The Sunday Catch Up #11

lonely planet mag

Good Morning Sunshine! And what a lovely week it's been! Yorkshire actually got some sunshine this week although sadly for me, I work in an office and I don't even face a window. Yep, get the tissues out. I'm really hoping the sunshine sticks around for a bit now, but we all know that isn't gunna happen don't we.

This week I've started listening to podcasts which is something I haven't really done before. I don't know if it's because my attention span is horrendous or what but something really gelled this week and I've gotten really into them. I've been listening to Laura Jane William's (Superlatively Rude) podcast 'becoming' and Emma Gannon's (Girl Lost in the City) 'Ctrl Alt Del'. Both feature inspiring conversations between inspiring women and you should go and listen. I've also been listening to the TedX Talks on travel via youtube. I especially liked Rick Steves: The Value of Travel. Next up, Serial.

As an anti-social hermit crab, my social calender is usually pretty quiet bar the odd trip to the pub but this weekend I have had not one BUT TWO social engagements. I know I'm practically Paris Hilton without the sex tape and all the money. Yesterday I attended Ice Lolly's Blog At The Beach (more on that another day) and today it's my sister's baby shower at Mama Doreen's Emporium in Harrogate - Meaning CAKE CAKE CAKE.

On Tuesday night I took advantage of my Meerkat Movies voucher code and dragged Jody to see The Jungle Book. I loved it and Jody gave it a solid 10/10 - Something he doesn't do very often. It's hard to believe that the film is shot primarily in CGI as all the animals are so lifelike. I think the actors cast were perfect for their roles aswell, especially Christopher Walken as a mobster style King Louie. Go see it.

Before I sign off, has anybody played Heads Up? It's Ellen DeGeneres's app and basically, there are a few categories to pick from, pick a category and your family and friends have to act out the word, do the accent etc etc and you have to guess the word on your forehead. It's heaps of fun, especially if you have a crazy family like I do!
