Welcome back to my weekly post that celebrates the little things making me happy this week!
- Last Sunday my gorgeous wee girl made potato bread (or fadge as we call it round these parts) all by herself. And it was delicious!
- On Friday I had a work meeting in the beautiful surroundings of the Strand at Lough Beg, made famous by Seamus Heaney’s wonderful poem. It’s a gorgeous spot and was good for the soul and frankly all meetings should be held here.
- I love ‘In Our Time’ presented by Melvyn Bragg on Radio 4 and this week the chat was about my favourite Shakespeare play – Macbeth
- I am loving this Carpenter’s cover by the amazing Bat For Lashes
- We took a trip to the Ulster Museum to see the Rembrandt etchings which have just gone on display. They are beautiful but tiny!
- The Chef Show is back for a new season on Netflix – yay!
- My very favourite bookstore, No Alibis, has a publishing arm called No Alibis Press and this week it was announced that they had received over £8,000 of funding from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland to help secure the publication of new titles , starting with Seed, by acclaimed Dublin-based writer Joanna Walsh. Good news for good people.
So, what in your life deserves some praise this week? Let me know in the comments!
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
