Second week of the Easter school holidays and it seems to have flown by. Youngest son began working in the bakery department at Coles this week. It seems odd to think that all of my children are not really children anymore. Easter weekend was spent quietly enjoying each other’s company with chocolate, plenty of other food, Pims (for me at least), and hot chocolate laced with a drop of Baileys (for all). There was also a lot of Scrabble. Mid week we changed to Monopoly, The Walking Dead version, and it turns out youngest son is a Monopoly master, beating me at my own game. He’s become addicted to the power now!
Joke of the week comes to you courtesy of my youngest son who set this up and then pranked me by telling me the toilet was smoking. I had visions of vapour and rising sewerage as I raced up the hallway:
What I’ve been watching:
Inevitably, there was going to be more TV than usual. I watched both seasons of Jamestown and am now eagerly awaiting season 3 to air in Australia. It’s currently only on US Prime.
And then I watched this:
I may never recover…
Most of the book and the original film had clearly been blocked from my memory on account of the terror. And now I remember… 😱
Book of the week:
It took a long time and was not without frustration, but I have finished uploading all of our photos from the last 18 years to ‘the cloud’. It is nice having much easier access to these memories, plus of course, that extra ‘back up’.
I’ve also been enjoying quite a few online literary events. How good was watching The Stella Prize online? The literary community are doing brilliantly to adapt so well to the current way of life. It can’t be easy organising things in such a different way, but hats off to all who are working to bring events to life online.
And I made a list. A post about it went up earlier today, but here is the fixed page on my blog with the list of books I feel a need to read (at some stage).
One more joke for the road:
What I’m reading right now:
Until next week… 😊📚☕
