The Week That Was…

It’s been more than a week since I last conversed like this, but with pre-Christmas preparations, Christmas itself, and the New Year…well, the time has gotten away from me. I hope everyone is well and safe and wish the same for your friends and family.

My top festive dish, in both appearance and taste, was the mint ice-cream pudding, which was shaped like a cake because the pudding tin wasn’t big enough for all of us. Cold desserts really are the best when your Christmas day is 46 degrees.


Joke of the week:


What I’ve been watching:

It’s holidays and it’s hot out, so that means TV watching when I’m not reading. I’ve whipped through The Crown, which I really enjoyed with the new cast. I’ve also watched Virgin River, which was surprisingly engrossing, given it’s based on a Mills and Boon published book series, which really isn’t my sort of usual read, but it has been long established that my viewing habits often differ vastly from my reading ones. One thing I have sitting ready to watch but am yet to press play on is The Goldfinch. It never aired in my local cinema, much to my disgust, so I’ve had it on a digital pre-order and it hit my movie library on Christmas day! Just need to settle in with it now. I have also finally been able to buy a copy of My Brilliant Friend and Sanditon is on my watch list as well.


Book(s) of the week:


What I read last year:

My son saw this pop up on Instagram and wouldn’t let me get away with my usual conservative 100 book reading goal on Goodreads. He had some rather outlandish figures he was trying to get me to aim for but we met in the middle with 130 books. I really should consider blocking my children on social media, the little busy-bodies.


What I’m reading right now:


Until next week…β˜•πŸ“šπŸ˜Š
