Good morning everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. My first week back at work as been a hard one, with tiredness; getting back into routine; and on and off sinus problems. It was lovely to reach the weekend and a well-deserved rest. Here is what I’ve been reading, watching and doing over that time:
My reading this week has been so-so. I have continued to dip in and out of the faith non-fiction, No God But One: Allah or Jesus? by Nabeel Qureshi and the science-fiction thriller, Cold Fire by Dean Koontz. However I have been mostly absorbed in my new cookbook, Quick Cooking by Mary Berry, which my stepdad won through the Postcode Lottery. There are lots of lovely recipes in this that I am excited to try.
While on the screen, I have finished watching the new, dark take on A Christmas Carol (from the creator of Peaky Blinders) on the BBC iPlayer. After which I binge watched the third series of the epic, gritty historical drama, The Last Kingdom, on Netflix. Also, before our month of Sky movies came to an end, my dad and I watched the science-fiction thriller, Mortal Engines (2018) and the fun, spooky adventure, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018); both on Friday night while we enjoyed a Dominoes takeaway and a glass of red wine.
As I said above, this has been a hard week back at work and with my sinuses, however it hasn’t all been doom and gloom. I have enjoyed seeing my work colleagues and the kids again at school. I was also pleased to see all the ladies from my dance class, as we had our first lesson back after the Christmas break. Finally, I have been kind to myself: taking time to rest; getting my nails done; getting my hair cut; ordering some new gym wear and a dress for my friend’s wedding; and booking a weekend away in May, with some of the friends I made on my Amalfi holiday.
So not an easy week, but still a good one, especially after a restful weekend. I look forward to catching up with you all next Sunday. Bye for now!
Now over to you: Tell me what have you been reading, watching and getting up to this past week?
