Unlike previous weeks Sunday didn’t come quite as out of the blue for me. Much to my surprise, I actually have more links to share than I expected. The week didn’t go as planned – okay, I didn’t really plan for it to go any certain way other than ‘normal’ [whatever that means] – but life threw me several curveballs. Which led to less time to read blogs but – long story short – here they are: some of my favourites from the past week. I’d be happy to hear your thoughts on any of them if you’ve read them before already or afterwards.
