:: What I’m making
First I started with this, but that’s still not done because then I started this:
Which is growing into this:
:: Listening to
Moderat’s debut from their long awaited new album: Reminder so so good – looking forward to seeing them in April! Woo!
Lewis Howes podcast with Esther Perel ‘on sexual desire and successful relationships in the modern world’, bit of a switch up from my usual podcasts (!) but really interesting. She talks a lot about how so much has changed in the last 60 years. I’d never heard of her before but her TED talk has had 7.5 MILLION views!
Robert M. Drake’s ‘A Brilliant Madness’ – do you follow him on instagram? (@rmdrake) I love it, happy mail. I’ve got a teenage crush love for his writing.
Last week I watched the whole of season 1 Friends. I’m about halfway through Season 2. What is the point in watching anything else? I just watched the one about lobsters where Ross got changed to go to Rachel’s prom, reliving all the storylines is joyful.
:: Making me happy this week
- My nana moved to a care home this week. After reading ‘Being Mortal‘ I was a bit nervous about what it would be like. I took Ruby there today and she said it reminded her of the hotel we stayed at in Disneyland. There are dogs there too. I think that basically sums it up. All the great things Gawande picked up on how elderly care can be good are in place there. A big relief and comfort for everybody including nana.
- I have run 100km so far this year in my 1000km in 2016 challenge!
