The Latest in my Life
Schools in the UK are currently closed so I’ve mostly been working from home for the last couple of weeks. It’s challenging trying to juggle online lessons with my daughter’s school work, but it’s also nice to be able to get involved with her learning.
It’s also been fun to spend more time with our new kitten, Loki. He has settled in well and our older cat, Mr. Mistoffelees, is now even sleeping next to him on the sofa. It’s a big relief that they’re getting along.
If you’re a regular visitor, you may have noticed I have a brand new layout! I have been working on it for a week or so and finally got around to setting it up today. I’m really pleased with how it came together and feel like it represents me and my interests really well. Please let me know if anything looks strange on your device and I’ll tweak it.
I haven’t started any writing projects yet, but I’ve written my writing goals for the year and set up my writing tracker. Now that I’ve settled into working from home, I’ll start building some daily writing back into my routine gradually.
My daughter and I just finished our first book of the year last night: Enid Blyton’s The Wishing Chair Again. We’ve been reading a couple of chapters a night and she always begs for more. We’ve read all the Faraway Tree stories together and the first Wishing Chair book. She can’t get enough of them!
As an adult, I now recognise that the stories are are quite repetitive and preachy at times. But I enjoy revisiting them for the whimsy and nostalgia.
I’m in the middle of reading Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce. I’m loving the way the main character can communicate with animals. Pure escapism!
I’m currently binge-watching House M.D on Prime for the 2nd or 3rd time. I love how it’s basically a Sherlock Holmes retelling in a modern hospital. Hugh Laurie is such an underrated actor.
I enjoyed the first two episodes of Marvel’s WandaVision. It’s both funny and intriguing and I’m already getting my teeth stuck into all the fan theories circulating around. I’m looking forward to seeing the mystery unravel.
It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
