Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A cooler, damper week has passed and now its time to reflect back on what we’ve been reading, watching and doing over that time:
This week, my reading hit a real slump, as I found myself too tired after work to read for very long or even at allhe award-winning, historical-fiction, Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel, and I am finding I am getting into it now.
While in my Holy Bible reading, I continued working my way through the gospel of John in the New Testament, but I have missed all of my church’s Morning Prayer livestreams, as they are on while I am now getting ready for work.
While on the screen, I finished watching the award-winning mini-series, Chernobyl, about the terrible nuclear disaster of April 1986 – disturbing, but also truly gripping viewing! Then I started watching the new Anglo-Spanish, mystery-thriller series, White Lines, on Netflix; which has been transporting me from dull England to a world of parties, drugs, secrets and excess on the stunning island of Ibiza.
Then on Friday night, with our customary takeaway (this time pizza), we settled down to watch Sky’s Friday premiere of the Disney animated sequel, Frozen II (2019) – a sweet film with some funny moments, but the story and songs are not a patch on the first film. Also, yesterday, I snuggled into bed early, to enjoy a comforting re-watch of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005).
As for work, I have been back in school pretty much full time, helping to support one of our new small classes. I have to admit it has been really tiring, but great to see some staff and pupils; be more physically useful; and to have a bit of normality back. This of course has impacted my free time – As I said above I have often been too tired for much reading this week, but I have continued watching TV; doing a little jogging and relaxing yoga; cooking comfort favourites; and finally I enjoyed my well-deserved soak in the bath with a face mask, last night (my new weekly routine).
While here on the blog, I shared my New Books of June 2020; my monthly round-ups: What I Read In June 2020 and What I Watched In June 2020; AND an announcement for the yearly meme, Six in Six 2020 Edition. Phew! What a blogging week, although I have to admit they were all pre-scheduled posts 😉, which is lucky because I was too tired to check my blog this last week!
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?
