Week 44 / 2016

So much about the  beautiful weeks of autumn, I asked for last week. The whole weekend has been rainy and the weather forecast has already predicted the first snow for next week. But I am looking forward to this winter and I am just going to embrace the cold with lots of tea, citrus fruit and layers and layers of wool. I hope there is going to be some snow and lots of sun so we can go on many winter walks.

To welcome the cold, I celebrated the first cheese fest of the season with some friends who came over for Raclette on Saturday – is there anything better than melted cheese, potatoes, bacon and pickles? Another highlight of the week was the concert & reading by Rocko Schamoni. I really, really need to read more of his books. Also, this song has been stuck in my head for days after the show.

5 Things from last week

Studio Ghibli Characters in real life – This made me smile.

The best smartphone is the one you already own – Douglas Rushkoff reminds us that consumer should demand longevity instead of novelty when it comes to smartphones or other electronic devices and I could not agree more. He also reminds us to love the phone we’re with.

Trainspotting 2 – It’s time to choose life again. This week the trailer for the Trainspotting sequel that is going to be in the cinemas next year has been released and it got me really excited. It also made me realise that the first Trainspotting film is already 20 years old. Oh boy.

The pill is linked to depression – and doctors can no longer ignore it – In the comment is free section of The Guardian, I came across this article about the risks of hormonal contraception that’s really worth reading.

No-Knead Brioche – Have you ever tried to make your own brioche? This recipe by Blossom to Stem seems fairly easy and I immediately noted it down into my recipe book. I will have to try it out soon!
