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.
💜💜💜 Life 💜💜💜
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! 😅
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. 🎉
💜💜💜 Books 💜💜💜
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. 🏛
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 Holy Bible readings from the books of Exodus, 1 Kings, Hosea, 2 Chronicles, Isaiah and Nehemiah, for The Bible Course (from The Bible Society) I am taking part in.
💜💜💜 TV & Films 💜💜💜
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 the Israeli series Kvodo (2017). Both thoroughly enjoyable watches, but for very different reasons! 😁
💜💜💜 Blog 💜💜💜
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! 👋
