The Little Things

Read | I'm reading Remember Me This Way by Sabine Durrant.  I've only read the first three chapters, but so far so good.
 
Watched | I went to see Spotlight last night.  It's the true story of how the massive scandal of child abuse within the Catholic Church in Boston was investigated and revealed by the Boston Globe newspaper. It's an excellent film and I'd recommend seeing it.  The subject matter is obviously harrowing but it is handled well in the film, and whilst there are a few verbal descriptions of the abuse it is not actually acted out in detail on the screen, which was a relief.
 
Heard | Quite a lot of podcasts reporting on the latest happenings in the Adnan Syed case.
 
Made | I made bread on Monday, pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, tomato soup on Wednesday and a vegetable curry on Thursday. 
 
Worn | The gloves and scarf have come out again, now that it has turned colder.
 
And Lastly ... This is what I'm doing for Lent this year ...
 
 
I found it on the Dorothy House Facebook page.  Dorothy House is the local hospice and I'll be donating the forty items to one of their charity shops. 

Thanks to Morgana for organising this weekly link up.

  4. Love that idea Eileen - I will start today, not just clothes though, I shall make a start on my shoe collection, especially those I no longer wear. I shall keep a written list - it encourages me to complete the project.

  5. What a great idea Eileen. You have got me thinking now - I could really do with sorting out my clothes, a lot of them are too big for me now and I have been meaning to have a sort out. What better reason to do just that. xx

  6. What a great idea. I had not heard about it. I get why it's 40 items, but gosh that's a lot. Well done you

  7. That's a great idea for Lent - I'm not a fan of giving things up as other people don't really benefit so this is brilliant.

  8. Eileen that is such an excellent idea for Lent. We had been discussing what to give up for Lent & nothing was really resonating - this does. Thanks for the book recommendation. Hope you have a good weekend.

  15. The forty days donating idea is a very good one, even if you don't find forty things donating anything will help won't it. Glad you had a good week, your cooking sounds very tasty indeed! Thank you for joining Five On Friday, Happy Valentines! xx
