Sunday was the last day of my holidays and I spent it with lots of lovely and hygge activities (except doing my taxes!). The sun was shining almost all day and it was so warm outside that I did not need a scarf or gloves later when I rode my bike into town. The winter temperatures from last week (-13C!) seemed like ages ago!
I returned from my summer holidays only two days ago and in my mind I am still wandering along the Irish coast or enjoy a coffee on the busy streets of London. It has been a wonderful 9 days of freedom.
April 22nd, World Record Store Day. April 2017 – month I bought a shitload of records. After the dark, rainy and cold winter days I needed some new fresh music to cheer me up (not that it stopped being rainy and cold… April was a typical April with rain and hail showers, stormy weather and frosty nights). And I somehow ended up with 6 new records! Four of them by female singer/songwriters/bandleaders and two of them rather „retro“.
Bookstores are one of my favourite places. Ever. I love the smell in there, the smell of books in general, the dust on the higher shelves, the quiet you sometimes find in smaller stores. After a busy and tiring day at work I sometimes take a different route back home just to nip into one of my favourite bookstores.
