Well, hello there! Another Thursday is upon us. The weeks seem to go by faster and faster. Sigh.

New stories of Thornbury Castle to be told in book. This is really excited and I have to get my hands on a copy of this book. I stayed at Thornbury and it was a dream come true for me.

Retaining the royals: why has the British monarchy survived – and thrived?

The 19 ‘Extroverted’ Behaviors That Annoy Introverts The Most. This is so me. I am the biggest introvert and sometimes (all of the time) I want my extrovert friends to just leave me alone. Am I awful?

I am hunting for a new 2020 planner. I want something that’s better than my 2019 planner because I need monthly, weekly and daily break-down pages, plus goals/anniversary/days to remember pages that aren’t at the end of the planner, but near the beginning of each month. And I don’t want to spend a fortune on it. I’m appalled that planners cost as much as $60.00. What? Anyway, do let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions for me to consider. But during my planner research, I stumbled across Passion Planner and they have free PDFs, if you’re interested. (Passion Planner is over the top for me, so I’m not going for that one either.) UPDATE: I found my 2020 planner!

Speaking of planners, these Washington Post articles on planners were interesting to read. Who knew the planner business was a multi-million dollar business? A journey through the fancy day planners that promise to fix our broken, millennial lives and It looks like an ordinary calendar. But Passion Planner aims to be the cure for millennial angst.

How to Collect Antique Jewelry. I love jewelry, new and old. This was a fun and interesting read by the Garance Dore team.

How exciting! Fortnum & Mason has a new tea, Celebration Blend tea. “A jubilant blend of strong Assam and hint of fragrant Jasmine, our new Celebration Blend tea is just the cup for every hooray-worthy moment, and only the beginning of another perfect teatime.”

Happy Birthday, Prince Albert! Monarchy’s moderniser: Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

I hope you have a great day! And do leave me a comment if you use a planner that you can’t live without! xoxo, Jane

  1. Ha, I thought I was the only book blogger who shared links not specific to books, haha. These are some fun links. As a fellow introvert, I definitely bookmarked the one about extroverts being annoying 😂

    1. Ha! Now we can be partners in crime. Yes, I like reading a variety of articles online and I thought it would be fun to share. I will look out for your links!! It’s tough to be an introvert in an extrovert world, isn’t it?
