It’s the first week of the holidays, and I’d be lying if I said the kids had totally driven me mad, because they’ve hardly been here. It just fell that I had stuff to do this week so the boys have been at Mad Science camp for two days, and right now they’re currently trashing my friends house. She’s a very good friend.
But having a week with only one day to lie in has made me appreciate how much we all need it, so I’m very much looking forward to spending time with them over the next few days. I bet this time next week I’m not quite so loving.
I turned to twitter the other day for my next read, and got some great suggestions – all of which are now on my holiday reading list. However I opted for Lie With Me by Sabine Durrant. Currently I’m loving it, although I always find it strange that I dislike the leading character, which I do right now!
On Sunday we went camping. Have I mentioned I hate camping (check over on instagram before you answer that). But it was lovely in the evening to see the boys frolic around outside the tent and play together like best friends.
When we got back to civilisation we started watching BOSCH on Amazon Prime. It’s in the same league as 24. AWFUL but I can’t help but LOVE it.
Progress!! I’m working on a new project – which isn’t Dottie related I’m afraid – and it’s got me buzzing. I’m so excited about it, and hope to share it with you all in the a few months…
I might have hated camping, but I loved the excuse to wear my new leopard print joggers. I KNOW not to everyone’s taste, but they are cosy and lovely!
Apart from somebody humming at 5.30am while I was camping (GRR) I’ve been listening to Oh Dear Silvia by Dawn French. It’s the first Dawn French book I’ve read/listened too, and it’s not at all what I expected…but that’s not a bad thing! I also love how they’ve done the audiobook, it’s almost like a radio play than somebody just reading a story.
On Friday 1st July I launched – along with my two amazing friends Kate and Charlotte THE TAKE. A site for women by women. Please check it out and let me know what you think. There is also the opportunity to submit your own posts and we’ve already had some amazing ones and that makes me happy.
