Halfway through the week you guys! Friday will be here before we know it!
Here are three things I have been loving recently, and one that I haven’t loved at all
Firstly, my new office mug that my mum painted for me – isn’t it really cute? It is not supposed to be me, but it does have a bit of a resemblance I’d say – minus the glasses. My mums hobby is painting porcelain, and she loves the fact that people use the things she makes, so this is a win win for both of us. I get a lovely mug for work, and she gets to make things!
Secondly, my microfiber towel. – Yes you read it right I am raving about a towel! Since January I have been going to the gym 4 times a week. Although don’t look too impressed because most of the time I spend hiding in the back of the room pretending to do the plank with a pained expression and just cursing the world and going “whyyyyyyyyyyy??” for about 30 minutes, but you know, at least I am in the gym right? Anyways, getting this microfiber towel from Amazon was a godsend, because it literally dries itself as it dries so after you’re showered and ready you are left with a dry towel that you can fold away into a tiny pouch, and you don’t have a lung a wet bathroom towel back and forth to your house every day! Amazeballs!

Thirdly, this blog – I just discovered it this week. – Do you like baking? Check! Do you like books? You bet ya! Kate from The Little Library Cafe gives you a new recipe inspired by a book every week and to me that is just the perfect combination. What about these Turkish delights, inspired by the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe? Certainly something I want to try to make! Why don’t you head over and have a browse and see if she has baked your favourite book yet?
Now, one thing I have not been liking lately, is the combination of snow and public transport. Today for example, I was chairing a couple of meetings at work, and wanted to get in early to get my breakfast and other stuff sorted before.
Right on cue, we got a couple of cm’s snow and the buses just draw to a standstill! I waited out in the cold for about 40 minutes before the bus showed up, and by that time of course we got stuck in traffic, and the end result is I was late in to work, and had to panic eat an apple for the 5 minutes between meetings that I had this morning. This is not something I do well. Panic-eating means lack of chewing which seriously increases my risk of choking. Seriously snow and bus – I could have died! Please do better next time!
