Sundays get a bad rap. And I have to say, I get it.

The anxiety you encounter as it starts edging towards evening time and the perils of a Monday morning move ever closer is enough to make you hit the bottle. But those Sunday morning moments, particularly in those dozy Autumnal months, where you lie in bed until much later than you’d anticipated, indulging in pastries and a whole lot of lonesome laptop time can turn the last day of the week into the best day of the week. Doing nothing feels good. Doing nothing is a necessity.

Before the Internet, people of all ages would come together at the closing of the weekend to read the Sunday papers. These days, the only rag we tend to enjoy (tolerate) is The Metro and I can pretty much guarantee that unless you have a spare half hour at the office, you’ll rarely take the time to read online articles in their fullness. Between late nights, morning meetings and a lack of actual whole-hour lunch hours, there isn’t much time to rub your eyes and settle down to some quality reading. But reading is important. And isn’t necessarily a lonely past time. So here I am, bringing you some current affairs, dinner party tit bits and interesting articles that I’ve encountered over the last 7 days, to peruse at your leisure. And then discuss.

Grab your duvet, a really good cup of coffee and a pain au chocolat and join me in reading The Sunday Papers.

Here’s what I’ve got for you this week:

How do babies born to same-sex couples feel about their family?

Life after attempting suicide.


How gratitude will change your life.

Chrissie Hynde acting the goat.

A film I am dying to see.

Street Style – because it is Fashion Week.  

A word on the Observer’s reaction to Corbyn.

How to get her there.

A note on female friendship.

So there we have it. Some stuff I enjoyed reading this week, that maybe you will too? Let me know. But until next Sunday, be chill, be cool and relax. The weekend will be here sooner than you think. Have a good one.


Read something really great in the next 7 days? Email the link to or share it with me on Twitter and I’ll be sure to post it on here next Sunday for the world – or at least just my lovely readers – to see.
