I’m not doing so well at blogging regularly. It’s so odd. I thought finishing uni until October would give me so much more time to blog, when the reality is I was blogging a lot more when I was studying. That’s the reality of procrastination. Now I’m throwing myself into home projects and have a few too many to-do lists lying around.
Mr J arrived home with the latest Jack Reacher. I have hope that as the book is a collection of short stories I might be able to find time to read. It still feels like I’m writing too many papers, reading too many newspaper articles, and not finding enough time to escape from the real world to regroup.
Pretty much like reading, I’ve missed every opportunity to get to the theatre. And I’m feeling it. I am however completely transfixed with BBC1’s Broken. It’s emotional, real and heartbreaking. Whilst at the same time reflecting reality enough to have hope.
I am loving Spotify more than ever this week. It’s been brought home more than ever that good music creates the best possible mood, and watching Glastonbury over the weekend created a bubble of happiness.
This week I’ve been revisiting favourite music and rediscovering new. I’ve loved a bit of The Fratellis whilst getting ready in the morning, rediscovering By The Way as I walk, and I’m loving London Grammar’s new album whilst I work. Life feels better when you have good music in your ear.
The boys bedroom is coming together, and I absolutely love it. It’s the compromise of Star Wars and life beyond their phases. I’m currently adding the solar system to the ceiling and, whilst we’re not long in, musical beds feels like a thing of the past already.
Admittedly, not me. This week the children have climbed back into their wetsuits so the summer really has arrived. Well, in Wales at least, I spent this week walking around London in Birkenstocks, my feet were sodden.
London this week has been kind. More than sitting in the office, I was lucky enough to be invited an event at Battersea Power Station. Entitled Inspiring Change it did that. Whilst work related, it transcends to life, to see how much people can impact the future and fortune of others. And yes, fortune is what ever it means to you – of hope, happiness, fulfilment, and to another extent acceptance without question.
Seeing London, seeing life from a different perspective gives so much. Whilst the week has been far from straightforward, there’s still that bubble gurgling near the surface, that life can be good, if we care enough.
