Thoughts & Feelings & etc.
How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was super productive with my bathroom makeover! I went for a really pretty aqua blue colour called ‘Clear Aqua’ for a feature wall and have set myself up with a dressing table. I wanted to get some nice fabric for a window treatment and found a gorgeous piece in Spotlight. I thought it would cost a bit, but when the girl scanned it… it was a DOLLAR A METRE! Insane. I should have gotten more! It’s not completely done yet, but when it is you know I’m going to share pics with you.
It’s only Monday but today I did something that made me feel really grown up. Do you ever get that feeling like sometimes you’re just pretending to be grown up, but then you do something really responsible and you’re like… OK, maybe I am a proper grown up!? Anyway, I was really proud of myself so I think the rest of the week is going to go well.
I get really annoyed when people make a big deal of how many followers they have, because that’s not the reason why I do my blog. I love to create, I love to design and I love finding inspiration and I love sharing these passions with y’all. But I have to say, I’m really chuffed that I’m past the 4000 followers mark! I never thought that my blog would be that popular, especially as past attempts at blogging failed miserably! I know I say it all the time but all the gorgeous messages people send me make me so happy. Sorry if my replies get a bit samey but I’m not sure what else to say other than I really appreciate people taking the time to write and say hello and give feedback!
So I’m mulling some stuff over in my mind at the moment and working on a secret project which I’m going to share with y’all later. Hopefully people will like it! Stay tuned Mildly Interested Followers!
Stay warm if you’re in Adelaide, stay cool if you’re not!

Wow, I went crazy with the posts tonight! Made up for the fact I did nothing yesterday, which seemed to annoy some people because I lost five followers overnight. Don’t you wish you could ask them why they stopped following? Haha! ‘Was it me? Did I post too many scarf tutorials?!’
Anyway, I had a good day today, and I think that needs to be acknowledged. Most of my day was spent doing SafeTALK suicide prevention training… which isn’t fun… but it was incredibly helpful and so interesting. Once people start talking it’s amazing to see how mental health & suicide has touched everyone in some way. Anyway, I am now a trained SafeTALK person, so if you ever need to talk, let me know!
We also got an EFTPOS machine today… oh my gosh it is so fun to use! I was so taken with it that someone had to remind me that it was 3:30 and that I had to go home.
And the last exciting thing that is happening I want to share is that I’m going to go pick over the books at Borders in the city tomorrow night with my dad! Poor Borders. Oh well, their loss is my gain. I’m hoping there’s still some good stuff there seeing everything in the store is 30-40% off. I really want to get some Terry Pratchett books and if there’s any left, some gift cards.
OK, have a good night/day everyone, and check back tomorrow to find out what I bought - I know y’all will be on the edge of your seat with anticipation!
