Podcast Round-Up

I have really enjoyed listening to podcasts, lately.

UnknownI love the Big Boo Cast by Big Mama (Melanie Shankle) and Boo Mama (Sophie Hudson). Listen to it online here or find it on iTunes and add it to your podcast line up. They blog at TheBigMamaBlog and BooMama respectively.

They’ve written some of my favorite recent reads, as well:


In the same vein, I love this insightful, funny author/ speaker: Annie Downs! Check out her podcast online here or on iTunes. She blogs at AnniefDowns.com and has written these faves:

Last, but not least, I’ve just discovered the Living Out Loud podcast with Alley and Amanda. Several friends have recently been guests on this podcast – Mary Brantley, Cathy, Rachel, and Sarah – totally worth a listen! Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 9.59.17 AM

What do you listen to in the car? Any Podcasts you love that I missed?

The delightful problem of a good book

The delightful problem of a good book is that I can’t put it down. I have read 5 such books since we’ve been settled in our flat. Two weeks tomorrow and one MONTH in London!! Time’s flying! I find I read constantly while out and about – even (and especially) at home.

Herein lies the second problem: nothing to read on the tube/ bus. I have seriously started out my day, realized I have nothing to read because I’ve finished my recent read, stopped into a bookshop on the way to the tube, only to repeat the process two days later.

A delightful problem indeed. However, not sure my sweet, caring, handsome hubs appreciates me buying several books every few days, what with both of us on the verge of purchasing many heavy books of the graduate degree persuasion… Perhaps these minor buys – like my lunches out – will remain a mystery to him. Yes, he reads my blog…!
