This post was originally started using the Currently prompt from RUKristin. Have a good week!
I’ve been watching ShadowHunters on Netflix. It’s based on the Mortal Instruments books by Cassandra Clare. I also started watching House of Cards and continued watching Doctor Who. (Ooh might have to start Torchwood again once I catch up with all of Doctor Who – I’m currently on Asylum of the Daleks so not sure quite how many episodes I have to watch).
I’ve been trying to work on The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo. I got to the bit about making sure your socks have room to breathe.
The socks and tights stored in your drawer are essentially on holiday. They take a brutal beating in their daily work, trapped between your foot and your shoe, enduring pressure and friction to protect your precious feet. The time they spend in your drawer is their only chance to rest. But if they are folded over, balled up or tied, they are always in a state of tension, their fabric stretched and their elastic pulled. They roll about and bump into each other each time the drawer is opened and closed.
Marie Kondo, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying
Well it’s a mixture – had UCB playing in the kitchen and have had WWRY or Les Miserables playing while working. Chris had, had a playlist playing on Saturday while we all got ready for our adventures. Jaxon and I had a boogy round the kitchen to this one by Jess Glynne. Don’t think he was too impressed with my dancing skills but it was good fun for me.
Good, last week was a bit busy but Jaxon and I had some good times too. We went to Lemon and Ginger on Monday and then I was at the Creative Bedfordshire Conference on Friday while he hung out with Grandpa. On Saturday I went to a coffee morning to raise funds for Oasis House (Did you know that Dementia UK have these lovely people called Admiral Nurses but Bedfordshire doesn’t have even one!) and then in the evening I went to a Quiz Night with Mum, Dad, my cousin and my Aunt and Uncle. Between us we were a good team – normally we play board games at Christmas and beat each other rather than being on the same team.
I christened my Kikki K this week at the Conference – was good for taking notes. I started a new Volume for my Bullet Journal – I got the wrong size Leuchtturm so need to see how long it lasts me. I keep looking at the lovely notebooks and fountain pens on Goulet Pens (Although they are US based so will need to check postage before ordering from them)
