I’ve always loved Fridays. From early morning there is a sense of joy at the impending weekend. By lunchtime you know the worst is behind you and by mid-afternoon you are really starting to unwind. Back when I had an office job, Friday was usually the only day when I could take my afternoon coffee break uninterrupted. I might even get to write a few personal emails or to catch up on social media. Finally a little “me” time.
In what I hope will become a regular feature, I’d like to share some of the more interesting blog posts, articles or books I come across during my weekly reading. Make yourself a cup of coffee, kick back and let the weekend begin!
- I very much enjoyed this article in The Guardian and this follow-up article from the head of the British Heart Foundation. These things are never simple.
- This week saw the launch of a new book by one of my favourite food bloggers, Sophie Hansen. The book itself looks absolutely beautiful, full of Sophie’s trademark country life & rustic food photography. I very much look forward to getting my hands on a copy.
- The Washington Post ran an article about a girl who had quit her job and was planning to travel the world exploring food from a farming perspective. Sounded a bit familiar!
- I finished this book, one of the most entertaining and interesting books I’ve encountered in quite a while. I got the audio version, read by Rayner himself in his inimitable style. I thought I would quarrel with some of his theories but it all made a remarkable amount of sense. Highly, highly recommended.
- I fell in love with these painted Easter Eggs. Painting eggs for Easter is very popular in Lithuania so I hope to be trying out some of these over the coming weeks. (I just need my little girlies to lay me an egg!)
