It’s stating the obvious to say we spend far too much time in front of screens these days. I recently rediscovered the joy of good old paper and ink and have been dedicating time during early nights, lazy weekends, and dull train journeys to reading (although admittedly I’ve also downloaded some classic fiction to my new iPad).
On Friday I turn 27 and will be celebrating in Cornwall with the boy, so I thought it’d be fun to read a book by a Cornish author before we go. I just cracked the spine on “Rebecca” by Daphne du Maurier (of course the title makes my choice extra-appropriate) and though I often find myself disappointed by must-read books I’m absolutely besotted with this one. Have you read it? I just joined Goodreads so if you’re on there please come and befriend me!
I hope you all had fun weekends. I waved ‘bye to summer with a final outdoor drinking session, went to the Paralympic games (after obtaining last-minute tickets via a friend), and now it’s time for dinner with the boy’s family, plus a poke around their new house. Good times.
p.s. As you will hopefully have noticed I’ve given the blog a bit of a facelift, I do hope you like it!
