Thank God It's Friday! This is what I used to tell myself on Friday mornings while driving to office. And I would start dreaming about the weekend plans, which mostly consisted of chilling at home. I was never a very sociable person in those times when I was a corporate slave. That ten to eight schedule would sap my energy and my non-conformist self would cringe in pain at having to follow the office etiquette and routine. Not that I didn't love my work, in fact I loved it very much but I hated following the compulsion of having to sit in one place. But I did it well and did it for ten long years. Phew! So all through my working years, my weekends were for myself and my boyfriend (now husband). Things have changed now. I long to see and meet people. And I no longer wait for Fridays because now weekend means whenever my husband is at home and three of us get to spend the day together. He being a freelancer is able to bring us that joy even in the middle of the week.
So I know how you feel on Fridays. Relieved! And hoping to get the most out of your weekend. That's why I saved the inviting pictures of cosy nooks to share with you today.
Do you have such a corner in your house, where you love to spend your weekend sitting and reading a book, or chatting up with a friend over a cup of tea, or sitting and looking out the window? You know, it is actually very easy to create such a personal and cosy space. Just put large floor cushions by a window which gets lots of natural light and throw dozens of small pillows and bolsters, hang a cane lamp, keep a plant on the window sill or on top of a stack of books. And there you have it, your own cosy corner.
HAVE A SHORT FRIDAY AND A LONG WEEKEND.
