Reading List (29/5)

I do hope you’ve had a fab long weekend. The summer is approaching at a pace and I can’t help but feel that slowing down and taking it all in is necessary.

Loved these Twitter responses to the advice that by 35 you should have twice your salary saved (for retirement purposes).

Absolutely loved this dog and his ducklings.

Ice-cream flavours inspired by history. Unbelievably cool.

On rivers. The joy of lidos.

Focus on making good food cheaper.

Peas and leek shoots for dinner?

The importance of eating together.

What do pop-up food museums say about us?

Love love love a poppyseed cake.

Four books for the summer – I have the Penelope Lively one next to my bed, and the Lucy Mangan one on order at the library…

Loved this advice to not eat everything in your fridge when you’re working from home.

I read Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine in about 24 hours this past weekend. I just had to keep reading, to find out what happened, but also because I found Eleanor an entirely amusing and perceptive character. It is a totally feel-good type of book, despite it dealing with some pretty horrific topics. Perfect if you need something to read on your summer holiday (although I’d recommend taking something else too, this won’t take you long.)
