Just checking in with you all, hope your weekend is going swimmingly. Mine is (almost literally due to the tremendous amount of rain we’ve seen over the last couple of days, it truly is a proper Scottish “summer) and tomorrow is finally moving day, hurrah! Very excited to get home from work tomorrow to unpacking all my boxes and finding all the things I’ve been missing such as my candles, my books and making my bedroom look cute.

It’s been a busy old week of work and going to the gym as I am now a gym goer (let’s see how long this lasts) and I’m very sad the weekend is almost over – I could do with another couple of days to be honest! Tonight we are going out for dinner as a celebration for the big move and tomorrow we will be off – can’t really believe we are moving out of my childhood home. Let’s home next week is just as lovely. Anyway, this week’s little things ..

A day after my box of Papergang goodness for the bees arrived, the next addition, the June box arrived on my doorstep. I wasn’t expecting it so it was super exciting and I assumed the dispatch email I had received was for my late May box. It made my Thursday afternoon very riveting, let me tell you.

Whilst this box isn’t my favourite one ever, it is another special one. Similar to last month, this box has a charity bonus as well. For every four box sold one tree will be planted by the international development charity Tree Aid due to their partnership with Ohh Deer on this box.

Tarot is something I’m interested in. I know some people are very sceptical of it and as a result, completely against it. I don’t believe it is some higher power that has all the answers to all of life’s questions but more of tapping into my subconscious and learning things that I was already aware of to some extent.

I read a really good fiction book called Sepulchre by Kate Mosse (which I’ve blogged about before) after my exams after a long period of feeling lost and unsure and a bit scared of my future and the direction I’m heading in. Tarot was a major theme in this book and the character’s own development which pushed my interest in tarot more.

It’s Saturday night and I’m about to commit to a night of binge watching Sherlock because Love Island isn’t on and I’m not sure what to do about it. I’m currently on episode 2 and cor blimey, I forgot how blinkin’ amazing this show is. I think I’m in for a wild night. I also have to pick my sister up from her night out and I’m a) v worried she is sick in my new car and b) v excited for the McDonald’s I’m definitely going to have in the 24 McDonald’s in Berwick.

This week has been different to previous, I started a job (yay!) and the task of moving house from the farm to our new digs has begun so it is all very exciting. Only one week and one day left in this house I’ve called home for the last 19 odd years so it is pretty emotional but I’m very excited to get moved and start decorating and playing around with my new room! But on with this week’s little things ..

After my first instalment of this post back in April, I realised that I still needed to share so many more amazing bloggers. When I compiled my list, I didn’t realise how many insanely good blogs I read and I was left with so many who I didn’t manage to write about first time. So voila, here we have the take two version. I spend a lot of time on the internet reading blogs and these 8 ladies cover amazing variations of content: from lifestyle to books to travel to spirituality.

If you think your “to read” list is lacking a little bit, I fully recommend giving these bloggers lot a whirl. I don’t read things that I can’t be bothered with but I find myself continuously checking these ladies blogs for new posts, I’m bordering on obsessive tbh.
