Something for the weekend

SFTW: The best nail polish, baked donuts and Milibae

May 3, 2015

The best nail polish, baked donuts and MilibaeI hope the weekend’s treating you right and let’s all thank the start of May that this one’s going to stretch out a little bit longer. It was light when I drove to netball on Thursday at 8pm which, regular readers of my rambles will know, make me incredibly happy. I really enjoy daylight. The temperature might have decided to return to more autumnal levels after our brief Spring earlier in April, but as long as I’ve got natural light and a robust trench coat I can handle that.

The week was work, work, work with a healthy dose of netball as per usual (I am a creature of routine, you know) as I gear up for some time off this week (General Election!) and in a couple of weeks time (NYC!).  A range of observations, links and recommendations for your Sunday reading pleasure follow below…
