As we’re still in that no man’s land between Christmas and New Year, you’d be forgiven for not realising today is Monday, but it is. This time of year always makes me want to blog more, so I’m leaning into the instinct with a post today and tomorrow.
I’ve just started watching Peaky Blinders; I’ve tried before but didn’t get past the first two episodes. We’re now almost at the end of the first series, and obviously I love it. Confusing feelings for the psychopathic Tommy Shelby are to be expected, I assume.
Bookstagram stresses me out. I veer wildly between wanting to be a part of it, and feeling completely overwhelmed by all the things you’re ‘supposed’ to be doing. I would love to be part of it as a community, but it just feels as though there’s so much to do, and you can’t just dip in and out of it, you have to be in it. And I don’t think I have the brain power for it alongside everything else. I’ve therefore decided that I’m just going to read lots and post on Instagram when I want to, and not try to emulate everyone else.
I’m planning a 10 x 10 clothing challenge at some point in January. I’m going to pick 10 pieces of clothing, and wear only them, in varying combinations, for ten days (while washing them, of course). I’m hoping it will reinvigorate some of my favourite pieces of clothing, and encourage me to try some new things
Dracula starts on Wednesday, and I’m both excited and terrified. I hear it’s very good, but also scary, and I am not always so great with scary.
