Sunday Round-up

From here

This week I have been:

Listening to: London Grammar (you're all going to be shocked any Sunday I don't include them in my round-up now aren't you?!), Bastille, the Mumford&Sons/Laura Marling collaboration with the Dharohar Project, Daughter - all the good'uns.

Fascinated by: this story of a boy who paid 4p for a £600 supermarket shop and donated it all to charity. What incredible initiative shown by somebody so young. Be active!

Enamoured of: the Educating Yorkshire Christmas Special. The story of Musharaf and Mr Burton makes me cry every time (5:41 onwards).

Admiring: Malala Yousafzai's UN speech. Oh to be that articulate.

Training: my kitten. He passed level 1 of Beeta's Bootcamp this morning and now holds the title for Master Hunter of 2013. I shook his paw to congratulate him and he has been celebrating this afternoon by skating in the sink, eating lamb and sleeping by the radiator.

Completing: law exams.

Taking: a rest from law and scrap-booking whilst listening to inspiring women on Youtube

Watching: "Celeste and Jesse Forever" on Netflix. I hadn't watched a film in a little while so treated myself on Friday night with a full two hours wrapped up in a blanket on the sofa with this film. It was better than I thought it was going to be. A half-refreshing story at least.

Dreaming of: Paris.

Pin It Now!

  3. That's such a cosy little photo. The tartan blanket is lovely. I've also been dreaming about Paris - I even asked my husband if we could go on a quick spontaneous trip there now we're off work for xmas, but he said no. Ba-humbug!! He did say we can go in the spring though - there's nothing more beautiful than Paris in the springtime.

  4. A little late on this post (catching up on all your posts in my Bloglovin' feed since following). Love London Grammar, Daughter and Bastille! Will have to check out that Mumford and Sons/Laura Marling collab. And your kitten sounds too cute! :D

  5. I was quite taken with the story about the 4p shop. I've been keeping an eye out for vouchers and deals ever since. I love the sound of your kitten training bootcamp--adorable!
