I got sent this book in the post the other day by my darling pappy and haven’t been able to put it down. Everyone who has ever become angry, frustrated or fed up with elderly neighbours/friends/relatives should read this beautiful book. I especially loved this analogy about marriage 💙
In other news I have recently taken to walking for an hour or so in the evenings before it gets dark in order to relax my chaotic brain. I listen to Harry Potter and often just get lost in suburbia. This evening was an absolute rainbow of hydrangeas combined with the start of the Tri-wizard tournament. Lovely.
The summer holidays are nearly upon us and sport is literally happening everywhere. This is great for Sam and he gets to watch loads as part of his job. He has been enjoying the football, tennis and the cycling in particular. Now I happen to know that witnessing the Tour de France live is on a certain husband’s bucket list and this year I also happen to know that Yorkshire are hosting 3 days of it.
So today we took a train to Huddersfield, enjoyed beers in front of the big screen and then stood at the barrier to cheer the cyclists on. It. Was. Awesome. I have a special souvenir planned too - watch this space!
Not sure this song truly represents positive body image when it features lines about ‘skinny bitches.’ Surely true positivity is celebrating all body types rather than saying “I’m curvy and THAT’S better.”
As a curvy lady I like the idea of this song so much but it doesn’t sit right…
Today in the supermarket a lady was giving out free samples of pulled pork. I don’t eat it but I said I’d like one for my husband. Amazingly she foil-wrapped it and I presented it to Sam when I got home :) Verdict: weird but delicious.
