Between illness, work, and my social life, I’ve had no time to write. It’s not until I stopped writing my weekly blog posts I realised how much I have missed it! But don’t worry, I’m hoping it won’t happen again (and I even bought myself a new planner just to ensure I always make time to be creative!!).
I just finished Bone China by Laura Purcell…and was unfortunately disappointed by it.
I can’t fault Purcell’s great writing, but the timeline of it didn’t flow as seamlessly as The Corset. The book was split into different parts and some of it was set 40 years ago, and it just made the storyline a little more confusing than it needed to be. I’m not a lover of a story jumping back and forth between characters or timelines, and this story reminded me of why I dislike it so much 🙈 However, I just bought The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell so I haven’t given up on her!
I have a confession to make…I don’t like/watch TV that much…
Because when I do, I end up binge watching, like I have done with the Netflix series, Chesapeake Shores.
So it’s incredibly cheesy, yet beautiful and poetic, and it’s so scenic. I wanted an easy watch and that is exactly what I got. But it also encouraged me to realise that life is more important than rushing around, overthinking and worrying, but actually to take it slow, be prepared, but follow your dreams. A lovely sentiment I think.
It was also a dream come true to see Christina Aguilera in concert!! She merged Burlesque with Moulin Rouge which was EPIC, and sang every song so beautifully and from the heart. I do wish there wasn’t as many costume changes though; it kind of broke the flow of the show up if you get me?
Excitingly, my birthday is on Saturday, and I’m off shopping in London for the day. My friends and I will be going to Cecil Court and if you haven’t heard of Cecil Court, it’s supposedly the ‘Diagon Alley’ for booklovers. If you click on the link, it’ll take you to a page about it. It’s basically a place with lots of antique and secondhand bookshops!! I’ve always wanted to go so I’m super excited and I’l post pics on another blog post once I’ve visited so you can all enjoy it with me.
I hope you enjoy your week, and I’m going to leave you with a very motivational quote until next time 😍
