Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A funny week of weather has passed and now its time to reflect back on what we’ve been reading, watching and doing over that time:
This week, I have continued readinghe award-winning, historical-fiction, Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel and the story is only getting juicier as I am currently viewing the downfall of Cardinal Wolsey and the rise of Anne Boleyn… and we all know how that works out! 😅 I also started reading the classic adventure, Kim by Rudyard Kipling, off of my Classics Club list, and the Christian non-fiction, How To Pray by Pete Greig, which is the next read for my church’s book club.
While in my Holy Bible reading, I continued working my way through the gospel of John in the New Testament, but I have again 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 continued watching the new Anglo-Spanish, mystery-thriller series, White Lines, on Netflix; which has been transporting me from dull England to a world of sunshine, parties, drugs, secrets and excess on the stunning island of Ibiza. Nearly finished now, so eyeing up what I might start next… Maybe Series 6 of True Blood? I am missing those sexy-ass vampires!
Then on Friday night, with our customary takeaway (this time Indian), we settled down to watch Will Ferrell’s hilarious, new film Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020), on Netflix; also starring Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens and some real Eurovision stars. A really fun watch – Highly recommended for my fellow Europeans who are missing the real contest. 🤩
As for work, I have been back in school pretty much full time, helping to support one of our new small classes. While still tiring, I am getting used to the new routine now. In my free time, when not too tired, as well as watching TV and reading I have been doing a little jogging; cooking healthy, comfort food; met a friend for lunch on Saturday and finally I enjoyed my well-deserved soak in the bath with a face mask. Later today, I will be popping round to see my grandad and having a takeaway lunch with him in his garden.
While here on the blog, I took part in the weekly memes: Top Ten Tuesday | Most Read Authors and WWW Wednesday | 8th July 2020, and I reflected back on my reading for the first half of 2020 with the yearly meme: Six in Six | My 2020 Edition. Again I had the foresight to pre-schedule all these posts, because I knew I was probably going to be too tired to check my blog this last week! So sorry if I am behind on replying to comments – I will be catching up with them today.
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?
