February was slightly surreal! It was a very, very long month despite being the shortest month of the year.
It snowed fairly often – which is unusual for the UK – and it was rather cold too. Winters have been mild for the last couple of years but we got down to -10C a few times!
I spent the month working on my thesis because I have nothing better to do but I’ve also been working on next month’s posts (of which there are many because it’s Women’s History Month), reading books, and watching films. I finally watched some of the films I’ve been planning to watch for ages – Knives Out, Christopher Robin, and The Martian – so I’m happy about that.
Oh, and I made homemade pizza which was a success. Even the dough was homemade! Cooking is the only skill I’ve picked up during this pandemic.
Instead of a normal ‘favourites’ section, I’ve decided to include links to some of the blog posts I found interesting this month.
