“Be steady and well-ordered in your life so that you can be fierce and original in your work.”
― Gustave Flaubert
It’s Friday, I’m putting the Russian event to bed and gearing up for one involving Rolls Royce. Life is surreal right now. It’s also Jeff’s 29th birthday and I get to tease him about being old (while wiser people roll their eyes at us). I have to say, he is aging marvelously.
We celebrated earlier in the week with an excellent dinner at a restaurant we’d both wanted to go to for over a year, and it was worth it! Tonight it’s pizza and movies with presents. Over the weekend it’s freelance, food, and writing/editing. I’m pleasantly tired and looking forward to it. If I could find a way to mix in regular exercise again, I would be downright impressive. Here are you links, with extra holiday cheer, and share anything else worth reading in the comments!
The John Lewis Christmas film has arrived. And I am in irrational love with it. Call me ridiculous, but as the companion of an intrepid and well loved teddy bear, I think this advert nails both the relationship and the general loveliness of the season. Sue me.
Sainsbury too?! Guys, my heart grew three sizes this day.
And speaking of childhood wonder: loop forever.
The madness needs to stop!
Newly working with luxury developers as I am (she humbled bragged), these caught my eye.
In case you haven’t noticed them on The Toast, their women in Western art pieces are hilarious. But this is my favorite yet.
I snort laughed, remembering the feeling of the limitations of my first paycheck well.
Oh dear…some of Jeff’s “dance” moves are validated…
