To be entertained...

The other day I found myself in a book store, which isn´t unusual. As usual browsing for new books, and preferably the latest and best-selling in anything that´s self-developing, teaching, inspiring, spiritual, body & mind or scientific. Standing there I realised that the only thing I actually needed right now from a book was to be entertained. Not learning anything new at all for the whole weekend. Not even think too much actually. I realised how important it is to listen to your needs and to know that sometimes you need to take a break from your normal routines, whatever it is you do. I am positive this is great for creativity in all areas of life. I then realised it´s been ages since I treated myself to a glamorous chick lit book, and that was my need for the moment. So I turned to a trustworthy author in the chic lit department, Adele Parks. I love a good chick lit, but it absolutely must be well written, witty, sharp and keep me gripped from the first pages. This one delivers on all of that. So I´m going to spend a considerable amount of time in this chair during the weekend cuddled up with endless amounts of tea. A favourite is the classic chai with the little notes of wisdom on every tea bag. If last weekend was all about girlfriends, champagne and glamour, this weekend is all about spending time at home with the family, cook fabulous dinners, eat too much Häagen Dasz and turn page after page after page...

Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Låter som en bra och skön helg. Att få njuta av en bra bok och en kopp thé är aldrig fel. Jag ska ta och slå en kik på den stundande bokrean och se om jag kan köpa på mig lite bra böcker :).
    Ha det bra och hoppas du är frisk nu! Kram Jennifer

  8. Böcker slår data och TV med hästlängder:) de gör att man får använda sin fantasi, som blir mer sällsynt i ett förvirrat IT land.

    Jag önskar dig en fin vecka
