Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A warm and sunny week has passed and now its time to reflect back on what we’ve been reading, watching and doing over that time:
This week, I finished reading the gripping, gothic romance and family saga, The Loving Spirit by Daphne du Maurier, out in the glorious sunshine, for the upcoming Daphne du Maurier reading week (starting Monday, eek!). I am now all set to continue my du Maurier reading, by going back to where my passion for this author all began, with a re-read of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, and to follow that up with a re-watch of the classic Hitchcock film, too.
Also this week, I continued to dip in and out of the classic, The Professor by Charlotte Brontë and The Favourite: Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough by Ophelia Field. Then in my Holy Bible reading, I finished the book of Acts and I am now working my way through the book of 1 Kings, as well as dipping into Exodus, Luke and the Psalms, as part of my church’s Morning Prayer livestreams.
Only one movie night this week, which was on ‘May the Fourth’ and that was to watch the very disappointing Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker; although as many Youtubers my dad likes have said ‘The Fall of Skywalker’ would be a more apt title! Very sad for such a great saga to end in this muddled mess of a film. Oh well, I will just have to re-watch the originals to cheer me up!
Sadly it continued to be a poor viewing week, as my dad made me watch to the end of the bleak, dull-as-ditch-water, man killing fest that was the third season of West World – How could such a great show fall so far?! Thank God for the fourth season of the supernatural drama, True Blood and the back-catalogue of the British archaeological series Time Team, that has saved my viewing from total disaster. 😅
This week, I was back to working from home full time, but still only for four days, as this weekend was an early May Bank Holiday to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Sadly no street parties to celebrate in my area, however it was a lovely sunny day, so enjoyed spending all day in the garden with my dad. In my other free time, I have continued to relax with books, TV, relaxing yoga; sunbathing; live-streams from my church; jogging and cooking.
While here on the blog, I shared the new review books I have got my hands on, so far, this year; I took part in the weekly meme WWW Wednesday; and, with the end of April and the start of May happening the week before, this week, I shared my round up of my April viewing.
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?
