Do you ever set something aside as a treat for completing a particularly boring pile of paperwork or other such remedial task? I do. A lot. The things I reward myself with are not always things that need to be bought. Sometimes it’s watching an episode of Gilmore Girls, or doing my nails during one of Cora’s naps, but honestly, these days a lot of the rewards I set myself are things like take a shower alone in the bathroom or have lunch at lunch time. Sometimes I set myself fancier rewards and recently one of those things was a letter board from April and the Bear.
I’ve coveted things like letter boards for years [I played with my dad’s letraset when I was young and have since loved the idea of personalising something in font], so when Siobhan started stocking letter boards at the beginning of this year, I waited for months until the time was right and last week I visited April and the Bear [when it was open – huzzah!] and wrapped my hands around it’s dainty frame.
I of course immediately became paralyzed with what to write once I got my board home [too many options. Do I just write HELLO?], so for now I’m very happy with punching in our favourite movie quotes. That should keep me busy for a few years.
