Listening: I bought the Of Monsters and Men album, My Head is an Animal, about three months ago and it hasn’t left my car stereo. I bought it because I love their song Little Talks, but every single song on the album is fantastic. My favourite song, though, the song that has me hittting the repeat button two or three times is Slow and Steady. It’s liltingly beautiful and the lyrics gently push and pull me in different directions simultaneously.
Watching: Orange Is The New Black. This was one of those TV series that I kept reading about a couple of months ago, and they have started showing it on Foxtel. I’m enjoying watching Piper adjust to life in prison, but I also really like the focus on the ensemble characters as well. Natasha Lyonne is perfect in it.
Reading: The Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel is a non-fiction book about a group of men and women from thirteen nations who were tasked with saving as much of the culture of Europe as possible during World War II. It’s been made into a film directed by and starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Jean Dujardin, and Bill Murray. An interesting story, and I think the film will be a good one.
Travelling: We just spent a week up at Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast, and it was lovely. Blue skies, warm weather, the beach quite literally at our back door. Our 18 month old daughter loved the water and wandering around on the beach, and my husband and I got a lot of R’n’R in. I highly recommend a visit there – plenty of restaurants and cafes to keep you happy, there’s a shopping centre a short bus or taxi ride away, you can hire a car to do the short 40 minute drive up to the Eumundi market, and you can check out the surrounding Sunshine Coast resort towns along the way. Oh, and yes, the beach and sky really did look that perfect! Just in case you were wondering….
What are you reading/watching/listenting to/travelling to at the moment? I’d love to know!
