I’ve stolen the title of this post from the title of another article which was brought to my attention by Kate and I couldn’t help but write about it because it rang every bell in my head and some outside it.
We’re trying in vain to donate some of Jessamy’s old toys to Lottie at the moment. Jessamy is not impressed but she has to learn to share. Sharing is not her strong point. However we have managed to prise one toy from her grips with some success.
I changed my little button thing because I was bored – do you like it? It’s got carrots on it and carrots are healthy therefore tenuous weight watching link is complete. If you think it’s shit that’s fine too, I like it. Anyway, that fat thing.
I have developed a bit of an obsession. I have talked about babywearing before but I wasn’t aware exactly how obsessive it can become. There are groups on Facebook and on the forum Natural Mamas where you can buy, sell, trade and even win different baby carriers and in the last month I’ve bought two, traded one and sold three. Now I think I have exactly what I need.
I’m not entirely convinced what I should write for this one, I mean, I’ve read lots of books, I can’t even list them all. What books should I list for this? I genuinely don’t know. Books I’ve read in 2013? There’s 70-odd of them. Books I read last year? Over 100.
There’s one place Jess has been getting A LOT of her clothes from recently and as we always get such lovely comments about them I thought I’d post a little blog post to show them off some more. The place I’m talking about is KyNa Boutique, run by the awesome Jenny and the clothes are just AMAZING. I can’t say no, I have no self-control!
Lots of books read! I thought it was a slow reading week but I seemed to end on an unexpected high. I blame Emma from Book Angel Booktopia for it all and my amazing bundle of booksies :D:
That was on top of the three she’d already sent me so YAY lots of book love. I also had a Book People order come in this week which included:
Have you read any of these? Any thoughts? I don’t know where I’ll start or when I’ll get to them. Aside from that I’ve been getting on with my Summer Challenge.
This book came in my last random Amazon order because I have no self-control. It’s one of those I’m not sure why I picked but I found it fascinating nonetheless. It’s described as:
Part Secret History, part Brideshead Revisited for the 21st century, The Bellwether Revivals is a page-turning, romantic, eerie tale of genius and, possibly, madness; a stunning debut for fans of Sarah Waters, Donna Tartt, and Lauren Goff.
I must confess I have read neither Secret History or Brideshead Revisited and nothing by Waters or Goff (although I’m 90% they mean Groff) either. I shall aim to rectify this immediately as The Bellwether Revivals was gooood.
I love Dickens, I’ve said this again and again but I am once more a Dickens fan disappointed. A Tale of Two Cities has sat on one of my bookshelves in abridged or unabridged form for at least 15 years. I have read the beginning and loved it repeatedly and then this week, I went on.
