I think most of us could use a bit of cheerfulness right now. I tend to feel things pretty deeply, so am basically devastated right now, though this isn’t really the place to go into that. Suffice it to say I am an immigrant in the UK, so I’ll let you think about potential implications. There are still plenty of good things and happy things, and this is definitely the place to share some of those. I’m going to share some of mine, but please do share yours in the comment, or write your own post & share a link.
- Tomorrow I’m going to Kelmscott Manor, summer home of William Morris, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and many other leaders of the Arts & Crafts/Pre-Raphaelite movement. I’ve always wanted to go, but as I don’t drive it’s a bit complicated to get there. Happily I have a willing friend.
- I have wonderful colleagues, who came over and gave me a hug when I started crying at work this morning. I had a 1-2-1 with my manager which basically turned into a therapeutic rant. Unprofessional, maybe, but I did feel slightly better afterwards.One of said colleagues is marrying her long-term partner next Saturday. She is wonderful, and I’m so happy that I will get to share their joy.
- A friend just came back from New York, and brought me this awesome tote bag & colouring book as a thank you for looking after her cats while she was away. I was just grateful for the cat cuddles, to be honest, but I won’t complain. 🙂
- Glastonbury coverage has started. I’m not sure I would actually want to go to Glasto because of how massive it is, but I do love live music so I really enjoy getting to see what bands are on.
- We’re getting a cat on Sunday! I always had a minimum of two cats growing up, so I am very much a cat person. I’ve really missed having them since I moved to the UK and started renting. But now that we are lucky enough to have our own home, there’s no reason we can’t! This is Pippa, and we can’t wait to bring her home and discover more about her personality.
