Welcome to The Sunday Post, a weekly meme hosted by Kim the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Grab a cuppa and let me bend your ear (eyes?) for a few minutes with all my bookish news. This Saturday was the global Darkness into Light walk and I feel privileged to be part of such a powerful event.
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
Three Day weekend
Last weekend was our May Day bank holiday, and it was so lovely to have the long weekend. We went to the beach on Saturday, and well wrapped up had a long long walk on the strand. Then a yummy dinner out. On Sunday, we went to a nearby city. There was an international choral event on, so choirs and free performances were staged around the streets. Which made it fun to wander around, and listen to.
Darkness into Light 2019
I try to walk the Darkness in to Light walk every year, as I love that it fund raises for Pieta House, and raises awareness around suicide, self-harm and mental health. Getting up at 3am is torture, but always so worth it. Such an emotional but hopeful event to take part in. And listening to the dawn chorus and watching the dawn rise is magical. I’m here now writing this after coming back from it, and so happy that I made the effort to go out and do it.
