Wow, April already?! Time does fly when the world is on lockdown, doesn’t it? I actually stopped doing “Goal” type posts for this year as I felt they were getting really repetitive but with not much else occupying my time, I thought why not focus on a few things to do this month?
I hope everyone is doing okay. These are very uncertain times but if anyone wants a chat then you can always dm me. I would love to know how you’re passing your time inside, are you WRF? On furlough, or self-employed like me?
I think it would be a completely different experience for me if I was working from home. My boyfriend currently is, however, I think it’s really helped him to have that structure in place. I think it’s actually been good for both of us as it’s meant we still have a routine going.
01. Our space has actually had to have a layout change since Elliot has been working from home, it’s working for us at the moment but it’s not ideal. However, it’s also due a freshen up too. I’m hoping to do some painting of the skirting boards and trim around the doors as well as the picture rail. But I’m in two minds about having a completely white space OR whether I should go bold and paint them black? Or a dark blue/green? I would love people’s opinions on this.
I love a good neutral colour and as the white walls are staying, I’m hoping that adding a darker colour will add some contrast and interest. We also have wooden doors and floors so I think the dark skirting will work well with these. Let me know your thoughts!
I’m also aware paint is not an essential purchase at the moment so I’ll see what I can do with this. Online shops are still open, however, but if this goal has to wait, then so be it.
02. I’d also love to get a bit creative this month. You don’t have to leave your house to make the most of your time and activities. My work has got canceled for the foreseeable future so I’m finding myself with a lot of free time at the moment, which is why I am posting nearly every day here. I’d love to perhaps start uploading more on IGTV again. I’ve also been using Insta stories daily and I’m thinking of trying my hand at Tik Tok as it’s my favourite way to waste a few hours at the moment.
I think it’s easy to say we don’t have enough time for hobbies or activities but really, I’m finding a lot of time on my hands at the moment so why not dedicate them to all the things I don’t ever have the time for!
03. And lastly, like half the world, Elliot and I are now obsessed with Disney+ since it’s UK launch date (which couldn’t have come at a better time). We’ve started off by watching a lot of films we’ve never seen before, like the new Aladdin and Toy Story 4. It’s also my goal to watch alllll the Star Wars films from the start. I’ve never seen any of the newer ones that they made, the only one I’ve seen is “Solo: A Star Wars Story” which I loved, and seen as most of the films are over two hours long, this is the perfect activity whilst we’re at home.
What are your goals for the month ahead?
