Thank you so much for your get well soon messages over the weekend, everyone! I'm feeling much better today, though I must apologise for not posting last week's Friday Poetry - I was lying in bed through most of Friday, and I'm afraid I didn't want to summon the energy to write a post. But no matter; I am back in action once more, and I can't wait to see what this week brings! To be honest, I didn't do much over the weekend. On Saturday we had an adoption drive for the animal shelter I volunteer at, so I went to help handle the animals. Some of them were adopted, which was wonderful - and we just got three new six week old puppies who were adorable, so they were the stars of the show! But other than that, I mostly lay around all weekend; it was quite relaxing!
It appears I've missed a very important occasion, however - last Thursday was National Poetry Day (though I'm not entirely sure for which country!). For a bit of a belated celebration, click here, where Interesting Literature has compiled some of my favourite poetry quotes from the best poets out there. Other posts I enjoyed this weekend include my dear friend Sarah's beautiful piece on things people don't say about graduation, as well as Daniel's two poems "If Only" & "Admonisher of Dreams". Definitely worth giving them a read!
How was your weekend, lovelies? Hopefully no one got ill - a few of my American friends are down with the flu, so it seems this isn't just in Singapore! Can't wait to chat with all of you. xx
