Our links roundups are some of my favourite go-to posts for a quiet fifteen minutes with a cuppa – mainly because normally the lovely Annastasia writes them!

My turn today, accompanied by cake (obviously) – I hope you like my selections as much as you usually like hers!

April is not behaving in a suitably April-like fashion – today is the first ray of sunshine I’ve seen for MONTHS. Consequently everyone I’ve seen today has been wearing flip flops, and freezing slowly from the toes up. It’s not quite summer yet.

On the plus side, it’s a month for brisk walks and pub lunches, and if it’s a little too cold to eat outdoors yet – well, there’s always time to learn something new instead!

Blustery April links

  • We’re loving this series of desk-organising tips, which all come with an excuse to get your craft materials out…
  • Sloths. On Business Insider, for some bizarre reason. Couldn’t resist a share – look at their little furry faces!
  • Did you know about the National Cycle Network? I’m totally a fair weather only cyclist, but am looking forward to getting out & about on traffic-free trails – and I’m sure the local drivers are breathing a sigh of relief that me & my lovely vintage style bike will be nowhere near main roads…!
  • Love wax seals? You need one of these.
  • Have you seen the new branding for Battersea dog & cat rescue? The images look like drops of ink – with ears and noses and whiskers!

And of course next week is National Stationery Week – squee! (We’ll be posting stories on 24 April from the London Stationery Show – follow us on Instagram so you don’t miss out!)
