Sunday Diary | #1

Sunday Diary is a new feature I’d like to start on the blog, where I chat about all the things that have happened since the past Sunday. It’s a chance for me to ramble away and hopefully you’ll learn a bit about me at the same time.

Last Sunday was the Autumn Equinox, and a very special day that means a lot to me. The day before I made lots of cakes, and it was nice to feel so spiritual and at one with the earth. It was also my best friend’s birthday so I spent the day in the woods at a local park, taking pictures while a group of my friend’s did a treetop explorer course. It was way too high for my liking so I decided to sit out but I really enjoyed it nonetheless.

Then we spent way too much time trying to make a human pyramid, ensuing in my shoulder aching for days afterwards and, more positively, lots of laughs.


On Monday, my grandmother passed away, which explains the total silence on the blog over the past few weeks. It’s been a stressful time, with hospital visits and now coming to terms with the fact that I will never speak to her again. That a life can end so easily. It makes me feel extremely mortal.

The weekend was a bit of a relief, as was my complete abuse of eyeliner. Sometimes I can go way overboard, but it does ground me. I don’t feel the same without eyeliner on!

This week I’ve really enjoyed talking to Cat, who never fails to make me laugh. Although she has turned me into a little bit of a stalker.

Blogs I’m loving this week:

On Serpentine Shores is such a gorgeous blog and I quickly devour every single post. Every single post gives me all the warm, cuddly feels and I can’t wait to read even more posts this autumn.

I discovered Loose and Leafy a few years ago, but rediscovered it recently. I particularly love the idea of Tree Following, which is something I’d like to do in the future.

Currently Reading:

Finally, after two whole years, I am marathoning the Stonewylde series by Kit Berry. I’m finding out again just why I fell in love with the series in the first place, and it’s incredible. I decided to read them because it’s two years since the last book was released, so it’s a bit of an anniversary present to myself! Although I’ve been on the verge of tears many times, I adore Stonewylde with every ounce of my body.

How was your week? What are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments!

    I’m so sorry for your loss *biggest hugs*. Losing family is like losing a piece of yourself and I applaud you for being so strong, if you ever need to talk to someone my ears are open.

    I think go to town with eye-liner, it used to be my statement piece of make-up when I was your age and still is every now and then. Just have fun with it ;). I’ve not heard of the Stonewylde series before and I’m always looking for recommendations.
