Day 249: Useful Storage Baskets to Contain Items, and a Nice Predictable Feel Good Film

I don’t tend to worry anyone when I don’t get as much done as planned. I started the day off with a grocery shopping delivery and then had breakfast in the garden. It’s was nice to see the sun for most of the day, as it’s been quite rainy lately. The outlook for the following week is early to mid twenties which is better.

By the middle of the day there was pretty much sun everywhere in our garden now that the trees are down. I thought it would take me longer than it has to get used to the space without the silver birches. It’s actually so much brighter. No design ideas have sprung to mind yet, although I did sit in a different spot this afternoon to have a cup of tea. I have a feeling that it could be a good place for a seating area as it will continue to get the sun in the evenings (during the summer months) which would be good.

After a wasted trip to the post office that had closed earlier than usual this afternoon, I popped into Asda to pick a parcel up. They were my new baskets that I ordered (similar to the ones that I put in the medicine cupboard the other day. I think that they would be very useful in my wardrobe instead of these ones that used to be part of a plastic drawer set. This is how it looked…

… and this is how it could look with the new baskets. Not sure which size to use on this shelf. I only have two large ones but I think three large would look good here. I might place another order.

Different combination of baskets

The smaller ones will go well in the food cupboard downstairs I think.

I spent a bit more time in the spare room today boxing up some items lying around. The plan is to get a lot of it into the garage tomorrow. Let’s see how I get on with making more space in there first though!

This evening

My husband cooked dinner this evening which was a nice surprise as it gave me a bit more time in the spare room and to sneak in another couple of episodes of Friends with my eldest. We do enjoy watching that together – we’re up to season 8 now.

The dinner was delicious – teriyaki chicken and egg fried rice. Then we all watched a movie on Netflix called Love Guaranteed. A nice easy going feel good film.

I just walked into the kitchen and thought about leaving it until the morning, but I think the best thing is to just get it cleaned up now so that I don’t wake up to mess in the morning.

Until tomorrow…

  1. I have baskets like that in my laundry closet, made sure I labeled them because they are deep. They have worked well, but since I am the only one who really uses that space it is up to me.
