Hello hello! Another Friday, another fess-up! And this week really has the feel of a naughty confession because I hardly did anything at all. I caught a ride with my in-laws up to Scotland and, while I may have missed the sunny weather down South, I finally managed to switch off for a few days.
So not much to report on my end. Hope you’ve had a good week!
This week I have been mostly… playing with rough collie puppies in Liverpool, searching the country for standard poodle puppies, sleeping in, listening to the lambs baa-ing across the river, messing around on the blog, and doing a bit more soul searching.
That all doesn’t sound like much, so here’s my trusty table which always makes my look busier than I am…
This week I have mostly been reading…
- Blogging the Farm: The New Rural Writers and their Urban Fans – I read this because a) the Worlds End Farm blog is my favourite blog on the internet, so the article really resonated with me; and b) I daydream about being one of these writers (like all the other readers, no doubt).
- Startups, This is How Design Works
- There is no such thing as work-life balance – 30 rules for building a business without losing your soul (from one of the co-founders of The Happy Startup School). This was good follow-up reading to my post When did starting up a business become the only acceptable reason to leave your job.
- My old council flat sold for half a million – this madness can’t end well – a good articulation of the reasons I don’t want to buy in London and why I went to take a look at this property in Fife instead… And, because it’s Scotland, the guy that showed us round was wearing a kilt, with his glasses in his sporran and a dagger in his sock and everything!
Have a great weekend!
