I’M STAYING IN BED: THE SUNDAY TIMES MAGAZINE
Truth be told, I haven’t opened a magazine of my own in months. I think July 2015 was the last time I did, a copy of Mollie Makes. I wasn’t expecting anything amazing from the little magazine that peeked from the centre of the Sunday Times.
Realising I’d better make it quick before the revolt started downstairs, I opened to discover that a good friend of mine was about to be delighted to find Jeremy Clarkson writing in the new Life section – and that there was a lot more packed into the pages of the supplement than I imagined.
Firstly I found myself nodding along and smiling to the article on cynicism by Indian Knight, then smiling even more at a piece on the love lives of swans – and as I walked by the pond later in the afternoon and watched a pair of swans together, I felt oddly satisfied that I’d learned something too.
I’ve saved the piece on Dita Von Teese for later – along with noting the quote in bold on on of her interview pages which mentions which colour to paint your walls, and why – and found myself drawn to the photograph of Taylor Swift and her #squad dancing around her.
Most of all though, the visuals got me. My favourite pages by far were those of the ice-fishing huts. The layout, colours, brevity of text – everything about it pleased me. I love snippets of information that make me curious as to the world around me – and I’ve always been fascinating by life on the frozen tundra.
I’m looking forward to enjoying the magazine over the coming weeks – and discovering that I can read it on my iPhone via a handy app is even better.
I’ve saved a few articles to read later – including one on a bear attack – and look forward to making the chili I glanced at before I was called back downstairs for birthday cake. A new Sunday habit has formed for me….and all in the name of research.
That looks like a Sunday morning well spent, I am very jealous! I love the Sunday Times and their new look magazine looks fab 🙂
I think that is a fine tradition and your photos are fantastic!
Perfect Sunday morning!
I really enjoyed that edition of the paper and funnily enough the ice huts were my favourite too.
I think that retiring to bed in the name of research is a brilliant idea!! I always make a beeline for the Sunday Times Style magazine each week – it is my 'must read' every Sunday!
I can only dream of sunday mornings like this…….maybe when the kids are older
I love the Sunday papers – it takes me all week to read them but that suits me fine! x
We usually spend our Sunday afternoons in Cafe Nero with the Sunday paper split between us. Alex gets the main section, Emma the fashion and I always enjoy the magazine. Love your photos!xx
Sounds like the perfect mag for a bit of 'me time' on a lazy Sunday morning!
I can not remember when the last time was I had breakfast in bed or that we bought a Sunday paper!
We usually get the Sunday Times so I look forward to this. Oh for breakfast in bed to have alongside it too!!
ooh, a lovely lazy Sunday … heaven. I'm like you and hardly ever read a magazine unless it's a craft one. Beautiful photo's
I can't remember the last time I read a paper, or had breakfast in bed for that matter!
Oh how lovely to go back to bed with the magazine. I do love a good magazine and I always like the one in the newspapers as they're usually quite diverse. But obviously haven't purchased one in years! Lucky you x
aww lazy sunday sounds good, most sundays we rush round getting ready for church. or failing that the kids don't give us 2 mins to ourselves ol
I do like your approach to research!
