May Favourites

This month I have been...

Mainly pretty boring stuff like a compost bin and self-sufficient cat toys so that Bluebell will stop trying to get our attention in the evening by knocking stuff off my carefully curated shelves! I am in the market for a tinted moisturiser or BB/CC cream too but I just can't decide which one to get. Any advice please let me know.

Rich and I are midway through the 3rd season of Fargo, which is good but not great in my opinion, nowhere near as compelling as season 1 or even 2. We are also re-watching Flight of the Conchords (always a delight) and I am living for Ru Paul's Drag Race, which I watch on the bus. How did I take so long to get involved?!? Okurrrrrr.

I have finished Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie this month, which was part of  my book challenge; the category 'A book by a favourite author'. I loved the book, the characters were well developed and flawed but still likeable (mostly), and there was an interesting twist at the end.  I'm now finishing a Jacqueline Wilson book which I'm not sorry about and then I'll get back on the adult fiction bandwagon. Next category in my reading challenge is 'A book recommended by a librarian or independent book seller' which tbh I'm a bit scared about, I might cheat and pick one from a display of recommended books rather than have to ask someone and risk them thinking I'm a weirdo, because you know, other people amirite. We'll see. 

For these amazing Sandro flats (yeah right!) and a good pair of black dungarees since I had to retire my old ones (they were faded and ripped beyond repair). Why can't I find any that are cotton? Why are they all denim? I'm also wishing wishing wishing that it is hot for our holiday to France at the beginning of June.
