Hi gang, I hope you all had lovely weekends. I had a goodun. Some of my favourite people came to stay at the flat, we went to an engagement party and cooked an almighty breakfast today. So those were the highlights. The lowlight was me going over on my foot outside H&M and crying in the street. I’m definitely in that post-op recovery place of getting a wee bit too bold on the crutches because it’s feeling better, but there will be the odd mishap along the way. This time next week we’ll all be in a Christmas Day…

I’m still in recovery from the operation, but it’s lovely to be back writing again. Here are seven things I’ve enjoyed during my convalescence. Please do send me anything you’ve read/watched/listened to and loved.

I’m treating myself as I’m about to go into hospital next week for a foot operation and will be off my feet for a long time so this weekend, spent in the Lakes with my best friend, has been a total tonic. Here are seven things I read and liked this week: Ah Emma, we are so often on the same wavelength. I’ve mentioned a few times now…

After eating far too much in Copenhagen and telling you allll about it in Part One , here is where I pretend I’m actually much more cultured when I head on a city break and don’t spend all my time eating (honest). There are so many amazing things to do in Copenhagen, here’s a selection of my faves. P.S. I’m currently listening to The Year of Living Danishly and so far I LOVE it! Review to follow… DO Even if you don’t stay in SP34 (mentioned in part one), do visit the Latin Quarter anyway. It’s full of seriously cool…
