Something for the weekend No. 28

How has your week been?
Here in Malta it feels like it suddenly went from spring-y to summer.

It would also be amiss of me if I failed to mention that I’m planning a Eurovision Song Contest party for tomorrow night.  Bring on the cheese! 


This is A LOT of tv-watching for me in one week!

I’m a bit book promiscuous this week and have been dipping in and out of the letter of ancient philosopher Seneca, DH Lawrence: Sons and Lovers and Clarissa Pinkola Estes: Women Who Run with the Wolves (one I’ve read and re-read countless times.)  


Learning + Discovering 


This one personality trait can predict whether you’re likely to walk around your house naked (I must absolutely have this, since I think I’m naked or partially clothed at least 50% of the time I’m at home)
