It’s been a funny ol’ week and felt very much ‘business as usual’ but still with little moments to treasure. Here are some of my highlights.
Read: I bought Flow magazine for the first time a year or two ago and fell in love with it instantly – but £10 an issue is quite expensive and I hadn’t bought again since, until I went for a spa day and decided to treat myself to some rather sexy reading material. I loved it so much that I think I’m going to fork out for each issue. Fortunately it’s only a quarterly publication so shouldn’t break the bank – but look how pretty!
I think @flow_magazine might be my new favourite magazine ❤ It’s totally worth the £10 cover price to feel this inspired. I especially loved the female thinkers piece (and poster!) and being introduced to @paperhazell, a woman after my own heart 📚🤓 I read it cover to cover and it will now be making its way into my permanent collection. I just wish I could afford the back copies – I only have one previous issue 😣
Books-wise, I started my review copy of Living the Dream by Lauren Berry. I hate ending the working week with an unfinished book and will be finishing this on Monday. I’ll post a review when I’m done but I’m already intrigued by the lives of two women approaching 30 with none of their shit together.
I also wrote a post about ways you can help introduce young people to classics. I’d love to know what you made of the must-reads when you were growing up.
Watched: Apart from the usual Peppa Pig and Neighbours, we haven’t seen anything particularly special this week, although we did watch an IT Crowd doc on All 4, which reminded me how much I love the show.
Heard: Bit of a different one this week – I took Jenson for a hearing test just to check there’s no hearing-related reason why his speech isn’t as developed as others his age. His slept through the whole test which actually turned out to be a good thing and his hearing appears to be completely fine. Yay!
Made: Play-Doh! I love that it still smells the same. We spotted a box in Argos for £10.99 that came with 18 different colours and 16 accessories – Jenson loves it and it’s a great way to help him learn his colours.
Wore: I’ll tell you what I didn’t wear this week (no, not like that!) – my swimming costume. Instead I watched Luke take Jenson for his swimming lesson and it was super-cute. Luke’s so impressed with how far he’s come and we’ll definitely be going back again next term.
And lastly: I’m so freaking excited about my blog’s fifth birthday next week. I’ll be sharing a review and giveaway each day of the week, kinda like my National Stationery Week series from earlier in the year, but this time focusing on some of my favourite Cornish businesses. I can’t wait to share them :)
I’m also hosting #lbloggers on Sunday. Come and join me at 7pm to chat blogging trends and technologies.
Hope you have a lovely weekend :)
