nearly there

I am almost to the end of my January/February work overload, I am hoping to get my personal tax package in the mail to my accountant today, and tomorrow I will be boxing up all of those 2011 files and put them in the attic.  I always feel like a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders when that giant project is done.
Then I need to catch up with the current years activities!

In order to be able to put in more hours than I am used to, I find I need extra breaks.  This week's break will find me browsing through this:

It's the British edition of Country Living magazine, every now and then I will treat myself to a copy (usually when I have a Barnes and Noble coupon in hand!)

I pour a cup of tea, and imagine I am reading the magazine in my little cottage overlooking green fields and sheep.  And I pretend that later I will walk down to the pub for a pint.

I look at the ads for Orangeries and Conservatories, and admire kitchens with beams overhead and an Aga ready for some baking.  I peruse the Properties for sale, and imagine purchasing the Edwardian house in Maidstone, Kent which includes a detached two-bedroom cottage.  Swoon.

I dream of going to the Country Living Spring Fair in London, this March.  I would bring home all kinds of goodies and inspiration for my own business.

And then I am ready to go back to my paperwork, after a lovely little respite and some chair traveling.  Do you go on dream trips in your mind?


  1. Oh, this is so lovely. It's nice to lose ourselves in another world for awhile. I agree that an English countryside cottage (or manor house) would be wonderful.

    Recently, my daughter and I have been watching Downton Abbey and loving it!

  2. The colors on the cover draw me in and I wish we had a big Barnes & Noble in our town. I would love to visit England someday.


Thanks for stopping by!
