It’s that time of the week again. Make yourself a cuppa, and then we’ll sit in a circle, hold hands, and share the best and worst of our week. Maybe we should even sing kumbayah? Then again, let’s not. I have a terrible singing voice.
I’ll get us started…
BEST: This was definitely one of those ‘appreciating the little things in life’ kind of weeks. Things like drinking too much red wine and dancing around my best friend’s bedroom. Like indulging in decadent brunches. Like watching amateur theatre, and finding the actors to be anything but amateur. Like working in a bookshop that holds poetry readings, and having a friend bring me laksa for dinner because I couldn’t leave in the middle of my shift.
Also, I greatly enjoyed mentally planning my Halloween costume for the end of this month. I’m thinking about swapping my usual outfit of something truly monstrous, for something a little more stylish like Jessica Rabbit. What about you?
WORST: The worst (aside from the very serious problems that usually plague my life like, you know, having to wait too long for YouTube videos to download and such) was reading this piece on Mamamia about two babies who were switched at birth, and the difficult decision their mothers had to make when this was discovered. It really put into perspective the things I usually complain about, like leaving essays until the last minute – which is my own fault, anyway.
Here’s what else has been happening around the Mamamia office and on social media this week…

Now over to you lovely people – how was your week?
