Three things I’m loving this week

This first full week of January is always a struggle. It’s hard returning to early starts, routines and clock-watching after the lazy days of Christmas. It’s been a bit of slog, but not as bad as I thought it would be. Being busy again has really made me appreciate the simple pleasures of my day. They’re the little moments that sparkle and glow.

Bould Brothers coffee

Going out for coffee… I missed grown-up coffee shops during the school holidays. A little ambition I have for 2019 is to visit as many new coffee places as I can. This week I went to Bould Brothers on Round Church Street in Cambridge. It’s a really pretty little place that’s perfect for cold winter days. I took my flat white and sticky bun upstairs and enjoyed the view from the window.

Fresh blooms… Spring might be a long way off, but luckily there are plenty of pretty flowers in the shops. I bought a big bunch of tulips and hyacinths for my front room this week. They’re filling the gap left by the Christmas tree and feel so fresh and light.

Losing myself in a good box set… I’m now incapable of watching normal live TV. If I find something I like I just watch it every night until I’ve devoured it all. This week I tried You on Netflix. It’s quite compulsive in a love/hate kind of way. It certainly provided good escapism on gloomy January nights!

What have you been loving this week?

    Coffee too – I sat reading in a cafe this morning after school run and haircut.
    Reading – great book at the moment that I don’t want to put down.
    Easing myself into better food and exercise – a couple of short workouts and some inspiring podcasts.

      You’ve got it so right Anne! Little things make such a difference.
