Holidays…farewell my dear friends. All good things must come to an end. Back to work next Tuesday after a long weekend for the Queen’s birthday – thank you very much Lizzie! It’s all good though, only 9 weeks until the holidays…the BIG holidays. Say no more.
Joke of the week:
The sacrifices we makes as parents. I took my 13 year old son to see this (at his request – he was a big fan of Chapter One):
I haven’t been that stressed since 1994 when I watched the original ten minutes after reading the book. I like how they retained the original themes of friendship, solidarity, and facing off with your fears. And the cameo by Stephen King was a nice a touch! But yeah, far out, it was scary!
Book of the Week:
It’s a tie this week. I have this one:
And this one:
TV of the week:
I finally finished this. So good and very clever!
I also watched this:
A one season short series based on the novel by Colleen Hoover of the same name. I really enjoyed the novel when I read it several years ago and it was good to revisit the story through this TV series. I loved the art in the show. Divine!
Beautiful photo of the week:
Turtles all the way!
Some of these kind of look like pieces of pumpkin though…
Not something that usually characterises my holidays, but we were given a haul of homegrown over-ripe tomatoes and instead of making my usual pasta sauce, I made tomato relish instead. Tasting it hot, it seemed rather sweet and a bit too chilli for my liking. The next day, cold and paired with other food, it was actually quite delicious. Lucky! I have a lot of it to get through.
What I’m reading right now:
Until next week…😊📚☕
