Pasta | Theo Randall
post image

Not to get anyone too excited but this very evening I shall be making spaghetti bolognese except rather than spaghetti, I will be having this spooky pasta with it!!

@StayCurious Do I get points for this in a spooky craft sense in that I am making the bolognese or is that pushing it?😂

#Scarathlon #TeamMonsterMash

monalyisha If I were in charge of point totals, I‘d definitely give it to you. 😉 2h

Story 2 - Mesmerised By You

This one was so good! I loved the magic and spells involved and the attraction between the 2 mains for once didn't make me cringe😂 CRIKEY did it get spicy though; heads up about that

Excited to start Story 3 tonight! This book is so good for word search words too😁

First short story: Charmed By You - Kate Angell

This one was cringe in so many ways and v saucy by the end especially but overall I liked it!😂 The descriptions of all the Halloween decorations and the magic crystal ball were real highlights✨️

Pretty good! A super quick read that covered a lot of ground. Loved the different styles - from what was essentially a poem from the mermaid to David's journal entries. I feel like this is destined to be a film one day

And that's my second book finished for this month as parr of #BFC22! 1 more and I've met my reading goal😁 @wanderinglynn

The dark evenings/nights in England have very much crept up on me and caught me by surprise, and I can't say I'm disappointed about it🌙 It's pitch black right now and I can't see a thing out of the train windows - makes the whole thing feel very atmospheric and me feel even more excited for Scarathlon🎃

I liked this! It's not super plot-driven and I thought it might be a bit too slow-paced for me at first...but then I started to really appreciate it for that and got sucked in. It's left me with a lot to think about

(Note that it's also pretty heavy at points if you're thinking about reading it)

Off to a great start with September #BFC22! Yesterday I completed my workout and got to page 250 of A Tale For The Time Being!

I have a fairly long train ride this evening so I plan to read more then and I'll fit my workout in on my lunch😊

- Finish A Tale For The Time Being and finish 2 more books

I genuinely think this is the only book on time management that I'll ever need to read; very glad I picked it up! Focuses on the freedom and meaning that comes from accepting that you could never get everything you wanted done

rockpools Huh. Interesting. I got a couple of copies of this for work a few months ago - and there‘s still a 4 month wait list on them. I might add myself to the end of the queue! 4mo
Moll @rockpools I'd recommend! I can see why it wouldn't be for everyone depending on how willing you are to get on board with the ideas in it, but definitely worth a try 4mo

#BFC2022 @wanderinglynn

April - very happy with the below😊 Super active, I hit my reading goal & Action For Happiness has been great:
- 4 yoga sessions
- 15 cardio pilates workouts
- An 11 mile walk
- 2 books read
- 21 Action for Happiness actions

May goals below😁

Moll I think I found my rhythm with workouts in April (took me an age to figure out a new rhythm in a post-lockdown world, but I got there)! Being specific about when I want to work out rather than saying 'just as much as possible' (although that's still ultimately the case) has been really helpful; I decide a week in advance and base it on what time I have left around the other things I have on that week🙌 A goal for May is to keep this up😁 5mo
Moll The same is the case with yoga😊 5mo
Moll I want to very much keep going with Action for Happiness - I'm keen to attend more of the webinars they run and I've joined a group to meet other people involved in it😁 5mo

It's tricky to put this one into words and do it justice; it was raw and vulnerable and genuinely quite hard to read at points - it had me in tears more than once. I learnt so much about Korean food and culture and identity along the way as well. Really very good

KristiAhlers I really connected with this book on so many levels as far as loss and grieving goes. This is one book I‘ve been recommending to everyone 5mo
Moll @KristiAhlers It really touched me also! 5mo

This was good🌟 I expected it to be a really light, fun rom com, and then there was a fair whack more depth - a lil bit like January starting out viewing life & love before realising it's all so much more complicated than that. I like that that realisation didn't devalue her writing/her belief in happy endings, or rather a happy for now. I felt like the pacing was slightly off sometimes but overall a good'un

3. Having my parents place to escape to in the countryside - prime reading spot

It's been a p exhausting week (a mix of great and not so fun) but I am HERE with my #BFC22 March review!

In March I read 3 books and started a 4th/5th, took the month off for the most part with yoga/Blogilates to allow my body to recover properly from Covid but got going again in the last week or so there & I've really enjoyed the Mindful March calendar😊

For April, my goal is to keep listening to my body and going with what it needs!😊
