Lately I've been



Eating: mostly vegetarian. I used to be the biggest meat eater, I would rarely go a day without eating meat but after going vegetarian for three weeks in India and discovering Anna Jones' amazing A Modern Way to Eat I'm really enjoying only having meat occasionally.
Drinking: gallons of tea as I'm trying to give up coffee (again!). It's not that I get any bad side effects but I was finding it really addictive and didn't like how reliant I was getting on it. There's so much contradicting information about coffee and whether it's good for you or not!
Listening: to podcasts. I drive an hour to work and back each day and was getting really bored just listening to the same old songs on the radio so I'm really happy to have discovered Serial. At first I was disappointed with how it finished but then I found out it was a real story which makes the ending more understandable. I'm currently working my way through the back catalogue of TED Radio Hour and it's so interesting!  I would love to hear podcast recommendations if you have any.
Daydreaming: as always, of warmer, sunnier, exotic climes. 
Struggling: to finish The Secret History (by Donna Tartt). I've heard so many people rave about this book - am I the only one who just doesn't get it? Maybe I need to persist and keep on reading to the end...
Feeling: like I need to improve, take  risks and get out of my comfort zone a bit more.
Loving: yoga. I've said this before but I feel SO good after doing a bit of Yoga With Adriene.
Watching: Poldark. I love a bit of period escapism!
