13th, Polka Dots & Tea #LittleLoves10:48
The last two weeks have been a bit of a blur, and to be honest a little bit rubbish. I've been really busy and stressed at work, and then at home all three of us came down with a horrible sickness bug. I had to cancel so many fun plans, and to be honest have just been feeling a little sorry for myself so I apologise if I've been a bit woe is me on social media!
Over the past week or so I've been really getting back into reading, and I finished The Time Traveler's Wife in just two days. I absolutely loved it, and it seems like so many other people do too, because when I posted this picture on Instagram I had so many people tell me that it is one of their favourites. By finishing this I finally hit my target of 26 books for the year, and with a couple of months left until 2017 I'm going to see if I can push myself to hit 40...!!
This week Jono and I watched the new documentary 13th on Netflix, and if you haven't seen it yet, please go and watch it. Focusing on racial inequality and mass incarceration in the US, this documentary takes you from slavery all the way through to Trump. Powerful, heartbreaking, eye opening and necessary are just a handful of words I would use to describe this timely documentary, and honestly after it finished I just sat and cried. It is a must see.
Lots of cups of tea!
This has been my survival method of choice, and nothing else has said comfort to me the way a warm cup of tea has. Sadly I am out of milk this morning, and as far as I'm aware there's not yet a delivery service that just brings essentials like bread and milk. This definitely should be made a thing.
A new polka dot dress, and lots of bright lippy! After being ill last weekend, meaning I spent days in pjs and not even brushing my hair, I was so ready to dress up a little bit.
This week I've been listening to mine and Jono's song - Bloom by The Paper Kites. It is so beautiful, and when I can't sleep I like to listen to it on repeat.
I am absolutely beyond excited that tomorrow I will be heading to the lovely Jade from Raising the Rings' wedding! She is an absolute rock in my life, and I am so happy that I will be there to watch her become a wife! Blogging is a funny old thing, where people you meet through the internet can become your closest friends, and I am so lucky to have found a wonderful group of mamas who just get me, and are there to pick me up when I fall.
