Hello, hello! I think this is the first week I have felt properly autumnal. The winter wardrobe came down from the loft, I had my first hot chocolate of the year and I have had the heating on FULL blast. I’ve also gotten back into reading books, actual books, for the first time in what seems like a bloody lifetime (all the book recommendations are welcome!).
There are also some wonderful posts from the internet that I have been enjoying lately including…
I’ve been learning to drive on-and-off over the past year, so this post by Dannielle from While I’m Young really resonated with me. Driving is my Everest too and while I haven’t even taken a test yet, I know that it will take me a good few attempts – I don’t know how I’ll cope with the nerves!
I’ve spoken about being chronically ill before and the impacts it has, so I found myself nodding along to this post by Katie on the lessons she has learnt from being chronically ill.
I loved Emma from Lime After Limes post, detailing the 5 things she’ll never be – I always find myself wishing I had this quality over that quality, but Emma is excellent and pointing out that the qualities about ourselves we aren’t too fond of, are actually pretty great at making us who we are.
I am known to over-do it and burn the candle at both ends, but my health requires me to take a reluctant step back. I’ve been told to adopt a slower pace of life, so Natalie’s post on what slow-living means to her is something that I think I could embrace.
I loved reading this beautifully written piece by Rosie about the small things in life that bring us joy.
And speaking of which, this post by Amy on the importance of the unimportant echoes that sentiment exactly.
