Se7en’s Fabulous Fun Post… #314

May 2nd, 2016 · 4 Comments

And just like that the weather changed, forget about a nip in the air it has been downright cold. The days are warm enough, but I have noticed piles of books gathering in certain places around the house, waiting for the sun to reach them for a good read. We are definitely entering the season of searching for a sunny spot.

  9. A Blast From the Past:


The Book of the Week…

The Crossroads of Should and Must: I’ve had this book on my wishlist for ages and ages and then last week I was gifted a voucher and grabbed it. It was nothing like I expected, it was everything that I needed. Pure fun and absolutely no bossing around at all. It is a mini break, a holiday almost and the first step in the journey of doing things that you would rather be doing… I read it in a sitting and then when back and read it again, just in case I missed anything. I don’t know if this book will make you find your passion, but it will make you stop and take a good look at where you are standing right now. This book inspired me to think about the things I would like to do and then compare that with the things that I actually do… A huge part of the appeal of this book is the pure loveliness of watercolour inspiration and colourful lettering throughout it… it is a bit of a “jump in and explore” kind of a book. There are a couple of pure gems of inspiration in-between the covers… I think if you are in a bit of a meh place, then this book could well be the one to lift you up and get something done. I loved it, it is the sort of book that you buy and then realise your best friends all need to read it too…

That’s us… Hope you are enjoying this fabulous long weekend…

    Hope you keep finding the sunny spots! We’ve noticed a change here too – this weekend the blossom finally started coming out on our cherry and crab apple trees – feels like spring is just around the corner!

    Hay Zoe, your Spring has been slow to visit this year, that’s for sure. I shouldn’t be surprised that our wintry weather is quickly approaching… but it gets me every time!!! Hope you all have a great week!!!
