I thought it would be nice to make a little update with things I’m looking forward to this month and next month. These days I’m going to try out a new subscription box and I can’t wait to share my views on the blog. But, this post is about other things I’m looking forward to.
First of all, I’ve received yesterday a Northern Soap that I’ve ordered after seeing the review Sarah did on her blog, salocainwonderland. I’m going to take some pictures of it and I might do a review myself, if I fancy it. I was looking for a deep cleanser and this one looks great. I’m a bit busy at the moment, so I might start using it next week.

My husband and I booked tickets for International Jousting Tournament at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds. The event will take place over the Easter bank holiday weekend. We’ve got our tickets for Easter Monday. It should be so much fun. I can’t wait for it.
This weekend the new F1 starts. I’m really looking forward to it, hoping that this year Mercedes will not dominate as last year. Recently I’ve been watching Formula E and that proves to be very exciting indeed. It’s starting to grow on me more and more. Who knows, if nothing changes in F1, I might be more into Formula E. Also, I hope that Formula E will not change and become more like F1, with lots of penalties, like the one Sam Bird received in the last race, for doing something that everybody else was doing, but that had unfortunate consequences. From my point of view, if there isn’t an intent to take someone out, then there shouldn’t be a penalty.
I recently bought 5 books and I can’t wait to start reading them. As it seems I can’t stop myself from borrowing books, I might not start reading these next weeks, but I will read at least 3 of them soon.
The books I’ve bought:
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Republic by Plato
Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management: Abridged edition by Isabella Beeton
Last, but surely not least, is the home office that we are in process of renovating at the moment. It takes a lot of time, but we want everything to look great, so is time worth spending. Of course, any kind of renovation comes with a bit of a hassle and unexpected problems, like buying some new sockets and seeing that despite being bought in the same day, from the same shop, by the same supplier, their colour is different and we’ve had to go back and return them. But, overall, the things are moving forward and there is progress every single day. I’m very pleased with that.
