But that's it for now - not one card or roll of wrapping will find itself in my shopping basket for at least a couple of days 😉
At the weekend our paper included this supplement
Do you listen to podcasts? My son introduced them to me a while ago when 'Serial' was top of the charts. I like a true crime story, especially one that isn't straightforward. I was hooked. Then last year I listened to 'S-Town' which certainly took some odd twists and turns. I kind of forgot to download any after that, until I had a phase of having trouble getting off to sleep at nights. I didn't want to disturb P by having a light on to read so I thought I would try listening to something through headphones instead.
I discovered that some radio programmes do a podcast version and I've got hooked. It's nothing heavy - in fact a couple of them ensure that it is not a reading light that keeps P awake, but me chuckling to myself - he of course can't hear what is making me laugh as I've got headphones on and apparently it can be quite annoying to wonder what on earth I'm laughing about. But I have to say it is a great way to fall asleep (I quite often have to listen to the same podcast a couple of times as I am so relaxed I fall asleep before the end of it and have to rewind to hear the second half!)
My podcast lists are a real mix of genres
Since reading the Sunday supplement I've downloaded 'Dirty John' and I think it's going to be a good one! Anyone else out there a podcast fan? I'd welcome any good suggestions!
