1// Finishing War and Peace if you follow me on twitter or instagram you would have seen my excitement this week when I finally finished War and Peace. It has been an emotional journey (god damn Tolstoy, why do you kill everyone off?!), but I'm amazing and pleased with how much I loved it. I'll certainly re-read it in a few years time and there are a number of quotes I'm going to keep handy for when a low moment threatens.
2// Florence's new album Florence and the Machine released a new album this week and it has been pretty much all I've listened to. I don't think it compares to Ceremonials, but I never can resist her voice.
3// Holiday planning as of today it's less than a week until my sister and I jet off on our trip, so I've been busy planning our itinerary and booking various tours and activities. Planning helps me deal with the anxiety of being in an unknown place, but it also helps ramp up the excitement. It's safe to say I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve right now.
4// Sunny days the weather this week has been an absolute dream. A bit of sun makes a huge difference to my mood, as I'm sure it does for most, so it has been very uplifting to wake up to a beautiful sunrise most mornings.
5// A new desk I had an early birthday present from M this week when an Ikea parcel turned up in the post. It turned out to be the Micke desk in white which I've been lusting after for the longest time. We put it together yesterday (using a swiss army knife and a wrench instead of a hammer - I'm nothing if not resourceful) and I already just know it's going to be the perfect spot for writing and being creative.
