Show a little love

Dear you,
Take a moment to yourself. Take care of your body, mind, and soul. It's time to stop worrying. I know you believe it might, but the world won't collapse if you stop worrying about it. About everything around you and everyone around you except you.
A truth I learned is that the world will go on without you. Your world won't. So take care of the center of your world.
For me, this week Soft Coeur by Lush is my act of self-care.  It's a massage bar, that doubles as a heavy duty body moisturiser, and it smells so wonderful, like honey and cocoa. Makes me smile every time. I've had it for ages, saving it for a special occasion. What's more special than now?
Much love,
Ria

Trying, and trying again

This was yummy if anyone is wondering.
Today has been about trying new things. New interesting experiments were planned, new buttons were added to the blog, new books were bought, and new cocktails will be tried soon with yummy food to accompany them. And I'm currently enjoying an apple rooibos latte -I've never had it before!-, relaxing at Starbucks, with one of my most favourite people in the world, whom I met when I was trying something new, writing. New hobby? Check!
Trying new things, then trying again. There's no fail in trying.

Currently

Buddy the cat looking at the snow.

  • Currently there's sweet snowy silence outside. And not a worry in the world.
  • Buddy the cat wants to go outside again to be surprised by how cold the snow is. For the millionth time since yesterday.
  • We're watching 'Tomorrow when the war began' and I'm wondering when I'll find time to read the actual book that has been on my phone for ages. And all the other books I have.
  • Gearing up for my n*th cup of tea of the day. I think I'll go for cinnamon and cloves this time.
  • I am editing things in my mind on the report I sent in for corrections the other day. I also have 'I got you babe' stuck in there...
  • I think about starting blogging again... I have a PhD to finish, this being the last year of it, but hey, anything to keep me busy. Let's see how it goes.
