Hello everyone and a blessed Sunday to you all! 🙏 I hope this post finds you all well. Another bitterly cold week has flown by and now it is time to reflect on what we’ve been doing, reading, and watching over that time.
This week, work has continued to be a tough and busy blur of lessons, high staff absence, daily testing, cold weather and a lot of improvisation! So of an evening, I mainly just got myself home, fed and into bed early with a hot water bottle, a mug of warm oat milk and my cat. ☕
However, with my upcoming birthday on Monday, this weekend I got to enjoy several outings. First, on Saturday, I went for lunch at our nearest TGI Fridays with a friend, followed by a nice shopping trip; which may have involved new books! Then, today, I also went out for lunch to a lovely, local pub for a meal with family and friends. 💕
Sadly, even with all those nights in, I haven’t been able to make much progress with my current read: the dual-narrative historical-fiction, The Lost Diary of Venice by Margaux Deroux (2020), in which we have been able to explore late Renaissance Venice, through the eyes of the artist, Giovanni Lomazzo. 🖼
However, when not just falling asleep super early, I have been able to dip into my Holy Bible and my beautiful new book, Celtic Daily Prayer: Book One by the Northumbria Community (2015), which I am hoping to get into a routine with to improve my scripture reading and prayer life. ✝
As for my viewing, for a second week in a row, except for some of the videos of my favourite YouTubers, I have pretty much watched nothing new! 😱 Instead I have finished off an enjoyable re-watch of series one and started series two of the British supernatural drama, A Discovery of Witches (2018-2022). This is so I am fully prepared to watch the third and final series, which has just been released on Sky/NOW TV. 🧙♀️
In addition, I have enjoyed comforting re-watches of two favourite films. First, the classic coming-of-age comedy, Clueless (1995); which was inspired by seeing Paul Rudd in Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021), who for me will always be the adorable Josh. Also the family fantasy adventure, Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 (2010); as I wasn’t able to finish the series off over the holidays. 📽
Finally, last but least, here are the one post and one review I shared with you over the last week:
A lower amount than I had hoped, but dear reader you do seem to have really enjoyed them, which is the main thing. Plus I have more planned for the coming week! Please check any of these out, if you haven’t already! 😊

For now, that’s all folks! 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! 👋
