Day 3
Day in the Life!
Tell us about your typical day. Or maybe do a photo diary of what you are doing on the hour every hour for 12 hours. Or you could sum up what you did today. 

It's Day 3 of the May blogging challenge, I'm still here! In a previous post I mentioned I'm going to give my bedroom a mini makeover. Yesterday, I purchased a bedside table from Ikea. I forgot how much fun Ikea is, and how many great things there are to buy! I was sensible and only bought what I went there for, a bedside table. So today, I rolled up my sleeves and braved some DIY. I thought a flat pack would be easy to put together, but I discovered otherwise. After a few green teas and chasing the pup around because he couldn't resist stealing the screwdriver, it was complete! So, here it is (below) put together with my own fair hands. I have placed a few decorative items on top, and now my room is one step closer to being how I want it to look. I plan on reading more BEDM posts tonight and then will carry on reading my new book, Paper Aeroplanes. Luckily, I had today off work so I took advantage and spent the day doing very little.

  1. Hi Christina,

    I've just spend ages reading your blog, I'm really enjoying it! I love the bedside table a lot.

    I'm also trying to promote my blog at the moment as I only started it up last week. Please have a look if you get a chance! I will enjoy following you.
