      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

What cheered you up today?

Recommended Posts

After watching the eclipse on Plymouth Hoe with my friends, some of us went for breakfast at a café on the waterfront. It was a beautiful day, and as we were eating, we saw a submarine coming in :) Then when I got back to my flat, I found I had an email telling me that I've got a job when my second year starts in September mentoring the first years on my course to help them with their coursework and help them settle in to uni life throughout the year  :) A few of my friends and I are going on a daytrip to Looe tomorrow, too, which should be great :D

 

I love this thread, so full of happy posts! :D

Loads more hugs from various clients, and being invited to share a cup of tea and a slice of birthday cake with one of them. Sometimes I love my job. :smile:

A girl I have (before now) only ever hung out with through a mutual friend, asked me did I want to meet for lunch today and it went really well, so I'm happy about that. She's a lovely girl and I'd love to become better friends with her independent of our mutual friend (who is also lovely and I love spending time with both of them, but it's nice to have a friendship with her that can stand on its own legs.)

Remembering that it was a bank holiday week so it's not Wednesday today, but Thursday already, and therefore Friday tomorrow! :lol:  Bring on the weekend :cool:

Sitting in the sun, out in the garden with my dad, listening to the blackbirds singing :cool:

That sounds lovely Claire :hug:

 

Went for a walk with Alan in the sunshine, lots of birds, butterflies and flowers and people out enjoying themselves and picnicking  :smile:

I love this time of year (when the sun shines but it's not too hot) .. it's just perfect.

Spilling Liquid nitrogen on the floor and watching it explode

 

That sounds interesting.

 

What cheered me up more than anything today was the glorious weather - and also finding out that they had baked a fresh batch of gluten free scones in the kitchen.

Sitting in the garden (in the sunshine) reading my new cook book.. Then taking Robbie to football training this evening having a lovely chat with some of the other Mums, and Dad while we watched them.

Being productive! Cleaned up around the house a bit, put on a wash, went to the shop, and have been getting back into reading, so all of that has made me feel a bit brighter after a dodgy few days :)

Walking in the door after work to the aroma of dinner cooking! :D

This never happens to me. Admittedly any work I do do is at home but still .. I could walk around the block and come in again :D

This would only make me sad because it would mean flatmate was cooking for herself and not for me. :( (And she's practically a chef, as she only has a few months of school left!) :lol: 

 

What cheered me up today? The empty, clean kitchen counter after I did the dishes :smile2::D Small pleasures <3

Getting up this morning and seeing the back garden looking a little bit tidier after my efforts yesterday. It's still Weed City out there, but it does look slightly better! :smile:

Getting two gorgeous new dresses in the post, one of which (the stormy sky kites one) was acquired thanks to someone who kindly had it shipped to her as the seller wouldn't post outside the UK (and also thanks to our very own Janet for offering to do the same)! So thrilled with both of these!
