Happies & Crappies – 01 – 06 Mar ’14



+ I’m still listening to audiobooks and and now onto my 3rd book in 2 weeks. I listened to The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger last week and it was fantastic! I’d highly recommend it, even if you have seen the film. There so much more to the story and I just fell in love with the characters. For me it’s one of those books that stays with you long after you’ve finished it and is now instant favourite of mine.

On the weekend I registered with the local library so I could stream the audiobooks they have available. I’m currently listening to The Mystery of Mercy Close by Marian Keyes but I’m not really enjoying it that much, and would consider it a summer throw-away read. I’ll finish it anyway as I’m about 20 chapters in and I’ll likely have it finished by the weekend.

BTW if you have any reading/audiobook recommendations I’d love to hear them & add me on goodreads.com!

+ On Friday Pete and I took the day off work and decided to go down to London to visit the Natural History Museum. I’ve been to the Science Museum next door many times, but never the NHM so it was nice to finally check it off the To Do list.


– I’ve been really tight chested and short of breath for the past week and I first thought it was because Pete has been sick and I was just staving of a recurrence of last weeks cold. But now the more I think about it I think it might be anxiety about going to South Africa. I’m obviously very excited to be going and seeing all my friends and family again, but I always get nervous when we go back for 2 reasons. 1 is the flight. I hate flying and get very anxious in the build up to the flight. 2 is the crime in South Africa still makes me nervous. It’s the reason I left and I hate that constant feeling of looking over your shoulder and having to lock your doors. I felt like a prisoner and going back to that even just for 3 weeks, scares me.
