the elegant hedgehog...

To say I love books is an understatement.   When I have spare time, I usually devour them pretty quickly.  On our recent mini break, things were no different and I started and finished The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery during the course of the long weekend.  AM lent it to me after Jo gave it to her as a birthday gift.  Yay for sharing books!

Originally written in French (and thankfully translated into English so I could enjoy it!), this book is charming, beautifully written and delightful.  Bittersweet and brilliant, this has got to be one of my most favourite reads ever (big call I know).  I won't give you any plot summaries.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...
