Sunday Spotlight - 10th November 2013

This week, I’ve been loving…

Unexpected thoughtful post

I really do have some very special friends. This week I was greeted by an Amazon parcel one morning, which puzzled me a bit as I was sure I hadn’t been ordering anything! I opened it to reveal a gift-wrapped DVD set from a friend, with a little message simply saying she had sent it to cheer me up. How lovely :)


I’m always interested in watching documentaries on health and medical issues, so when I saw adverts for this Channel 4 series of programmes on the oldest psychiatric institution (now South London and Maudsley Trust) I set my TV to record it. There have been 2 episodes so far – the first exploring anxiety and the second looking into the world of a psychiatric crisis. I’ve been really impressed with the coverage and I’m hoping it will open people’s minds more to the reality of psychiatric illnesses, and help people to see that it’s not an issue that we should be scared of.

If you’re interested to find out more about the series, take a look at the Channel 4 website 


I’m not quite sure how we got round to Bonfire Night again so quickly, but this week many people celebrated with fireworks and sparklers. My Dad very kindly drove my Mum and I down to our local display, and wrapped up in our hats and gloves, we stood right at the front to watch a beautiful display, before huddling round the bonfire for a little while.

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!
