The Latest in my Life
I returned to work on Monday, and boy was it a shock to the system! After staying up until 3 am and waking up at 10 am most days, I was not quite prepared for the 6:30 am start. But I powered through on coffee and leftover mince pies. My daughter didn’t go back to school until Tuesday, so she spent a day at work with me, colouring and playing with lego.
This weekend, we finally took the decorations down and put them back into the loft. It’s one of my most-hated chores and normally I feel miserable when they come down, but it’s actually refreshing to see the house looking so clean and tidy.
Nothing to report this week, but I did set my writing goals for the year, so that’s something. I have a Zoom meeting with my local writers group on Thursday, which I’m looking forward to.
The winter edition of my email newsletter, Daydreamer’s Digest, will be going out later this month. Please sign up here if you’d like to receive bookish news, deals and giveaways.
I’m currently reading The Maelstrom by Matthew Barnes. It’s deliciously creepy and fascinating.
- The Apprentice has just returned and it’s as hilarious as ever. Where they find these people I do not know.
- I’m enjoying the new series of Call the Midwife, which is perfect cozy Sunday night viewing.
- I’ve been binge-watching my box set of Jonathan Creek, one of my favourite murder mystery shows. Very entertaining and nostalgic.
- We watched Encanto on Disney+ yesterday and I loved it. It’s so colourful and vibrant with lots of catchy songs and a heart-warming story.
