Summertime Hodgepodge

It's good to be taking part in Hodgepodge this week! I'm hoping to show you round my new home next week on my blog.

1) July is National Anti-Boredom month. When was the last time you were bored? What's your go-to cure for boredom?

I am very rarely bored. If I have nothing to do then I fill it with something. I was a little bored yesterday as it was my day off but now I own a house theres always some sort of cleaning or catching up to do.

2) What's the last thing you made a reservation for?

Probably getting my nails done last week.

3) What's one thing on your summer 'bucket list'? Any plans to make it happen?

Since I have just bought my house my housemate and I have a lot of things we want to update/change. I really want to get out fascia boarding and guttering sorted. We have it all booked in, it just needs to be done!

4) What's your favourite summertime sip?

Archers and Lemonade.

5) What do you find is the best way to handle another persons hostility and hopefully ease tension?

I often find people who are hostile don't want to talk. So I don't interrogate them with even more questions. I deal with some hostile people at work and I tend to just avoid them. However, if it's a patient then I just see to them when needed and try not to act humorous/jokey.

6) Your favourite film set in summer?

I love the notebook, especially the summer scenes filmed in Charleston.

7) What word are you using too much lately?

I am using the word 'boom' a lot lately. So when I complete something at work I say 'boom' instead of 'done.' It's different I guess.

8) Insert your own random thought here.

I am trying to 'fill' and empty part of my lounge with something. We have a corner that is just blank. We have a vase of reeds but something is needed on the wall. We have a mirror and canvas on another wall already. Any ideas?

Have you ever been to Charleston? If not, it's absolutely a place to's gorgeous! All of the history...just to stand in Battery Park and to look at the old houses, imagining the ladies in their hooped dresses watching the beginning of the war. {Sigh} One of my favorite places! Don't go in the summer, though...waaaay too hot & humid. October is the perfect time to go!
My SIL does an excellent job with decorating. She has all of these little touches that are just beautiful. Check out Pinterest and see if you can get some ideas.

You should definitely put Charleston on your list of places to visit. It is a beautiful old city filled with charm, wonderful restaurants and shops, and lots of history. Happy new home!!

Charleston is on my bucket list, but will not get around to going there this summer!

I love Charleston. We visit at least twice a year since my daughter lives there. We have visited the sets where "the notebook" was filmed at.

I haven't been to Charleston but would sure love to visit. I agree with #1, my house gets cluttered easy so i am forever doing chores and vacuuming to keep the fleas away from the dog. ;) Have a great day & hope you had a happy 4th of July!

Try a bookcase in the corner? You can never have enough bookcases. C.
