πŸ™ Sunday Reflection | 28th March 2021🌴

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

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Life πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Firstly, I am thrilled to let you know I was able to take the binding off my little fractured finger for good, on Wednesday! Now I just have a few weeks of taking it easy and exercising it, to get my full strength and movement back, as it is currently very stiff and weak. However I can’t stress how wonderful it has been to be able to use my whole hand again and have a shower without having to put a plastic bag on it! πŸ˜…

In other news, I had a pretty good week at work, although the tiredness is starting to set in for pupils and staff alike now – We are definitely all ready for our Easter break! Thankfully, we have just a four-day week to go and hopefully, it will be a fun one, as we enjoy some Easter inspired activities and celebrate the upcoming birthdays of three lads in our form. πŸŽ‰

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Books πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Over the week, I have continued to make my slow but steady way through the turn-of-the-century classic, A Room With a View by E.M. Forster, from my Classics Club list. A wonderful little read that has been transporting my tired mind back to a time of lacy white gowns, societal niceties and grand tours of classical Italy. πŸ›

I have also continued dipping in and out of the fascinating The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places by Neil Oliver, in which I have now reached the 50th place: The Globe Theatre in London, the famous home of William Shakespeare and the Lord Chamberlain’s Men.🎭 As well as my daily HolyΒ Bible readings from the books of Exodus,Β 1 Kings, Hosea, 2 Chronicles, Isaiah and Nehemiah,Β forΒ The Bible Course (from The Bible Society) I am taking part in.

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Β TV & Films Β πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

While not much has changed in my viewing. I have continued my comforting re-watch of series one of the BBC’s fantasy-adventure Merlin (2008), which is loosely based on the Arthurian legends; and I have cracked on with watching the brand new crime-drama Your Honor (2020), adapted from theΒ Israeli seriesΒ Kvodo (2017). Both thoroughly enjoyable watches, but for very different reasons! 😁

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Blog πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Finally, here on the blog was a little quieter than I had planned for: my scheduled review for the classic, chivalric-romance Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott posted on Tuesday as planned, however I had also hoped to finish off my review for the modern-classic suspense Madam, Will You Talk? by Mary Stewart and have that up for you on Thursday, but disaster struck on Wednesday… my WordPress account updated to the dreaded block editor only format! 😱

Okay maybe disaster is a teeny-weeny bit over the top, but still there was no way my poor, boggled mind was going to be tackling it on a worknight. Having properly looked at it yesterday, the block editor is as I feared: complicated and gimmicky. Looking on the positive though, I did manage to cobble this post together and I like the tiled mosaic option for images (as used above). Other than that though, I really don’t like it, but looks like I have to live with it. 😏


For now, that’s all folks! Today, I am looking forward to my first in-person church service this year, as well as a quiet afternoon of reading and blogging. 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! πŸ‘‹

Now in the comments let me know: How you are? What you have been reading and watching? Or please leave a link to your own Sunday post. I love to chat with you all!

  1. This is my first year in a while without a spring break – I left the schools and reentered corporate America – yikes! Glad you all have a rest in sight πŸ™‚ A Room with a View has been on my radar before – I’ll have to check it out.Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week!

    1. Thank you, Becki – I hope this first year without a spring break isn’t too hard for you and that you will have chance to read A Room With a View soon. πŸ™‚

  2. I am thinking I must check out Your Honor.

    And as for Block Editor, I feel your pain! I’ve been using it now for a while (I just scrolled back to check just when it started for me), and it was early October.

    I hardly ever curse at it any more, lol, although sometimes I struggle to get things arranged the way I want. Hang in there!

    Enjoy your week!

  3. That is such good news about your finger! You should see results from physical therapy pretty quickly after starting it. It’s amazing how fast it makes a difference. And, I would love to see The Globe Theater in real life. I didn’t realize it was still standing, but definitely on my must see list. Blessed Palm Sunday to you tooπŸ™

    1. Thank you, Tessa – My finger is feeling loads better and I have almost full movement and strength back now. As for The Globe Theatre, I’m afraid the original, original is long gone, however there is a wonderful replica located as near to the original site as possible. πŸ™‚

  4. A blessed Palm Sunday to you, as well! πŸ™πŸŒΏ

    Thanks to some encouragement from FictionFan, I have figured out how to continue using the Classic editor at WP for most of my blogging. I’m using the new Block on my secular blog for keeping track of books, but for my faith blog (where I post daily, so it’s a bigger deal) and anything else on my secular blog, I’m bypassing it. I don’t always think newer is better!

    Good news about getting the binding off your finger.

    1. Thank you, Kelly 😊 I am also pleased you are still able the Classic WP editor for most of your blogging! For the last couple of months I was also able to use the Classic editor by selecting it in the dashboard, but unfortunately with this latest update my whole dashboard has changed and there is no option other than the awful Block Editor.

      1. When in the Block Editor, there is a place you can choose which block and still get Classic! Look at FF’s post for Red Pill and check out our exchange in the comments.

        1. Oh yeah, I am using the ‘Classic’ block but it is still not the same or as easy to use as it used to be. Why do I need a block at all? Every time I click on it to edit it, it takes me to the bottom of the whole block not where I click… very annoying. Personally, if it’s not broke why ‘fix’ it! πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
