Since I last posted I’m afraid to say that I haven’t really picked up The Life You Want again – BUT! – I have started reading the book Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott which is an interesting read if you have ever had any desire to be a writer and what to expect (and not to expect!). I also saw that JK Rowling had the third in her crime trilogy (written under pen name Robert Galbraith) out and I was intrigued so I have bought the first in the trilogy, The Cuckoo’s Calling, on my Kindle and started that too. Needless to say I’m not really getting anywhere fast with any of them but it is good to have something to turn to should the telly selection suddenly taper off, however:
It is pretty full on for me at the moment what with Strictly, Masterchef, The Apprentice, and You’re Fired plus I’m catching up with the second series of Catastrophe on 4oD which is hilarious. I have to mention this week’s Apprentice – not to give a spoiler or anything but thank God the right person was kicked out finally and what a dramatic turn of events!
I have been loving Robin Schulz Sugar this week – it’s so catchy but I always seem to pick songs with the oddest videos. Having said that how bloody cool is the poster for this (above) – totally reminds me of the Syd Brak posters we used to get from Athena in the 80s (showing my age here!).
Nothing to report on this front really – boots, skirts, dresses, leggings, skinny jeans, coats, scarves. Oh I do have one new thing to report – some lovely PJs from Tesco – I’m loving their brushed cotton check pattern bottoms and casual T-shirt combo – the photo above is a rubbish low light one so you can’t see the silver thread running through the pattern which is a nice Christmassy touch.
I haven’t really made anything this week but JJ created this cute rocket picture which was then framed by his school for their art gallery evening. It is a way for the school to raise money and throw a social event with tombolas and raffles too. We managed to win a can of coke, a can of diet coke, our fifth chocolate advent calendar and some dubious party bag tat from the tombola but it kept JJ happy!
Going up to London and seeing the boys experiencing it all for the first time was really lovely for me – other than a couple of temporary work contracts in Waterloo and Parliament Square and my Masters degree year at City near Angel I only ever really think of central London as somewhere to go to do and see amazing things – it’s ever changing, dynamic, full of culture and art and theatre and amazing food and jaw dropping architecture plus lets not forget very vivid history. We barely touched the sides of this but this little theatrical beginning has brought a smile to my face. I’m so thankful to my Mum for thinking to book I Want My Hat Back at the National’s temporary theatre – it was brilliant!
So many things to look forward to in the coming weeks – I just need to get myself organised!!
Have a fab weekend Little Loves X
