Watching Masterchef, The Office, Black Books, Frozen (yes, again).
Listening to Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet – I was lucky enough to be in the audience for the recording and I got to ask a question! It was an incredibly interesting recording, and I was obviously very excited to have my question picked. Also a lot of Disney soundtracks, Jack Johnson, inappropriate Tenacious D and a rendition of Like a Prayer that prompted a full on ‘what just happened?’ response.
Reading Still Hotel World by Ali Smith – it’s fantastic!
Writing Not enough blog posts – I missed this week’s Drinks Report, but it’ll be back next week! I wrote pages and pages in my journal instead, which was just good for my brain.
Eating So much great food! It was my birthday last week, and I had a week off work so I was back at home in Gloucestershire. We went to the falafel shop for lunch and Hobbs House Bakery (of the Fabulous Baker Brothers fame) for tea and tarts. I also had the most amazing birthday cake – my Mama is the best.
Talking about The power of the political system, oppression, fear, how much wine is enough, dates, selfies, the worst kind of cookbooks, birthdays, Game of Thrones theories, geographical knowledge, how people are great, climbing (I went bouldering for the first time in a million years and boy, was I awful. Next time I’ll be bad, and the time after that I might just be ok), moral dilemmas, secret Instagrams, what everyone I know was doing when they were 24 (getting married, mostly. Sorry to disappoint), India, interrailing, teaching, Otter’s Adventure (the ultimate CD-ROM game) and uncompromised lives.
It’s been a wonderful week and I’ve been feeling very grateful for all the amazing people and things in my life. It’s good to remember that sometimes.
