Hello friends and a blessed Palm Sunday to you all! 🌿🙏 I hope this post finds you all well. An atypical April week of bright sunshine, rain showers and crisp mornings has passed by for me; and now it is time to share what I’ve been doing, reading, and watching over that time.
This week my colleague, our form’s tutor, returned to school after being off sick with Covid for two weeks! It was so lovely to have her back and it was just in time for some charming end of term activities, which included: making Easter cards, a treasure hunt, a decorated eggs competition, and a celebration assembly. 👩🏫
Outside of school, I worked one evening at the charity youth group, where we enjoyed live music from the in-house band, and another evening I was able to go to my dance class, which is always a good giggle. Otherwise I have mainly been resting and chilling at home, as I have been very tired and so ready for the school’s Easter holiday. 🥚
I have continued to make slow but steady progress through the weighty Victorian classic tome, Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens (1855), which was my result for The Classics Club’s 29th Spin event. This is a quirky and delightful tale of little Amy Dorrit and her family in the Marshalsea debtors’ prison, which feels almost like a re-read, as I have such fond memories of the BBC’s 2008 TV series, starring Matthew Macfadyen and Claire Foy. 🏛
Throughout the week, I have also been dipping in and out of the Christian non-fictions, the Celtic Daily Prayer: Book One by the Northumbria Community (2015), a collection of Celtic prayers and readings, and Forgiven by Time Chester (2022), a Lenten guide of the Book of Hebrews which was given out at my church. As well as my Holy Bible. ✝
I again didn’t start watching anything new this week, however I did enjoy watching a couple more episodes of series one of the classic, American sci-fi television drama, Star Trek. In particular I found the wonderfully eccentric ‘Shore Leave’ and ‘The Squire of Gothos’ episodes highly amusing, as we Kirk and crew dealing with a samurai warrior, a knight in shining armour, a tiger and a childish Machiavellian tyrant in his make-believe Earth!
Finally, last but not least, here are the posts I was able to share with you, over the past week:

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! 👋
