Ready, steady, work

Welcome to my new little attic office. It’s little alright, but now I’ve tidied and arranged it I love it. I even have my own snowy view today. The sheep are there. And there’s the valley. My view changes every day and I love watching the seasons go by.

This is where I…
Write my recipes every day – I use IA Writer for day to day writing and I store all my files on Dropbox.
Colour-correct photos using my second favourite software – Lightroom.
Read and send emails – I really do try to limit this. I’d love to only check once a day.
Make calls – I love making phone calls on my beautiful new black GPO phone – best part of my day!
Write letters – something I would like to do more of.
It’s a proper office! I love it. I love being here and running my own show.

      The light is amazing – especially when it’s about to rain or snow and the sun peeps in. Love it!

    I like the phone too.
