Week in a few words #2

Thoughtful gifts. • There are few things worth waiting in a virtual queue for four hours and ending up with more expensive tickets than intended, but I'm hoping Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be. Only 291 days to wait. • Yet another new bookshelf. Oh dear. • Endless thank yous for your kind, kind words earlier in the week. • Making a promise to myself that, from now on, I'm going to try harder. At everything. Especially the things that are deeply important to me. I've been absent from my own life for much too long. • Laughing at ourselves after shouting out wrong answers whilst watching University Challenge. • And, of course, Adele's new song. Her music has been a fixture in my life since 19 in 2008 and I think her words will always be important to me.


  1. Carl and I always watch University challenge even though on average we get one question right! It is such a laugh though! xx


  2. Wow, you got tickets for the Cursed Child? I think if I had been in England I would have queued for four hours aswell! I so hope it's released in some form so people who can't go see it can experience it in some form!

  3. I'm in love with Adele's new song, it's beautiful! x


  4. I love this! Well done on getting tickets (but then, you definitely deserve them being a huge fan and all!). Adele is incredible, I agree whole heartedly xx

  8. I'm so glad you got Cursed Child tickets! I did too! I was so shocked that I was only 507th in the queue and only had to wait ten minutes (I think everyone on Twitter wanted to kill me) I could only afford the £20 tickets so I'll be sitting behind a pillar or something but it'll still be amazing!
    Glad that you're feeling a little better :) I feel the same, as if I've not been participating in my own life. I think it's probably time to take charge.

  9. Oh, Cursed Child! I am so happy for you :) I can't wait to hear all about it as I don't have tickets! So, so exciting! <3 xxx

  10. I remember buying 19 when it was first released, long before it became popular and just loving every track! I really admire Adele, not only is she mega talented, she seems so down to earth.

  11. Adele's words mean a lot to me and the new song doesn't disappoint.

  12. Your words are always so poignant. Don't be absent from your own life. That really says a lot!
