Friday Links 26th May

It is HOT here. If you’re not in the UK, you may not think that the heat that we have right now is anything special, but for us, this is pretty much like living on the surface of the sun.

I’m not complaining, though! Cycling in the sun massively beats cycling in the rain. And we have a three day weekend, within which the sun will be most welcome!

Let’s linkie!

Nicole has started drawing a tarot card out each morning – sounds like an interesting way to start the day!

Mary Lane did a photo shoot for her online dating accounts! How good of an idea is this!!

A couple of weeks ago I was teasing Amanda about her Instagram story when she was off walking the Brontes trail in Yorkshire. The wind was so strong it was all we could hear! But it really does look like an amazing thing to do!

Have a lovely weekend!

Deepa’s been making the yummiest-looking falafel and I want an invite next time she makes it.

Fancy something sweeter? Amanda has been making some granola bars!

Drunk you is the real you? Eek then I’m an arsehole…

Lastly, let’s have some linguist fun!

Have a great weekend!


Book Review: The Glass Wall

The Glass Wall is a manual for the working world – I would say that it’s not just women but men too who need to read it.

I’m frankly overwhelmed with how popular yesterday’s post about being authentic has been. It’s really encouraging as I have some plans for this here blog.

I want to focus more on careers – specifically employability skills like doing interviews and writing CVs. These are things I teach to teenagers every day in my job – why not teach them through my blog too. I’m looking into setting up webinars and so on as well.

An honest reminder – you do not need to achieve every day.
