Have I mentioned how much I love that blogging keeps me in books and stationery? What else does a gal need for her life’s happiness? I’ve built some fantastic working relationships with book publishers and stationery suppliers and I’m so grateful for the opportunities they provide me with. They’re certainly keeping my postie in business! Take a look at what I’ve been loving this week.
All of the stationery! I reviewed a new bullet journal, started learning calligraphy and took part in a stationery swap (post coming next week). And there’s more on the way, including sweary stationery and a giveaway for World Letter Writing Day.
I’ve also managed to read two awesome books this week – an advanced review copy of Water in May, which I’ll have a review up for just ahead of its release in a couple of weeks (spoiler alert: not suitable for reading on public transport! I was almost a blubbing mess) and Volume 7 of Ms Marvel. It’s fast become my new favourite comic book series (yes, I think it’s even beat Batman!) and I’m thinking about devoting a separate blog post to my love for her.
I’m also loving that I’ve been able to spend more time with two of my favourite people lately. There have been cocktails, coffees and cake aplenty. It’s so important to have friends who you can talk to about anything and who you know are always there. Yesterday I went for coffee with one of them and ended up having a mini brunch. Turns out The Quirky Bird does epic eggy cinnamon and raisin bread with bacon and maple syrup – you’ve gotta try it. I had it with Rose Lemonade, which is one of my favourite non-alcoholic drinks (second only to Polgoon’s Elderflower Presse).
The other friend was lovely enough to accompany me to one of the productions on Penlee Park Theatre’s summer programme. We went along to an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey, which will also be reviewed next week.
Oh, how freaking awesome is this season of Game of Thrones? I can’t believe there are only two episodes left! I know some people are a bit pissed that it’s moving so quickly but after the slow pace of the last season or two I actually really appreciate it. I spend most of my time with my jaw on the ground, stunned into silence. I wonder what kind of season cliffhanger we’ll have this time. And, most importantly, who’s going to make it out alive?
Plus Jenson has been asleep in his own bed by 7.30pm every night so far this week – hello scheduled blog posts! I’m feeling so on top of it, it’s amazing, especially after a week of no earlier than 9pm bedtimes the other week.
Have a fab weekend! :)
