Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A heatwave 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 started AND finished reading the Christian non-fiction, Wholeness by the award-winning, historical-fiction, Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel, this week.
While in my Holy Bible reading, I continued working my way through the gospel of John in the New Testament, as well as dipping in and out of Judges, Luke and the Psalms, as part of my church’s Morning Prayer livestreams
While on the screen, I finished watching season one of the high-fantasy drama, The Witcher and season two of the historical documentary series, Secrets of Great British Castles, presented by historian Dan Jones; both on Netflix. Now I have switched back to the Sky boxsets on NowTV, to finally watch the award-winning mini-series, Chernobyl, about the terrible nuclear disaster of April 1986. Truly gripping viewing this week!
Then on Friday night, with our customary takeaway (this time Indian), we settled down with a couple of beers to watch Sky’s Friday premiere, which was the wonderfully nostalgic, historical-drama, Downton Abbey (2019). My dad and I were big fans of the TV show, so watching this was like a big comforting hug: just what we needed!
As for work, I was physically in work four days this past week: cleaning and decluttering classrooms on Monday; a health and safety briefing on Tuesday; and then my new class was up and running Thursday and Friday. It was all rather tiring, but it was great to feel more physically useful and to get back to a bit of normality.
In my free time I have been reading; watching TV; jogging and doing relaxing yoga; cooking; cleaning; and finally enjoyed another long soak in the bath with a face mask, last night (I think this needs to become a weekly routine). As for my cooking, I tried a new recipe this week, which was Mary Berry’s King Prawn and Broccoli Stir-Fry, from her Quick Cooking cookbook. Super delicious and quick to make, although had to swap out Black Bean sauce for Oyster as the shops were sold out, will definitely be making this again!
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? What have you been doing now restrictions are starting to ease?
