I didn't mention it in my resolutions post, but brushing away the cobwebs here and trying to post a little more often than I have been was one of my goals for January. Needless to say, that went out of the window almost as quickly as a slice of cake went in my mouth after I declared that I was cutting down on sugar. I never like to post for the sake of posting but the couple of days' break I decided to give myself somehow ended up becoming two weeks. Here's what I've been up to since I last checked in here.
Reading || Wool by Hugh Howey. I wasn't sure at first, but I'm really starting to fall for it. Also the beautiful book in the photo above - it's magical.
Feeling || Tired. I started a new job at the start of January and I'm ten days into a really intense six week training programme which is currently taking up most of my free time. I thought my revising for tests days were well behind me, but so far I'm really enjoying being back in the classroom.
Exploring || London. It was Tom's birthday on Wednesday and I booked us in to visit the Germany: Memories of a Nation exhibition at The British Museum. We both really enjoyed it but felt a little foolish that we'd never visited before.
Planning || Summer holidays. I love cold weather, but after Christmas I always find myself wishing summer would hurry up and start making itself known. As Tom is teaching now we have to utilise half term as much as possible and I want to get away as much as possible in July and August. So far we're thinking of a trip around Cambodia and going to Sziget Festival in Budapest with friends, and I'm getting so excited!
Listening to || A lot of Death Cab for Cutie. Needless to say, I’m very excited about the new album in March.
Eating || Far too much birthday cake. If such a thing is possible.
Burning || Yankee Candles. I opened fourteen (!) of them on Christmas Day and lighting them makes me feel like I'm extending the festive cheer for a little while longer. I think I've found a new favourite in Sugared Apple.
Watching || The beautiful sunrise and sunset over Manchester. Working on the 15th floor has its advantages and *sometimes* the early mornings and late evenings are worth it when the sky lights up in sherbet pinks and oranges.
Spending || Too much money in Foyles. Seriously, who needs Topshop when you have that place?!
So, tell me about your week!
