Happy Friday! This week I’m joining in with But Why Mummy, Why? and her weekly #LittleLoves linky. It’s a great way to sum up the week just gone and a wonderful rabbit hole reading everybody else’s posts too. Come and join me!
The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie. SO GOOD. It’s fantasy and gritty and funny and bloody brilliant. Every character is fantastic and I find that I look forward to the commute into work just so I can read it. Who needs Game of Thrones?
All the Glastonbury coverage! The BBC coverage has been amazing again with recording so much from the festival, it’s been the soundtrack of this week. Highlights for me are The Fall, FFS, Leon Bridges, Run the Jewels and Lionel, obviously. Kanye was a bit crap though, wasn’t he?
A bit of a cheat, as this is from last week, but I can’t resist showing off my amazing (if I do say so myself) vintage cat skirt that I wore to the House of Mamas launch.
This episode of Radio 4’s The Food Programme which follows the working day of the catering department of the House of Commons. It’s fascinating stuff and good to hear a few old colleagues are still in the kitchens from when I was a chef there (Butch!)
We have a new sewing machine! It’s a fancy one too, we’ve been saving up for it for about two years now. I finished my first project this week, a dress for Betsy. I won’t reveal all yet as I want that to be a separate post.
