A little bit of internet love: Part III

Happy Sunday to all. And Happy June to you as well.

*insert obligatory comment about the year moving too fast*

I would like to provide some lovely Internet Love for you to read on a Sunday afternoon. Just because I'm nice like that, you know?

"I am a jogger, not a runner"via The Guardian made me snort several times reading it. It sums up precisely how I feel and explains why I constantly find myself correcting myself when I refer to myself as a "runner".

In the same vein, I remembered reading this post by Pretty Fit about her experience running this year's London Marathon. I need to constantly remind myself that one bad run doesn't make me a complete failure - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Rachael's new stitchy blog has been making me really feel the urge to put down my crochet hook and get back to my cross stitch tendencies. This post all about her old and new projects really made me yearn to start playing with aida and threads.

Hazel blogged about a mexican lasagne recipe which sounded a) awesome and b) is vegetarian. It has been promptly pinned on Pinterest and it will be definitely making an appearance on my list of veggie meals I'll be making in 2014.

If you ever happen to be in London on a weekday the ever wonderful Cafe Cat has come up with a plethora of things to amuse you - I'm considering booking a day off work just to literally follow her itinerary.

There have been a lot of posts about the recent decisions made about the GCSE English Literature curriculum. Nose in a Book's post about the subject was one of the best that I've read however.

I like to throw in a serious article every now and then just to shake things up for you and this week is no exception. This article from the New Statesman about whether or not certain men's misogyny is a 'private matter' really made my day.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend - I'll be back with a little bit of internet love next week.



  1. Thank you for the mention my love! I have to admit, I i've neglected cross stitching for crochet and vice versa many a time! I struggle at finding the balance between the two because I get head long into a project and neglect everything else!

  2. Thanks for the link! That Mexican lasagne looks tasty. I might just have to try it, perhaps with added chilli.

  3. I'm midway through a cross stitch that I started 2 years ago. I should perhaps finish it. I'll check out Rachael's blog now!

  4. I'm in great company here. Thank you.
    I rather fancy following in Cat Cafe's footsteps myself one random weekday. And I am a part time, reluctant jogger who likes my comfort zone. And sandwiches :)
    Great selection of posts, thoroughly enjoyed!

  5. I've just received a rather fab book about cross stitch which has some great projects in - I've never really tried it but would like to find time at some point.


Go on. Say something. You know you want to...
