Ok, it’s not quite the end of the month, but it’s Wednesday, it’s time for coffee, and I feel like sprinkling some pre-YALC joy around before I head down south for a long weekend of book heaven. Join me?
I’m drinking another Clifton coffee this week. The Finca Capetullo from Guatemala with tasting notes of mulberry, blackcurrant and molasses. This coffee is as good as it sounds.
The Happy Things:
WIMBLEDON. I love Wimbledon. Plans to see friends I haven’t seen for ages. The best TBR ever chosen by my fave book people. Pizza for tea. Feeling organised. Raspberries. Popcorn! Doggos. So many good book events to look forward to. Coffee. Yoga. Tennis. S. Husband. Awesome books. Surprise flowers from Bloom and Wild. Day in Sheffield with friends. Sunshine! Lunch with prosecco. Cinema trips. Snoozes. Ice-cream sundaes. Dog walks on the beach. The North Sea. Fresh bedding. Finally finishing knitting crowns! Having the best Waterstones of all the Waterstoneses (or whatever the plural is). Pics of my baby nephew. Awesome tennis. Super cute doggos. Getting flowers from Nana’s garden. Enjoying a last tea in Nana’s garden in the sunshine. Time with my sister and her family. Pride Panel awesomeness. Meeting Alice Oseman again. Meeting Simon James Green again. Meeting Savannah Brown for the first time. Wagas with my fave. New books! Prepping for YALC. Finally getting a decent night sleep. Meeting friends. S finishing Year 3.
