Watching When I started watching House of Cards a couple of weeks ago I didn’t realise that the second season would start the day after I finished it. Consider me pretty smug.
Listening to Lots of alt-J and James Blake. Both of their first albums remind me of driving; alt-J’s was exactly the same length as my drive to work in summer 2012 and I listened to it all the time, whilst Blake’s reminds me of driving my Mum’s car to the hospital in summer 2013. I’m always fascinated by how much my memories are tied up with music. I heard the tiniest sliver of this on the TV today and it took me straight back to being at school and sitting on the tables at break time.
Reading Most newspapers – especially as it was Observer Food Monthly this week; I loved the recipes from Jack Monroe‘s book.
Eating Too much, basically, and all of it comfort food. Salty, soft poached eggs; the apple-iest apple cake with salted caramel sauce; macaroni cheese with baked beans; Valentine’s cupcakes; cassoulet. I even cleaned a plate at Kimos, which is an unheard of miracle.
Lusting after Everyone at Speakeasy. What a beautiful bunch they are. Also ummer and a really great night’s sleep.
Talking about My wonderful friends getting brilliant new jobs, the BAFTAs (especially Emma Thompson and JLaw), my overly vivid dreams and all that food. Oh, and that day of love…
