WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY #76

Does anyone else feel extremely tired this week? I'm not sure if it's the heat, or the fact that it's the longest day of the year tomorrow but I just can't stop yawning and I really, really struggled to get out of bed on Monday. 

I've just about managed to put this list together, through my yawns and tired eyes...

Getting hooked on a book...again

Last week I mentioned that I hadn't read in a little while and was desperate to get back to it. I put The Fear down and picked up Dear Amy instead, it took me less than a week to finish it, it was SO good. A definite page turner with a good little twist, I would highly recommend it!

Launching my Twitter chat

I finally have a Twitter account for my chat that's launching in July!

I spent Saturday afternoon with Sian in a coffee shop, planning two months worth of chat topics and questions and I can't thank her enough for helping. Sometimes you just need someone to bounce ideas off.

The chat will be launching on 8th July at 6pm. Make sure you're following @amixedbagchat on Twitter, and for more details on the chat content click here.

Feeling proud

G achieved something pretty awesome this week and I'm so very proud of him. It put a big smile on my face (and his too!). 

Morning rain

Waking up on Sunday morning to the sound of pouring rain was absolute bliss. It's such a soothing sound and when you're tucked up in bed, it just makes everything seem so cosy.

A family catch up 

As Sunday was Father's day, I popped to see my Dad and his partner Jo. We had a catch up, a bit of lunch and the most amazing chocolate truffles (well I bought them for Dad but they were so good, I couldn't resist). 


That's all from me this week. Pop by the rest of the wonder women* to see what little delights have made their top list. If you fancy joining in yourself, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with us on Twitter!
