Love The Little Things - 14th November


Here are some of the little things from this week.

Read | I'm still trying to finish the book group read, 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks' by Rebecca Skloot.  As a bit of light reading I've caught up on some blog reading; I've just read Ladkyis' blog, Ramblings of a Little Old Lady, from start to finish - she is a brilliant storyteller and writer - laugh out loud stuff!
Watched | Too much TV again, mostly Lewis, Missing and I've started watching Intruders on iPlayer.  I watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the first time, a pleasant gentle comedy which I enjoyed.

The best part of the week was on Monday night when I went to see the comedian, David Mitchell (of Peep Show fame), who is currently on tour promoting his new book.  I love his sense of humour and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Heard | I haven't been listening to much at all this week but I did make time for this recording of Lauren Marie Presley (distant relative of Elvis Presley) which I found via a news article.  I'm not a great fan of Elvis' music but I do like her style and will look out for more in the future.

Made | Absolutely nothing this week!

Worn | I sorted out all my clothes, getting rid of the things that were too big following the weight loss and finding other items of clothing that I hadn't unpacked since I moved in last year.  They weren't unpacked because they were too small but .... {drum roll} ... they now fit!  It's like having a whole new wardrobe of clothes!
And Lastly ... I'm gradually settling in to my autumn/winter routine when there's less rushing about than in spring and summer, although December will be rather manic with all the band commitments.  I have time to take stock and enjoy the simple things in life ... candlelight ... home made curries shared with friends ... snuggling up on the sofa under a comfort blanket ... refreshing walks on cold mornings and then a steaming hot cup of coffee to warm up when I get home ... that feeling when it's blowing a storm outside but I'm warm and safe inside ... rainy days when there's no guilt about staying in and reading!


  1. Well done on your weight loss Eileen.

  2. Huge congrats on your weightloss, that is awesome!

  3. I really like David Mitchell, would love to go and see him - he has such a dry sense of humour and Peep Show was one of my favourites when it was on TV.
    Well done with your weight loss! xx
