Are you all fed up talking about this week’s heatwave? To be fair, I spent ‘that day’ on the beach where it was a pleasant 20 degrees with a steady fresh breeze! It was very nice though! I could happily do it every week! Here’s what else I have been enjoying this week!
I have finally finished We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. I do not know where I went wrong. I should have loved this book. It was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, and lots of the themes in the book linked into my Psychology background. But… I just could not get into it! It a story about siblings and family dynamics, amongst many other things. Has anyone else read this? If so I would love to hear your opinion!
I have finished the entire first season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix. It was utter nonsense, but I quite enjoyed it! Mr C and I also watched Angels and Demons last weekend. We both got to about 30 minutes before the end, before deciding that we had seen it before! Ooppps!
I have been listening to the sound of my coffee machine every morning. We bought it with vouchers we received when we got married, but to be honest, it has rarely been on! Now it”s time to use it, or lose it! I drink so much more coffee now than I used to – I blame the kids! It’s been good though. Really good!
Factor 15 on an overcast day, and to be honest, it wasn’t enough! The boys were slathered in their Factor 50 and we enjoyed a day at Portrush beach. Even I had my shorts on!
I’ve been doing some pottering around in my garden. You may remember that I mentioned weeks ago that I had started a herb pallet. It still a bit sparse and I’m still not sure if I will keep it when I design my veggie patch. Meanwhile though, I made some slate and chalk signs so that Mr C knows what to get when I send him out for some herbs!
I been enjoying letting the boys get outside together a bit more. I don’t know what they were discussing in this picture, but they are like two little old men putting the world to rights! (Or discussing the abundance of weeds!)
And that’s it for this week’s round up! I hope you are all enjoying the sun, and appreciating the little things!
