A #shelfiesunday of the shelf behind my bed - these books are all in the waiting-to-be-read pile. The one I'm currently reading is Dave Trott's One + One = Three, a series of case studies around creative thinking and it's fascinating (a well-chosen birthday gift from my husband back in March). Has anyone else read it? I'm also reading Rose Tremain's The Swimming Pool Season on Kindle (prompted by having just finished The Gustav Sonata, which I loved). Random items: these Neal's Yard Remedies to Roll are amazing - they contain a blend of essential oils that you roll onto your pulse points - these two are Relaxation and Nighttime (a gift from my mum - she also gave my daughter the Study blend. My sister uses them too and we decided it's not just the oils that makes them work, it's the Message to Self of actively rolling something on that bears a particular word). Also, Pomi D'Umbria: my favourite scent in the entire world (it's from Italy, made by @initinere.umbria - my parents sent for it as a Christmas gift). I wish it came as a perfume as well as a room fragrance.
I've realised while writing this that the tulips and picture frame are the only thing in this photo I bought for myself - the rest are all gifts from my parents, husband, daughter (vase!) and friends, which makes me feel very lucky indeed.
