of the week ,people!

XOXO

Dearest Bea,
Those pets can teach us so well how we ought to relax once in a while and let go. After such 'off' time we can tackle far more!
Hugs to you and wishing you good luck.

I know how you feel... Why are some days so difficult to get started?
Your bedroom is beautiful and I love the fabric baskets for your cats. My cat is the same, any excuse to sit in a basket or a box! Love your photos of your fur babies.

Great to visit you again and see what you have been up to. I have been away for a whole year from blogger and have missed posting. We moved house which was crazy.
Hope to see you again.
Best wishes,
Jo.
