I am so ready for half term. The idea of a whole week of no alarms, no rushing around, just slowing down and taking it easy sounds sooo good. I’m fortunate that the overtime I did last month has allowed me to take a week off, so we’ll be able to spend a few days back to back as a family for the first time in ages. But before this week of bliss, let’s take a look back at a few favourites from last week.
I won some rather epic giveaways. I adore my new bag from Papier. I actually won two (one for me and one for a friend), so I popped one in the post along with a few stationery goodies for a friend who needed a pick-me-up.
We’ve been at it with the chalks again! Luke drew an outline of Elmer and Jenson and his friend coloured in the patchwork squares. It kept them quiet for a few minutes!
I reserved a copy of Unicorn: The Memoir of a Muslim Drag Queen after reading nothing but good things about it on #Bookstagram. My library TBR pile is getting a bit out of hand but I’ll certainly be prioritising this one.
Plots and plans
Abrams & Chronicle sent me one of their awesome Plots and Plans organisers.
It’s a rather stunning hardback with two notepads – you can write out your to do list and then schedule everything into your week.
Pretty and functional. I’m gonna be productive AF.
