Looking back at last week where I managed to both do some reading and get out into the big wide world.... What I finished: I managed two this week, a bit of entertaining true crime and an engrossing mystery Alice Diamond and the Forty Elephants: Britain's First Female Crime Syndicate by Brian McDonald I was … Continue reading My Week – 15 May edition (just a wee bit late)
A quick look back at what turned out to be a very quiet week in which nothing much happened but somehow I still needed to sleep a lot..... What I finished: Only one book this week but it was totally absorbing. Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer came to my attention because I … Continue reading My Week – 8 May edition
How did we get halfway through April without me posting anything (yes, I know my posting "schedule" is always erratic at the best of times)? I'll tell you why - coming down with the dreaded lurgy, that's why. Saying that, I should make it clear that I am not talking about Covid, just your common … Continue reading April so far…..
It has been a much quieter week than I had intended. Last Sunday I went to the first of three planned screenings at the London Film Festival, and saw the new Edgar Wright film Last Night in Soho (which I loved btw) but due to Life Happenings, I didn't make it to the other two. … Continue reading My Week – 17 October edition
It has been a very quiet week chez Bride, partly because I've been feeling a bit under the weather and consequently lethargic, which has meant watching YouTube videos and sleeping. That also means not much reading, though I did manage to finish The Eleventh Day which I mentioned in my post last week. Photo by … Continue reading My Week – 26 September edition
I think that I may be coming out of my reading slump but I'm still a little wary of declaring victory just yet. I've also made decisions on my backlog of reviews and I've decided to dump the lot - the long list is making me anxious which is something I don't need right now, … Continue reading No more looking back…..
Otherwise known as a better late than never post! Last week we had so much rain but I have turned into a person who says that "at least it's good for the garden" - what have I become 😀 ? I also had my second Covid-19 vaccination and all is well. My arm was a … Continue reading My Week – ending Sunday 9 May
Part of me is thinking "How is it nearly May?", but the other part of me, the one who was out in our tiny back garden today (Sunday) planting in the warm sunshine, was convinced that we are well into late spring! This is a good thing. Photo by Michael Dziedzic on Unsplash And, despite being a little … Continue reading Looking back on my week, ending 25 April
We've been graced with beautiful sunny weather over the past few days which is guaranteed to lighten my mood, but last week didn't start that way. On Monday 12th we woke up to sleet, of all things. Anyway, despite that the signs of spring are increasingly evident, and the photo here shows the view as … Continue reading Updating my week (ending 18 April)
It's been a pretty good month all in all. The big thing for me was getting my first Covid-19 vaccination, which went well; no side effects of any kind and I'm now just waiting for a date for round two. Not much else has been going on though we've had several warm-ish days which meant … Continue reading Monthly Round-Up | February 2021
