Right now, I am mostly…
Reading : I have done very little reading over the last week or so, but when I have picked up my Kobo, it’s been to read Stuart Maconie’s The People’s Songs: The Story of Modern Britain in 50 Records. It’s really a fascinating read, with a social history according to the biggest pop songs of the last seventy years.
Listening : Last week, having temporarily given up on attempting to run (it’s far too hot for that at the moment), I have been going for a walk every evening. I walk for about as long as it takes me to listen to an episode of the Empire podcast, which is usually about an hour or so. The weather has been so lovely, and I snapped the above photograph on one such walk. Disclaimer: Instagram has had a lot of influence over how that photograph looks.
Winning : Following on from last week, when I mentioned that I had won a Tatty Devine necklace, I won a further four giveaways! I won some chocolates, some Oriflame goodies, a Julia Donaldson book (that my postman proceeded to ruin) and a little pack of beauty goodies, including a Ciate nail varnish. What a week of wins! I’ve got my eyes on another couple of prizes that I want now.
Baking : For some reason we seemed to have no food in the house last week, so I decided to bake a loaf of bread. I haven’t had a whole lot of luck with baking my own bread before, so I was a bit apprehensive, but it turned out yummy. It really was very good!
Touching : If this one sounds dodgy, I apologise. But yesterday I spent rather a lot of time with hands on my best friend Anna’s belly. With good reason, I should add, because the wee baby girl in there has just started moving, and I wanted to feel it. She’s only moving very slightly, but I felt it! I can’t really believe that there is an actual human in there, but I can’t wait to meet her!
Dreaming : Last night I dreamt of Jack from Lost. Bearing in mind that I hate Jack from Lost, it wasn’t pleasant to dream of myself flirting with him, and actually being in a relationship with him. Whatever I was doing with him was making Juliette jealous. And now it has made me feel different towards him when I watch him on the show. Not ideal, but I’m sure it will pass.
