A Playlist for the Working Girl

Merry Monday, it is time to wake up, find an outfit that does not clash and get to your day job. I am not a morning person. Each day begins in a blur as I stumble around my room trying to find tights and matching shoes, while attempting to remain quiet for the sake of my fellow cottage dwellers.

Sometimes you wait for work that never comes and other days you want to hide from everyone who keeps throwing work at you.
