Using anchovies
I first got into anchovies when they were needed for a chicken recipe mentioned in this post. And then I made Nigella's tomato. anchovy and mascarpone pasta with the leftovers and it was AMAZING.

Simon Reeve episode on Gaza
This made a huge impact on me.
(It won't be available on BBC iPlayer forever, but for reference it is the 'Mediterranean' series episode 2.)

Cat Person
I know I am terribly late to the party on this one - but the short story 'Cat Person' published in the New Yorker is so relatable and real in terms of depicting sex / relationships in the digital age, and gender roles. It was so unbelievably real and accurate, and I don't seem to be the only one who has had a similar (or worse) tale.
I first heard about it on this podcast (which is quite good!)
& some of the responses to the piece here, here and here are really interesting

Slightly shamelessly, I love a few of the songs that are in the charts right now. My sister introduced me to this:

Taki Taki - DJ Snake

Sid's sketchbooks
(under the travel journal highlights section)


Want to get into knitting & craft, yoga, mindfulness, cycling / brisk walking, perhaps a run, continue reading.

(I also really want to start watching Big Little Lies)

New tech rules - no phone after Xpm (9pm?), no phone Sundays (?) or one day a week?, try to only go on phone with purpose, decide a 'replying to people' time/day.

Read more, think more, talk more, screen less.
