This week in links – moving house sucks

Look, I’d love to be all fun and entertaining here in my intro today … but given we moved house today, it’s not going to happen. They’re not kidding when they say moving house is right up there with any of life’s most stressful events. So. Much. Stuff. And keep in mind I am a relentless declutterer. I decluttered in November and I decluttered again last week. And yet … so much stuff.

When we do our final move into our new-house-that-we’re-never-ever-moving-out-of in November, Ant and I have already said we’re going to try our own version of this.

Anyway, enough about me, let’s talk about YOU. And I know that right now, you want nothing more than a good Friday funny. Click here and stay till the end. Trust me, the punchline is worth it!

Meanwhile (probably due to the foul mood I was in because … packing), I got a little ranty this week about Twitter pile-ons. I was on Twitter the day all this horribleness went down, and it was terrible to watch the tsunami of outrage build and build. The worst thing is, this stuff’s become so common now, Jon Ronson (The Psychopath Testwas able to write a book about it.

And finally, I’ve been doing a lot of reading on vulnerability at the moment so I found this piece fascinating. It shows how the ability to go deep fast is apparently the secret to falling in love with anyone.

What’s that? You want a video too? Ok, well Elizabeth Gilbert (who I hopefully won’t be too exhausted to go and see on Sunday) shared this yesterday and while I’ve seen it many times, it’s always a great reminder for us creative folk.
