“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.” – John Keats

Hello and welcome to Sunday. Here’s a round up of things that have caught my eye online in recent weeks:

Stylist introduces us to three women who are happy to be child-free by choice.

I’m pleased to hear that the Design Museum is getting a new home.

Women apparently need more sleep than men.

Liz Kendall has suggested that there should be an “Auntie’s Day” for childfree women.

The Guardian has the secret to spring cleaning – don’t just organise your stuff, get rid of it.

For anyone else kick-starting a new healthy regime this spring, four tips from nutrition experts. I agree with them all!

The Independent has a list of the five most exciting feminist books in 2016.

A study has found that people who like spending time alone are more intelligent.

I really enjoyed this piece by Sarah Kasbeer: How I Learned Being Childfree Was a Part of my Identity. Spot on.

Finally, this week’s video from the School of Life is titled In Praise of the Quiet Life.
