This week I am experiencing an utter lack of ability to put words and pictures together in the form of a cohesive blog post. I have half-written a host of treatises on all sorts of subjects, none of which have fired my imagination enough to finish. When I have been relatively interested in the subject matter, I have been entirely incapable of taking a photograph to illustrate my topic.

So now it is Friday afternoon and it strikes me that what is needed is a cool beverage (mine is of the non-alcoholic variety) and some sausages.

Here is what I have been doing whilst I haven’t been writing for my blog:

  • Reading Gretchen Rubin’s “The Happiness Project” (courtesy of my daughter, a big Grechen Rubin fan)
  • Playing with my grandson
  • Swimming (my Friday morning treat with my sister)
  • Knitting (my navy sleeveless sweater)
  • Watching old episodes of “Death in Paradise” (courtesy of Britbox)
  • Ordering wool for future knitting projects
  • Waiting for the arrival of some stationery to write about
  • Listening to Chris Boucher’s “A Walk in the Dark” (courtesy of BBC Sounds)
  • Wondering if my knees will make it through a 10-minute Yoga routine
  • Keeping an eye on the vintage magazine website in case the Vogue Health and Beauty issue I want should happen to appear

I hope your week has been more productive than mine.

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Sounds like a pretty good week to me. We can put too much pressure on ourselves to accomplish things when in fact spending some quality time with other people is what is needed.

    1. You’re quite right, and living alone does make me value the time I spend with my friends and family. I think I will spend some time this weekend and plan a short activity to do outside the flat each day next week, see if that opens my mind up a bit.

    1. Excellent! I enjoy Becks’ Blue as well as the Erdinger. Funnily, though, I have never really liked standard beers or lagers although I have nothing against drinking alcohol – love a nice cider and have a long and happy history with Southern Comfort.
