“Kimberley, you haven’t written in almost two weeks and you only just launched your blog!” I know. I know. But for the last two weeks I have been in bed with a bad bout of the flu (and still am – help!).
It’s currently extremely grey and stormy outside, and the rain is softly pitter-pattering against my window. My huge ginger cat Leonardo is curled up next to me. My fireplace is glowing with its amber hue, and I am currently curled up under a duvet drinking a warm mug of peppermint tea whilst watching The Holiday. If I weren’t so ill this would be heaven!
The Holiday is one of my all-time favourite go-to films, and I’ve lost count of the amount of times that I’ve watched it. My love for Kate Winslet is completely eternal!
Besides The Holiday, all I have been watching for the last two weeks are the film and tv adaptions of Jane Austen’s works, as well as starting today off with Austenland, which was extremely adorable, hilarious, and oh my GOSH JJ Feild just melted my heart. I have an unhealthy obsession with all things Jane Austen, with an extremely soft spot for Northanger Abbey, Emma, and of course Pride and Prejudice. Her work is so calming and familiar to me, that it never fails to make me feel better! (I also have a bit of a literary obsession with Emily Bronte – but that’s a whole other blog post!)
So, as I return to my flu-induced hibernation, my plans for the rest of the week are to turn myself into a duvet/human burrito and not leave my bed, while drinking all the tea I can get my hands on. I hope you’re having a good week!
