Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all. I hope this post finds you all well. A proper wintery week of rain, ice, snow and Storm Christoph has passed, and now it is time to reflect on what we’ve been doing, reading and watching over that time.
Well my week got off to a bumpy start, as I was told by NHS Track and Trace I needed to self-isolate for two days! Thankfully work were able to switch roles around, so someone covered me in the classroom and I took over their online learning duties from home, and with the oddly short duration of my isolation, I was back at work by Wednesday and everything ran smoothly from then on. In other news, I found out on Tuesday that my friend gave birth to a little girl on my birthday (Sunday 17th)! 🎉
It has been another great week of reading for me, where I finished reading the cosy crime caper, The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman, about a group of amateur sleuths in an upmarket retirement village. A wonderfully eccentric and quintessentially British murder mystery! 🔎 Now I have not long started a re-read of the historical, romantic classic, Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott, that chronicles the adventures of the Saxon protagonist, Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe. I am looking forward to rediscovery this classic gem. 🏰
Yesterday, I was also able to join my church’s online Morning Prayer session, where we read Bible passages from Psalms, Hosea and 1 Corinthians.
While on the small screen, I finished dipping in and out of Netflix’s travel and health documentary series, Down to Earth with Zac Efron; a really fascinating show, which I have recommended as a class watch for the lads we currently have in school, and well Zac Efron… 😉 And I have continued watching 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! 🧙♀️
For now, that’s all folks! Today will be a quiet day of reading, blogging, cooking (I have a new recipe I want to try out) 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? How has work and life been for you?
