Is it just me or has January been the longest month ever? With the weather alternating between freezing and pissing it down, I for one can’t wait for February. (Not that the weather will necessarily be any better, but at least we’ll be edging closer to spring.)

Anyway, here are some fun links to distract you from whatever you’re supposed to be doing.

One woman writes about how she fell in love with winter. Some great tips for making the most of the season.

The moving true story of a couple who decided to take their own lives, rather than succumb to old age.

I need this manifesto of a doer tattooed on the inside of my eyelids.

Speaking of doing things, I’ve signed up for Skillshare. I’ve already saved loads of videos and intend to get started this weekend.

Another thing I’m doing this weekend is decluttering the flat. I’ve started reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying. This advice on creating a lean closet from Goop is also pretty helpful.

We’ve been experimenting with making our own candles (blog posts to follow!) but I don’t think we’ll ever be able to create these at home.

If I still lived in London (sob) I’d definitely be checking out this exhibition.

And finally, for fellow Making a Murderer addicts – the new normcore: Strangcore.
