Why hello Friday. I hope you’ve all had a good week. Last weekend we had a much needed lazy one which was just what we needed. It was mainly spent at home with a little trip out to the cinema. I was then in a good place to start the week, which was lucky as I took my class on a school trip on Tuesday which always feels like at least two days long.
I haven’t taken as many photos this week as I did last week but there have been some things that I really really loved this week.
This week I…
I started Boy, Snow, Bird on Sunday and am LOVING it. I read over half on Sunday and have been reading a little more every night so am nearly done. Its actually a re-telling of Snow White which I’d forgotten until half way though when it said ‘Snow is not the fairest of them all’ at the end of part 1. I think its really clever and beautifully written. It looks at race inequality in America in the 50s as well as exploring relationships within step families and the bond between sisters.
Its almost a little rambly, in a good way. It keeps you reading. I guess by that I mean that it flows well. The narrator switches for each part which changes the tone slightly. I am really enjoying reading it and can’t wait to finish it this weekend.
Honey and lemon again as this end of this cold seems to be seriously lingering. I’m starting to wonder if the congestion may now be past of a sinus infection of some sort. I’m hoping taking it easy this weekend might be enough to shift it.
I also made pancakes again because once I have the taste for them that’s it, and some plans for March too, including booking trains to meet my friend Sarah for shopping in Birmingham (its half way between our houses!).
Logan, another real hit for me this week. I wasn’t too bothered to go and see it but Tom wanted to watch it and we hadn’t been to the cinema for ages and I’m so glad we did. It was a great story, some good action scenes and a bit of a tear-jerker at times. It’s quite long but didn’t feel it and I managed to stay awake for the whole thing, despite feeling very sleepy before we went!
I’m loving this blush pink sweatshirt from Primark. So soft and comfy and a bargain at £5. A nice change from my usual grey too.
Some compliments from children in my class…
‘I like your top’
‘I like your jumper’
‘I like your moustache’…
Hmm ye thanks…
I’ve stuck with my DECHOX for British Heart Foundation so far. Its not been easy and I’m definitely eating a lot more sweets that I normally would. I plan to try and have a healthier week next week! You can read more about it on my post here, sign up here, and sponsor me here! No chocolate for the whole of March, I’m pretty impressed I’ve survived the first 10 days if I’m honest.
We have another pretty relaxing weekend planned with a few house viewings booked in too.
I hope you all have a good week. I’m linking up with the lovely Morgana at Coffee Work Sleep Repeat for this week’s #LittleLoves and am looking forward to reading about what everyone else has been loving this week too.
