The Stationery Geekette book box

At the beginning of the month I won a box from a new, UK based, subscription box, The Stationery Geekette on etsy. Boxes are £15 plus postage and include a book and at least three other items sourced from independent sellers. Subscribers are allocated a 'house' with a list of photo challenges and points awarded. Today my box arrived.

Naughty Royal Mail had apparently had a fight with my box but never mind. All items were still there.

The book was Alice by Christina Henry and will be coming with me to work tonight. I also received a book mark, pen, postcard, snitch charm and stickers which will be going in my planner.

I can't wait to read the book and look forward to seeing what's lined up next for the box club!

Edited to add, have just finished the book and absolutely loved it! A dark twist on the traditional story.

Planner planning

Love these stickers from AdorkableStickers stickers on etsy. These are Big Bang Theory and Firefly themed. I also have Muppets to use at a later date.

The images are designed by Lacey Simpson and she stocks other themes such as Pokémon, Wicked and Harry Potter, all drawn in her own unique style.

Back to the grindstone

It's happened. I have returned to the world of work! My poor brain was going fuzzy and I woke up singing songs from musical toys!
This return to work has been more stressful than the first as Rosalind still wakes twice a night which is an extra thing for Marcus to contend with. Luckily she happy take bottles and so far, goes to bed better for him than me!
Another change is that having returned to roller derby, I'm not sure it's for me right now, at least I the team's current format. If they start a rec league then maybe. I just don't have the time with two little ones right now!!
