I thought it would be fun to share a few snaps from my phone this week. I haven’t taken any amazing photos but still, they capture a moment. My weeks are focused around my work but that doesn’t mean I don’t get the chance to pop out for lunch or meet up with family and friends. It actually means I take a little more care to manage my time so that I get out and about instead of just typing away on my laptop.
I kicked-started the week with a lunch date with my auntie. We went to Howst for a good catch up, a couple of almond milk flat whites and a fab bacon sandwich.
The following day my mum and grandma came to visit. We went for coffee and lunch at Edison’s Coffee which is right by the cathedral. We had a good catch up, heard all about ym mum’s recent trip to Tehran and finished the day with a relaxing cuppa at the Virgin Lounge.
On Wednesday I met up with my pal Connor and we made our way to visit Cupola Contemporary Art. I can’t believe that this was my first time visiting the gallery. We had the pleasure of chatting to Karen Sherwood, the founder and owner of this delightful gallery for our Behind the Biz video series. Subscribe to our YouTube channel and keep an eye out for our next interview.
On Thursday I had a dentist appointment which went well and I stopped by Mr.Bubbles Coffee & Launderettes for a coffee while I sheltered from the rain. They sell good coffee, snacks and the big tables have plug sockets in. Ideal for students and freelancers to get their work done. The staff are really friendly and I’ll be popping in there again soon.
I was reminded of Alice Shields fantastic work this week. I have a couple of her illustrated bird mugs which I love using. The Millennium Gallery are now stocking her mugs, tea towels and other bits.
I’ve been trying out Roots this week. They’re a blend of veg which can be drank as a smoothies or added to cooking. They’re all really tasty. I particularly enjoyed drinking the Sweet Beets one for breakfast today and the Asian Sling is about to go into the soup I’m making. I’ll be sharing a full review of the collection later this week.
I normally read or listen to business books but when I was in Waterstones yesterday this book caught my eye – In Order To live. I imagine it’s quite a harrowing but insightful read. Have any of you read it?
This was the liveliest I have ever seen the centre of Sheffield. Let me introduce you to Frumptarn Guggenband. They’re a Barnsley based band who blend brass and percussion. I couldn’t stop for long but I hope to see them again. There’s a bunch of videos of them on YouTube so do check them out.
What did you get up to this week?
