Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. In defiance of the ‘pandemic-that-shall-not-be-named’ it has been another, gloriously, sunny week! Now its time to reflect back on what we’ve been reading, watching and doing over this lovely week:
This week, I have continued to enjoy reading out in the garden, where I finished reading the hilarious Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett, another fantastical Discworld adventure with the witches. Then I plunged myself into the moving historical-fiction, Jane Seymour, The Haunted Queen by Alison Weir, the third book in Weir’s ambitious six-book Tudor Queens series.
Also this week, I started reading the posthumously published classic, The Professor by Charlotte Brontë, my result for The Classics Club latest Spin event, and I read a little more of the weighty tome, The Favourite: Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough by Ophelia Field. Then in my Holy Bible reading, I have been dipping into Exodus, Colossians and the Psalms, as part of my church’s Morning Prayer livestreams.
Whilst on the screen, I finished watching the second season of the Welsh crime-noir series, Hidden, on the BBC iPlayer. After which, I started watching the fourth season of the supernatural drama, True Blood, from Now TV’s boxsets, because let’s face it I couldn’t keep away from those sexy-ass vampires for very long. 😉
No new films watched this week, but I still enjoyed a couple of movie nights, from the comfort of my own sofa with a takeaway, to re-watch the brilliant Lord of the Rings films: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) and The Two Towers (2002), and I’m hoping we might have time to watch the final film later today. 🧝♀️
This week, saw me return to work, albeit for the most part working from home, however I was in work for one day this week with the key worker’s children we have at our school. I also made the featured photo, on the left, as part of our class challenge to make the St George’s flag in a creative way for St George’s Day . Meanwhile, in my free time, I have continued to relax with books, TV, relaxing yoga; sunbathing; live-streams from my church; jogging and cooking.
Now that’s all folks! I look forward to catching up with you all next Sunday. Where ever you are in the world, I hope you and your loved ones are well: staying healthy and happy. God bless and bye for now! 🙏
Now over to you: I’d love to hear what you have been reading? Have you watched anything good? And how have you been spending your time in isolation?
