Friday, Friday, oh how I love Friday. CK goes to nursery on Fridays so I get to spend some quiet time with BB and also get a few chores done. It’s a pleasant way to greet the weekend even if the weather is going to be dire – 11 degrees and rain. Bleurgh.
But never mind that; here’s what I’ve loved this week.
Some thing I read. If you read my A New York state of nostalgia post, you’ll know that a little bit of my heart is yearning to revisit the city that never sleeps. I’m really not helping myself by reading From Notting Hill to New York … Actually by Ali McNamara but it’s a really fun read. If you’re looking for a summer book that’s not too mentally taxing and is set between London and New York, then I’d definitely recommend it.
Some thing I watched. I’m still hooked on The Apprentice and thought this week’s episode was hilarious. Why the contestants make massively over-inflated claims about their ability in a bid to be that week’s project manager is beyond me. It always, ALWAYS, comes back to bite them on the bum. It’s addictive watching even if only to perfect my aim when throwing things at the TV.
Some thing I wore. Because it seems to have done nothing but rain this week, apart from the odd hour of sunshine on Monday, my trusty mac from Monsoon has had a fair few outings. A few years ago I would never had had myself down as a mac-wearer but now I love them. Maybe it was a turning 30 thing?
Some thing I listened to. Have you seen the latest iPhone 5 advert about more photos being taken every day with an iPhone than any other camera? Well the piece of music that accompanies the advert was written by LA based composer Rob Simonsen and it’s one of the most beautiful pieces of music that I’ve ever heard. There’s something about it that touches my heart and soul and makes me smile and cry at the same time. I’m just waiting for him to release the full track so I can download it. If I get a few minutes this weekend, I’m going to see if I can recreate it on the piano.
Some thing I cannot live without. I don’t collect or covet many things. Expensive handbags were my downfall but since having children, that’s one habit I’ve had to break. But there’s something else that I cannot live without and luckily they’re in a much more affordable price range. Notebooks. I love notebooks. There’s just something so nice about a new notebook and writing your name in it with your very best handwriting. Here’s this week’s purchase from Folksy. It’s my new favourite.
So that’s what I’ve loved this week. How about you? Anything to share?
