These Things No. 63

i cannot BELIEVE the last time i did a These Things was in October last year! that is crazy. i guess ever since i started the Mid Week Distractions i put These Things on the back burner, which is silly cause they’re not the same thing. These Things is like the fun cousin of Mid Week Distractions… they’re like eyebrows “They are sisters, not twins.”

so this coming weekend is a long weekend in SA, as well as next weekend. yes, this is the month of all the public holidays ever. i have a favour to ask you – can you recommend a GREAT book to get stuck into? i plan on putting away my devices and going old school on one of my days off. curling up on the couch and not getting up unless for tea and cookies. i like mystery, suspense, history, romance… anything gripping, anything that you just can’t. put. down.

this may seem ridiculous to all my US readers, but i only just started using Spotify (with a little, ahem, help to access it from outside the US). i even found an app to mute those annoying ads! well, enough about my nefarious activities – can you recommend any great users to follow / playlists to fave / stations to try? i’m kind of lost as to how to navigate the rabbit hole that is streaming music. help!

i felt terrible about missing last week’s Mid Week Distraction. i think i actually couldn’t sleep that night, haha! but, you know, sometimes you drop the ball. sometimes there are too many balls to juggle. sometimes… okay, enough with the balls metaphors.

one of my favourite things about shopping from Etsy is that you can contact the seller directly, chat to them about special orders and shipping needs (which, sometimes, means you can avoid international customs charges – woohoo!) but most of all that you get to support small, independent shops and designers. there’s so much rad stuff out there, and it can be hard to wade through it all – so here’s a nice shopping list, in the form of a Nice Things.

the first two links in this mid week distraction are related to cancer. i have had several close & dear friends affected by this absolute asshole of a disease in the past few months. some have just been diagnosed, others are battling through chemo, and some have lost their loved ones to it – devastatingly, and swiftly.

wow, i feel like my biggest and only post these days to you is my mid week distraction. don’t get me wrong – i LOVE doing it. and i love that you love it. but i’ve found myself so busy with non-blog stuff lately that i’m neglecting this old bird… and that just WON’T DO.
