Sunday Reflection | 13th September 2020

(The sun peeking through my window this morning)

Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A mostly dry and mild week has passed, and now it is time to reflect on what we’ve been reading, watching and doing over that time:

This week, I’ve sadly not made much progress reading The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley, because I have been too tired of an evening, but really looking forward to getting back to it soon for those promises of a glimpse back to the time of Russia’s first Empress Catherine. However I did manage to start reading the classic adventure, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne.

While in my Hoy Bible reading,  I have continued reading 1 Corinthians in the New Testament, one of the apostle Paul’s collection of letters to the church in Corinth, Greece.


While on the screen, I have been working my way back through season 12 and then season 13 of one of my favourites TV shows: the British archaeological series Time Team. I have also continued watching the new-ish Jim Henderson series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, on Netflix: a beautiful crafted show, that has recreated and expanded on the magical world of Thra.

Then Friday, with our Chinese takeaway, Sky finally had a premiere we wanted to watch! Which was the high-octane, racing-drama, Le Mans 66 (2019) [also known as Ford vs Ferrari (2019)], starring the brilliant duo of Matt Damon and Christian Bale. A great return to form for Sky!


This week, was my first full week back at work, two days without our class working online and three days with them in school, as we are having a phased return. Trying to get back into the work routine, left me too tired to do a lot else this week, except a little reading, journaling and comfort watching. I also managed to do a little yoga each morning and went for a jog yesterday.

While here on the blog, it has again regrettably, been quiet and I have not been able to pop over to your blogs as much as I would have liked. However I did manage to post my round-up posts for What I Watched In August 2020 and 10 Books of Summer Reading Challenge 2020 Wrap-Up. Please check these out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊


Later today, with my grandad away, I am going to spend the day at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre in Leicestershire. For now though, 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? Have you managed any nice days out?

  1. Ooh 20,000 Leagues! i’ll be curious what you think. I read that for the first time a few years ago. And hope your return to school process goes well.

    Be well this week!

  2. I hope you enjoyed your visit to the Bosworth Battle Heritage Centre – the weather was kind to you! I hope your return to school continues to go smoothly. My grandson is now in quarantine as a child in his yeargroup cluster has tested positive for COVID – he was only back at school for 3 days… Take care and stay safe, Jessica.

    1. Thank you so much, SJ – I really enjoyed my visit to Bosworth Battle Heritage Centre and we had glorious weather for it! 😎 I am sorry to hear about your grandson – I hope he won’t be off school for too long. 🙏

  3. Sorry to hear you’ve been so tired. But who wouldn’t be if they where in your shoes?! 😉
    Have a great week and happy reading.

  4. I hope your return to school goes well, without the outbreaks we’re seeing here in the US.

    You’re reading The Firebird? I love that book, nearly as much as The Winter Sea. Kearsley is one of my favorite authors. And 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea — I don’t think I’ve read that since I was a child, but I loved it back then. I should go back and reread it now that I’m grown.

    Have a great week!

  5. How is school after so long time? I think it is alright to take a break from blog world if the real life is busy. Take time to rest.

    1. Well Gayathri, I have only been off work for 6 weeks, for the school’s summer break, as I was previously in helping to look after key worker’s children. But now we have all the staff in and all the children (on staggered days), who haven’t been in since March so it must be much harder for them. Thank you though, it is good to take a break. 😊

    1. Well I have only been off work for 6 weeks, for the school’s summer break, so not that different for me. I was previously in helping to look after key worker’s children. It must be a lot harder for the children and staff who haven’t been in since March.
