As baby Nerdling has now decided she sleeps ON HER FACE, I'm never sleeping again 😭 I am still reading Thrawn, but I really fancied some crime! I'm trying one of the @lisajewelluk
books the hubby got me for Christmas
“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Alice in Wonderland, one of my all time favourite books and now I can have a cup of tea with a saucer. Very proper 🐰
"Oh, mio volume ambizioso e vano,
Verso la strada nomata Padrenostro
Che alla fama tutti i libri porta,
Io ti scorgo lanciar disiosi sguardi!
Dal dorato taglio e ben legato,
Tu già ti vedi in quelle celebri vetrine.
Non ti fermo, và pure là da dove
Niun volume mai può ritornare,
E se critiche e condanne ti verranno,
O se nessuno di te si curerà,
Allora forse sentirai il rimpianto
Di avermi abbandonato; me e la casa che fu tua.
Ché se invece qualche elogio avrai
E i lettori di me saper vorranno,
Tutta la verità dì pure al mondo:
Piccolo e deforme, da natura non certo favorito,
Di bizzarri e lunatici umori,
Agli estremi - odio o amor - portato,
Superbo e ombroso, ai nemici indulgenza
Nega, ma è pronto a dar vita per chi
Un poco l'ami. Se gli anni miei ti chiederanno,
Dì ancor la verità; la proveranno
Tutti i difetti della tua fattura:
Dì che appena entrato sono
Nel ventunesimo anno della vita.
Và, mio volume, segui la tua strada,
A te e a me la speme sia compagna."
[The Monk - M.G. Lewis]

There's always time for a cup of tea
Sweet orange black tea on a cold, bloomy day out☁️ in one of my favorite places on earth!! I enjoy this moments the most, I’m at my happy place people☕️
I have know since high school that not everyone would love my personality yet I still spent a lot of time on convincing people that they should like me. One of those people being my mother, trying to be a good student, quite and well behaved as to not embarrass her, but I couldn’t been good enough no matter what I did because I left the property to go off and build my own life. It has taken my decades to understand that filling my cup with self care like daily workout time, daily anti aging hygiene habits, sleeping in a cozy warm spot, spending the majority of my time being of service to help people connect to themselves and each other in deeper ways, and making sure my little dog lives a stress free lifestyle! When I can be fully accepted for being my detail orientated, loud at times, wiggly self then it is so much funnier to live my life. To let go of the people pleaser and embrace being a super nova that will draw in all that people that freaking love you it the back bone to living a phenomenal life.
Congrats on making it halfway through the week, friends! Did you have a moment to enjoy a hot cup of tea this morning? 💜
