Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. Another wet and miserable 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 have been reading the dual-narrative, historical-fiction, The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley, that has been helping me escape the busy-ness of life, in a tale of love, courage, redemption, psychic abilities and the Jacobite rebellion. ⚔
While in my Hoy Bible reading, I have headed back to the Old Testament, to work my way back through the book of Job, about the testing of a good, pious man by Satan, with my new perspective I have got from reading The Bible Jesus Read by Philip Yancey.
While on the screen, I have finished re-watching season 14 of the British archaeological series Time Team and I have continued watching the newest series of the science-fiction, historical drama, Project Blue Book, that is taking me back to the 1950’s for some more UFO investigations. I also got hooked on and binge watched ITV’s three-part drama, Des, starring David Tennant as the serial killer Dennis Nilsen.
On Friday night, with another disappointing offering as Sky’s premiere, we instead binge watched season 1 of the British police drama, Criminal: UK, on Netflix, with our pizza takeaway. That same night I also watched Netflix’s true-crime documentary, American Murder: The Family Next Door, which tells the story of the shocking 2018 Watts’ family murders.
At work things have continued to run smoothly, even though it is still pretty full on each day, with only a few dramatic blips along the way: as a member of staff and several pupils were sent home with high temperatures. In my spare time, I managed to do a little reading, easy viewing and cooked some more warming, comfort dishes: that included lamb Ragu and sag aloo Korma (pictured). 🥘 Also, yesterday, I enjoyed a bracing walk around Draycote Water, Warwickshire and a nice stop off in the café, when it started raining! ☔
While here on the blog, it has again been regrettably quiet. However I was able to share my round-up post: What I Watched In September 2020 and take part in my favourite weekly meme: WWW Wednesday | 7th October 2020. Please check this out if you haven’t already. Thank you! 😊
Later today, my grandad will be coming round for Sunday lunch – I am cooking gammon and parsley sauce. 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?
