Three things that have made me happy this week are these two new pairs of shoes and this organic red wine. For years I haven’t been able to drink red wine as I’d have an allergic reaction to it (itching inside my throat, flushed and mottled face and neck that also itched) but it was suggested to me that I try organic red wine. No adverse effects! And it also tasted wonderful.

What I’ve been watching:
I’ve been watching a lot of this. Far more than I would normally have watched during the week. I am partially attributing it to the addictive soap opera feel it has but if I’m honest, I’ve also been watching it as a means of escaping this:
I should never have started this in term time, it’s a holiday read. I’m really enjoying the writing but the denseness of it requires a level of concentration that I really don’t possess on a weeknight after the combined efforts of working and managing a household all day. I’ve hit pause on this book and will return to it when I’m better placed to be running towards it rather than running away from it.
Season three of this favourite was released last night. Already two episodes in. The tension! I love it!
Thought of the week:
Imagine if we were all like this kitty? Seeing our strengths in the mirror rather than our weaknesses…
Or perhaps kitty just has an inflated sense of self, in which case, let’s not be like kitty!
What I’m reading right now:
Until next week… 🙂📚☕
