So it snowed in Cornwall this week. For the first time in a long time. And when I say snowed, I mean it looked like this…
And the world stopped! Schools closed, bus services were cancelled and it took me three hours to travel to a mile away from my office – then I turned around and came home again. Yep, Cornwall really is nothing like the rest of the UK.
Here’s a look at the rest of my week.
Read: How to Stop Time by Matt Haig. Such a good book. I’d describe it as a cross between The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Time Traveler’s Wife and The Adjustment Bureau. I’ve got a full review post going up next week for this month’s Blogger Book Nook post.
Watched: A lot of Peppa Pig (Jenson was home with an ear infection for a few days). Plus the usual Grey’s and Neighbours. I need to up my game because Luke has already finished Daredevil season two without me and stormed through Luke Cage and Iron Fist. I’m so behind.
Heard: I’ve got so many podcasts on my list but I’ve just not had the time to listen to them. I read on the bus and I don’t have anything on in the background while I’m writing because I like to concentrate on one thing at a time. Do regular podcast listeners multitask or give the episodes their full attention?
Made: A lot of hot chocolates. I’m loving this liquid chocolate from Iceland – just £2 and super cute too.
Wore: Olaf PJs. They’re super snuggly and Jenson loves them.
And lastly: So, yeah, I finally caved and started using Insta Stories. I’d be interested to know how you think Stories adds to your experience as both a blogger and a blog reader, so do leave a comment if you’d like to share your thoughts. My main reason for giving it a whirl is that there are things that I’d like to share but I don’t want them to mess up my grid (I know, I hate me too), so I think it could be quite fun. I’d avoided it before because I spend enough time on social media as it is without having something else to scroll through (I’m easily hooked). Plus I can scroll through an Insta feed as quickly as I like whereas Stories seems more time consuming. I’ve loved reading updates from Dom, Hannah, Cat and Cathryn though, so I’m going to give it a chance.
I’m also looking forward to catching up with a couple of friends over a brew this weekend. A bar in town has started serving Creme Egg hot chocolates and they look incredible. It would be rude not to try them, right?
Have a lovely weekend :)
