Hello everyone, I’m sorry this post comes to you belatedly – I was away over the weekend – but I do hope this post still finds you all well and here’s what I’ve been doing and how this cold, wet week has gone.
This week, my reading has continued well. I finished reading Jane Austen’s unfinished novel, Sanditon (all ready to watch ITV’s TV series), a good if teasingly cut-short read, and also the short but interesting non-fiction, Stalin: A Very Brief History by Mark Black, which taught me the basics of Stalin’s life and rise to power. Meanwhile I have made good progress into the mystery-thriller The Virgin of the Wind Rose by Glen Craney.
While on the screen, I have continued enjoying the BBC’s highly anticipated, fantasy drama, His Dark Materials, and I finished watching the BBC’s new WWII drama, World on Fire and ITV’s new, period drama, Sanditon. Also I started watching Sky’s trippy, historical drama, Britannia II and Sky Atlantic’s lavish, new period drama, Catherine the Great. But sadly with being away, I missed seeing the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing live.
But missing Strictly was totally worth it for the wonderful weekend I spent away at Otford Manor, deep in the Kent countryside, for a reunion with some of the new friends I made on my holiday to the Amalfi Coast this summer. We had a great time catching up; playing silly games; having a bonfire; and enjoying worship and Bible studies. It was such a wonderful time, it was hard to come away and be parted from the gang again. Hopefully there will be more reunions to come!
Well that’s it for now, as you can see it was a busy but lovely week for me. I look forward to catching up with all of you, probably next Monday, as I am away again next weekend. Bye for now!
Now over to you: Tell me what have you been reading, watching and getting up to this past week?
