This Week....

I'm reading...

I didn't find much time to read at all this week. I started a couple of books but only got to read a few pages of each of them. Hopefully I can make some progress this week.

The first book I started was Moving Pictures by Terry Pratchett which I am reading for March Magics. It only took a couple of pages for me to start smiling. I really should Pratchett more often. The packaging of this particular edition surprised me a little. There is no description at all. Not on inside covers or back covers. Maybe that is a sure sign that you have made it? 

The other book I started was The Codebreakers by Alli Sinclair, the story of Australian code breakers during World War II. I need to finish this as I can't extend my library loan again.

I'm watching.....

Another week of not watching a lot I'm afraid.


Last week was the first time I had worked back in the office for several months. This week I ended up working two days in the office. We have just moved into a new location. It is an existing building that has been reimagined. The spaces and functionality are very impressive. Not enough to convince we mtaht I need to go in more than once a week, or at maybe twice at a stretch.

The highlight of this week was going to see Hamilton on Friday night. We were supposed to go to Sydney last year to see it, but that got cancelled. We already have tickets for May, but I thought that we would put our name into the $10 ticket lottery and we won! And the seats - front row! We will still go again in May, but I think after that I might put our names in again and see if we can get seats again. 

On Saturday night we went to see An American in Paris. Now, I am not sure if we would have enjoyed it more if we hadn't just seen Hamilton, or maybe it just wasn't the right event for us. It was nice, but we didn't love it.

I've linked this post to It's Monday, what are you reading? as hosted by Book Date


  1. I understand weeks when you don't do a lot of reading or watching. That has been my life lately.

    I hope all goes well with your return to the office...

    1. Sometimes it just happens like that right Deb?

  2. Sounds like you had a good week despite not finding much time to read. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. You definitely can have a good week even when there is no time to read Kathy.

  3. I hope you enjoyed Hamilton! You got quite a bargain - I will not tell you how much we paid to see it on Broadway but it would have covered a LOT of books.

    1. Love, love, loved it CLM! We have full price tickets to see it again in May. Those tickets were much more expensive!

  4. It's hard to top Hamilton!

  5. I have weeks like that where I don't do much of anything. It's fine!

  6. i love love love Pratchett and have read all of his books over and over. Such a comfort read.
