Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. Another, mostly wet and cold, week has passed and it is time to reflect on what I’ve been doing and how this week has gone.
This week, my reading has continued well. I finished reading the modern, suspense classic, The Moonspinners by Mary Stewart, which helped me escape the miserable weather to the sun-drenched island of Crete, and then a comfort re-read of the wonderful, Regency classic, Persuasion by Jane Austen. I also started reading the dark, atmospheric historical-fiction Her Kind by Niamh Boyce, which shines a light onto the women caught up in the terrifying Kilkenny Witch Trial, in Ireland, and the events that led up to it.
While on the screen, I have continued getting my glitz, glam and sequin fix watching the new series of the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. My favourites last night were Emma & Anton’s beautiful Viennese waltz and poor Alex & Neil’s undermarked tango! I have also been enjoying The Hairy Bikers: Route 66 on the BBC, Jamie Oliver’s Meat-Free Meals on Channel 4 and a re-watch of The Musketeers boxsets on the BBC iPlayer. Then on Netflix I was thrilled to find the final series of the crime drama with a dark, magical twist, Grimm, which I frustratingly missed when first shown on TV.
I am also very pleased to tell you I was able to start my phased return to work on Wednesday! With my back-to-work meeting completed that morning, it has been agreed that I will be going in each morning to help with admin and making resources for a week or so. Then once I have been to see the trauma and orthopaedic specialist again on Friday, I can hopefully start upping my hours. It was really lovely to see my work colleagues and the children – It was very touching to hear I had been missed, like I had been missing them. Also it has done my mood the world of good!
Well that’s it for now, as you can see it was another improved week for me and I look forward to catching up with all of you again next Sunday. Now I am off to get ready to go to our Café Church service at my church. Bye for now!
I’d love to hear from you before you go, so tell me what have you been up to this past week?
