*Hey there! This is going to be a new feature in A bookworm’s life. Every Sunday I’ll do a wrap-up post where I’ll talk about whatever I got up to during the week, bookish and otherwise.*
I woke up on Monday and as I do every single morning I went to check on our “garden” which is basically five pots on the kitchen windowsill. And what a lovely sight to start my week: so many purple and white flowers on our “Love-in-the-mist”. I love this modest little garden; it’s one of my favourite things to use fresh herbs from our pots in cooking.
This is the Open Doors weekend in Oxford, which means that most of the University of Oxford Colleges open their doors to the public and allow access to places that are usually reserved only for students and fellows. So I spent most of Saturday pottering around Oxford colleges and I have to say they are gorgeous! It’s all beautiful courtyards and medieval archways and magnificent chapels and grand dining halls. Plus there was the courtyard where a scene in Harry Potter was filmed! I think I’ll do a separate post about it because I have many, many pictures I want to share.
Since it’s September I simply had to do some back-to-school shopping. I love buying stationery, it’s one of my favourite traditions of the season. I think, for me, autumn will forever be a time of new beginnings and of new notebooks and sharpened pencils.
And speaking of new beginnings, I went ahead with something I have been thinking about for a while. Yes, that’s a video of me. It’s still quite awkward, but I think it could be fun! Check it out and please let me know what you think.
What did you get up to this week? Do you have anything special to look forward to? I might be going to see the new Anna Karenina film tonight (I just need to convince The Boy to go with me). Are you planning on seeing it?
