When a new born baby is on the scene, pleasure is taken in the simple things - drinking tea while it's hot, doing a load of washing and pegging it out in the morning sun, getting to do a an uninterrupted wee, mid day naps and fresh linen. Give me those things and i'll be a happy woman.
Since bringing Elke home from hospital some 6 weeks ago, I've spent a considerable amount of time in my bedroom, you know, napping. Mid day naps, afternoon naps and night time naps (because the sleep one get's over night can still be considered 'napping' when a new born is on the scene).
It's been a priority to keep the linen fresh* so i've changed it often and wasted too much of my valuable time faffing about with pattern, texture and colour.
I pinched the yellow otomi from Elke's room, added a row of yellow dots above the bed and positioned my portable succulent garden on the bedside. Fruity, just how I like it.
As the weather turns cooler i'll dig out the woollens and mohair and let the fruity decor rest for a few months, but no more than that!
*because those first weeks post pregnancy are sweaty, filthy weeks.
