The Week That Was…

Easter. As we’ve never previously known it, but at least there is still chocolate and plenty of time for quiet contemplation while eating prawns and drinking chilled wine.

My joke of the week is Easter themed:

Everyone is using zoom these days…


In passing:

Just to update you all on my oldest son. Tests came back as positive for glandular fever but he’s not doing too bad. The tonsilitis has cleared up but he’s doing a lot of sleeping, which I understand is to be expected. I figure it’s best just to leave him to it, even if his waking and sleeping schedule is a bit topsy turvy.


Movie of the week:

I needed a break from the real world so I watched this, even though I don’t have young children to use as an excuse for having done so. And it was very good, although, there’s a scene where Elsa belts out a number and the whole combination of song, costume and special effects put me in mind of Eurovision!


I’ve read three ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ reads in a row this week. That must be some kind of jackpot.


Until next week… 😊☕📚

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your son Theresa. Resting is good, and make sure he doesn’t try exercising suddenly when he feels better – just a very gentle, gradual return to more activity. (Speaking as both an ex-GP and as a ex-glandular fever teenage patient!)
    Thanks for the star reviews of the 3 books pictured – am about to read 2 of them and now may have to read the other, too.
    Have a lovely Easter Theresa.

    • Thanks Fiona, wishing you a lovely Easter also. I hope you enjoy the books as much as I did. He seems to have had a few days of feeling better but then last night he was not well, fatigued and sore in his throat again. I expect that it will do this, from what his doctor indicated. Most people who have told me they have had it seem to have been afflicted in the mid to late teenage years. Coincidence, or is it actually more common in that age bracket?


  2. Hi Theresa, good to hear things are looking better for your son, even if it is glandular fever. I see you have given Lauren Chater’s book 5 stars. I really enjoyed The Lace Weaver, so it’s good to see she has followed it up with another winner. Interesting title. I’ll be looking out for it. Hope you all have a Happy Easter.

  3. LOL I watched Frozen 2 with my 15yo son – at his urging 🙂
    I actually didn’t sleep a lot when I had glandular fever though I felt tired most of the time, my brother who got it about 2 years after me at roughly the same age(15) however slept for like 18 hours a day for a few weeks from memory.

  4. LMAO @ that Last Supper pic! Got my fingers crossed for a speedy recovery for your son, glandular fever is the woooorst. Hope the Easter Bunny brought you extra chocolate treats (and extra chilled wine 😉) to help you all cope.

    • I thought you’d appreciate that pic! 😄 Thanks for the well wishes for Brent. He’s very much in an up and down mode at present. Sometimes good, most times like the wind has been knocked out of him.
      Funnily enough, the bunny brought lots of extra little Lindt eggs, chilled wine, and Pims! What a bunny! 😉😂
