Something for the weekend

Really honoured to have an article in the spring issue of Somerset Life (with my name on the cover, no less — a first! My journalism tutors would be so proud :)

Mmmm… brocollini salad | a simple lunch | simple bircher muesli

It’s time to drop the apologies

Famous celebrities and their cameras

I can’t promise to do this every week, but I made another mixtape for you:

Opening. from Photobird on 8tracks.

In fact, I made two. If at any point this weekend you feel discouraged, down or plain bummed out, plug this mix in (download the 8 Tracks app) and go for a fast 20 minute walk. I’ve been doing this every morning and it makes my legs ache, my pulse race and my heart so much lighter. Try it.

Just bought Paul’s new book: Eat Awesome

    A cool drawing and painting APP for the iPad is Paper by 53. If you like to mess around with drawing it is really fun.

    How are you finding Jeanette Winterson’s memoir? I have been tempted to read it myself after reading some extracts.

    Really love the mixed tape this week. Thanks much – filled my heart on a lazy, yet swirling thought-filled, Easter Sunday afternoon.
