Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A wet week has passed and now let’s reflect on what we’ve been doing, reading and watching over that time.
Well it has thankfully been a much calmer week than last at school, because our headteacher has taken the cautious decision to slowly increase pupil numbers at school, based on risk assessments, social distancing and parent’s wishes, too; which I think is a good idea. So my small group of pupils has only increased by two. In other news, my cousin had her little baby girl on Wednesday (just call me Auntie Jessica) 👶; I enjoyed a well-needed fun Zoom catch-up with some Christian friends on Friday night 💻; and today is my birthday! 🥳
It has also been a great week of reading for me, where I finished reading the stunning historical-fiction, The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick: the gripping tale of the loves, losses and adventures of Alison Banestre and her cousin, Mary Seymour, which slipped between present day and 1557, and had a dash of the supernatural for good measure, too! 🌳 Now, I have just started reading the cosy crime caper, The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman, about a group of amateur sleuths in an upmarket retirement village. 🔎
Alongside these, I also finished dipping in and out of my new cookbook, The Green Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer, an interesting collection of vegan and vegetarian one tray recipes, which got me salivating and I am looking forward to trying some of them out soon! 🥘
While on the small screen, after a re-watch of series one, I moved on to the newly released series two of the supernatural drama, A Discovery of Witches, about a world where witches, vampires and demons live secretly among us, based on Deborah Harkness’s All Souls trilogy. 🧙♀️ So far, so good! I have also continued dipping in and out of Netflix’s travel and health documentary series, Down to Earth with Zac Efron, which I am continuing to find fascinating and well Zac Efron… I included a photo of him this time – You’re welcome! 😉
For now, that’s all folks! Today will be a quiet day of being pampered, reading, blogging and watching my church’s online service. 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 I’d love to hear from you: How you are? What you have been reading and watching? What nice things have happened this week for you?
