I’m so excited to have found this linky, hosted by the lovely Morgana at Coffee Work Sleep Repeat, and I really think its the perfect one for me! All of my favourite things in one place to summarise my week, brilliant. So this is what I’ve been loving this week…
Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard. It was the one book from my honeymoon selection that I didn’t get round to reading whilst we were away. I have realised that it’s probably aimed at teenagers actually, but I’ve been enjoying it all the same. Its a great story about female friendships that actually resonates with all ages I feel, I see parallels in my own friendships over the years and I can even see similarities in the friendships groups in my reception class. There is an underlying theme of mental health issues which is really fitting since World Mental Health Day was this week. I’ve read the whole book in just over a week and found it easy to read and really enjoyable.
Usually I only manage about 10 minutes reading a day just before I go to sleep, but on my train journey home from a weekend in Manchester I enjoyed a good 40 minutes of uninterrupted reading time, which was bliss.
The first episode of the new series of the Apprentice. A bit late I know, but its 10pm finish is too late for me mid-week(!) so we record it and catch up another day. I find it infuriating and compelling in equal measures, and to be honest I find the first few episodes a little hard to get into when there are so many candidates!
This super cute little leaf-stuffed bear. I will share a how-to blog post next weeks as its a lovely little outdoor Autumn activity. My class absolutely loved it on our Forest School day, and were so attached to their new little bear friends.
My new jacket from Primark. I was lacking any jacket that was smart enough for evening wear and not as warm as my huge winter coat. My husband dislikes it on principle because its from Primark, but also because its grey, and he says I wear too much grey! Excuse the silly pose and poor photo quality, I was trying to recreate a photo I took on my hen weekend because we walked past the apartments where we stayed.
A child in my class talking all about ‘infection books’, took me a while to realise he meant non-fiction books!
I has such a lovely weekend visiting my sister and her gorgeous little pug Harriet. We ate some amazing food and had a fun night out and Junk Yard Golf and spent the perfect lazy Sunday at her flat.
Thanks for popping by,
