The Week That Was…

How quickly I fell out of the routine of writing my weekly updates. The last one was in early September, right before my son had his knee surgery. We’re now at the sixth week of his recovery and hoping that he will be able to get off the crutches and back to normal living. Six weeks of no weight bearing at all is a long time for an active teenager. It’s been a long time for me too, but enough said about that.

It’s safe to say that the ‘silly season’ has arrived and for those of us working in retail, it’s all a bit crazy from here on in. At least the days go fast, even if you are shattered by the end of each one.


Joke of the week:


What Zeus has been up to:

Our Zeus is booked in for surgery Monday week. You can see in these photos, he has two tumours that need removing, one on the top of his head and one on his top eyelid, towards the outer corner of his eye. He’s had the one on the top of his head for a couple of years, but it’s gotten larger in recent months and then the one on his eyelid appeared, and that one is really bothering him too, the poor pooch. Hopefully they can remove both without any dramas and he can go back to being his usual slouchy self without the hassle of scratching these things all the time.


What I’ve been watching:

I’m not entirely feeling the romance of Virgin River that other fans seem to be so caught up in. Aren’t we past the whole ‘toxic man-child’ trope when depicting male romantic leads? Apparently not…

The Batman lived up to my expectations. I liked a lot about this film and disliked nothing. I felt it channelled the original Batman in a lot of different ways and Robert Pattison, while playing a younger and more grunge inspired Bruce Wayne than previous adaptions, delivered a terrific performance. Not everyone agrees with me about this, but I’ve let them know that they are wrong…


What I’ve been reading:

Both of these were a solid four star read.


Until next week…

    • Yes, he’s a bit of a sook too, not too sure how he’s going to be afterwards. But it’s irritating his eye a lot and it’s gotten to the point where I’m wiping it so much he actually knows the drill, so to speak. It will be good for him to no longer have such an irritated eye-ball. He knocks the one on his head quite often too. It’s nothing now to come home from work and see his face and head with blood on it from both tumours so I’ll be glad for an end to that.


  1. I love the Pompeii joke!

    I watched the first two seasons of Virgin River but didn’t go back for the third as it seemed to just be repeating the same story each season, though added in some intrigue at the end of s2 from memory.

    I finished The Watcher on Netflix last night and was underwhelmed….

    • Were you? That’s good to know because I’ve been wavering about The Watcher. The trailer was compelling. I think I watch Virgin River out of habit now, mostly. One woman’s pregnancy has gone on for several seasons…it’s a bit soap opera-ish, tbh.
