10 things to read and do this weekend
- I received the best Mother’s Day card ever from Theo (above). I think this weekend I’m going to get the crayons out again and do some art!
- I did the Myers Briggs test at work with my team yesterday. I’m an ISFJ. Have you ever done it? What are you? I want to know everyone’s personality types now!
- But what if you don’t get on with your mother at all? This post from Robyn Wilder was very sad. Her son is a few weeks younger than mine, and I don’t know what I would do if my mother basically refused to even acknowledge him. Side note on this: sometimes I feel like a weird stalker of this family. I read her husband’s column every week in the Guardian and I follow them both on Instagram, so I feel like I know all about her son and when they post a video of him doing something I feel oddly proud of him, as though he were the son of someone in my NCT group or something. Is that weird? Yes, I know it’s weird.
- Still reading First Bite at home, and finishing up The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir for work. It’s very Sunday night drama – a fun read so far. I haven’t been reading much at home recently, as I’ve been going to bed super early, but hopefully I’ll make a big dent on First Bite this weekend.
- Looking forward to reading The Unmumsy Mum, which a friend sent me. I love her blog so much.
- It was International Women’s Day on Monday. And in case you think the equality fight has already been won, here is something to make you laugh and cry… Brought to you by the people behind the No More Page 3 campaign, I really like the look of this website.
- Speaking of International Women’s Day, did you see Richard Herring correcting every outraged person about why there wasn’t an International Men’s Day? (There is; it’s in November.) Round of applause to him.
- I also very much enjoyed Innocent’s highlighting of these revolutionary pens for women…
- Maybe it’s because I’m not a pro-blogger, and don’t have plans to be one, but I only ever feel support from other women within the blogosphere. But I have heard stories about people being incredibly bitchy and refusing to work with or help people within the same space as them. I really feel like there from so much to gain from being supportive, and so little to gain from being protective over your tiny corner of the internet, and it was nice to see a much bigger blogger expressing the same sentiment.
- Have you heard of Trello? I had never heard of it, but after Leanne’s post, I am going to sign up and use it for work. It looks like just the thing I need for managing multiple campaigns.
