Another week, another step closer to Christmas.
For real, can you believe we are halfway through the year already? I’m getting so clichéd in my old age, constantly talking about time passing, as though hours have turned into minutes and minutes have turned into seconds. But I can’t help it. Each month seems to be passing me by with every blink I take. I’ll be waving my firstborn off on their first day of school in no time at this rate.
Anyway, distract yourself from those Sunday Blues (and the transience of time) by diving into what I discovered on my Internet exploration over the past seven days.

After a big, fat gap in Sunday Papers posts of late, I thought I would start them back up again. However, the sun is shining and most of you are probably tucking into brunch, sipping on cocktails with friends, or baking in the midday sun, and probably won’t be interested in scrolling through online articles at this moment in time. However, once you’re home and have enjoyed a cold shower, moisturised those shoulders and fixed yourself up a little light, summertime supper, why not tuck into these reads from the last 7 days? Sometimes it’s good to reflect.

I’ve heard so many people say they feel as though 2017 has finally started and I guess they’re right. We’ve all stopped pretending to be eating well and not drinking as much and we’re back into the swing of normality and planning the year ahead. I’ve read lots this week I’d like to share, so here goes.
