In this moment

reading... Room by Emma Donoghue; this is the best book I've read in years. Compelling, heart breaking and completing unputdownable. I've been powering through it yet I never want it to end.
 
watching... Mr Selfridge. Just discovered this show and loving it. Can't wait to get my hands on Season 3!
 
buying... nothing at all. I'm a self imposed shopping ban for the greater good of my bank account.
 
feeling... a little bit sad. It's the Lunar New Year and we're not celebrating with my parents this year. It just feels wrong. I would love to bring Alexander home to Singapore to celebrate as one big family one year.

planning...
to launch my nanny referral agency early to mid-March. Fingers crossed everything runs smoothly and to plan.

drinking...
green tea (lots of it).

listening to...
Alexander say good night to all his toys. It takes forever but is the cutest thing ever.

looking forward to...
Wednesday, when I treat myself to a pedicure.

baking...
a Neapolitan layer cake. Will be sharing shortly.

loving...
the few hazy moments before sleep each night.

 

What are you up to in this moment?

Must be so cute to see Alexander say good night to his toys. I am also in a shopping ban this winter. It's quite hard but I try.

Selfridges is my favourite department store in the world. I have heard about the series and I should really watch it too!

Room was the first book my book club read it was a real discussion piece. Sad but moving story isnt it :(

I really like these 'catch-up posts.' I'm reading "Home Front" by Kristen Hannah. We're also getting ready to head toward the beach this week. It's snowing here today. Good luck with your business!

I've heard great things about Mr Selfridge, but I haven't seen it yet. Maybe after I finish Downton Abbey... :)
