30 day life overhaul: day four: rubbish, culture and bookishness
Categories: blogging mums

Phew – four days in to this malarkey and I feel quite refreshed but being so busy, hitting the sofa for a bit of R&R this evening is no bad thing. It’s still f-f-f-freezing and feels more like the Christmas holidays with the snow. It’s hard to believe it’s April but we’ve been dosing up on Vitamin D to dispel the lack of sunshine – if you haven’t tried it, you should.

The great thing about doing this overhaul is that mundane activities are suddenly more fun and time feels more precious. So after waving off lots of rubbish bags from my dejunk, and tipping my proverbial hat to my friendly binmen this morning, I powered through some work which gave me plenty of time to spend the afternoon culture-vulturing at the Victoria & Albert Museum with friends and a gaggle of children. We couldn’t get tickets for the Bowie exhibition, it was hell getting from the tube into the museum and really busy inside, but it’s a free day out with loads of stuff to gawk and wonder at.

Heading East, a bracing walk across Tower Bridge this afternoon felt a bit foolhardy but we carried on to The Tate Modern for a private view of the Lichtenstein Retrospective and were rewarded with a dose of colour and inspiration.

I love the homage to Matisse in the photo above and the one below is a picture within a picture, if you want to learn more, pop over to the Tate site here.

My main mission for the day was sending in my book pitch – I did it. If I hadn’t, I’m sure the rest of the day would have felt meaningless. Roll on tomorrow.

  1. Fantastic art work. I recently had the chance to silky for a hotel review in London, I should have said I wanted to go to galleries, I’ve never had the chance before.
