This week I have been reading The Friend by Teresa Driscoll and managed to finish it by Wednesday. It took me a week to read and I have really enjoyed not only the book but generally getting back into reading in general! I have also been reading Creating A Brand Identity by Catharine Slade-Brooking which is a really interesting read for anyone who wants to create their own brand identity. I have, so far, only read the first chapter but I have gained so much from it and have so many things to think about!
This week I watched Sextuplets on Netflix which I really enjoyed! It is a film about a man who decides to trace his birth mother and in doing so, discovers that he is part of a group of sextuplets. The film was really funny and worth a watch!
- Listening to
This week I have been listening to a New Age music CD called Stonehenge by Runestone. I have had this CD for years, previously owning the tape which I wore out! I find that this CD is really relaxing and the music is perfect for background music when working, eating or relaxing. I have been lighting incense and just sitting, practising mindfulness meditation which has been lovely.
It has been a week for comfort eating, though it has been too warm for jacket potatoes and hot food so I have been tucking into Marmite sandwiches which have reminded me of being little, packed lunches and school trips.
This week I have been drinking a lot of water. I have also been enjoying freshly brewed coffe, Hot Lava Java, in work thanks to my Bodum Travel Press. I use the Travel Press for both loose tea and for ground coffee, depending on which I fancy, I add a spoon of either to the mug and put the mug back together, then in the afternoon I will fill it with hot water and let it work its magic before enjoying a hot tea or coffee!
This last week I have been working on my blog schedule for next year. I have a few things that I want to add in as well as changing a few things around so I wanted to have a play around with the schedule in advance so I can move things around and get things how I want before we hit 2020! I’m pretty pleased with how it’s turning out though I have a long way to go before I’m totally happy with it! I have also been making progress on my project and, with a few more tweaks it should be ready to launch soon, I am thinking that September may be better to launch though rather than next week!
I’ve been feeling pretty ok this week, aside from feeling a bit isolated in work though by the end of the week I was feeling a bit better. One positive of it all is that I have got all my work done and my desk cleared each day which has been a good feeling! The other positive to come from it all is that I have taken that motivation from completing my work, bought it home and been able to continue with working on my own projects, and am even more determined than before to get my projects working to the best they can.
How has your week been? What have you been up to? I’d love to hear in the comments!
