This week...

I'm reading...

Well, after last week's post where I said I needed to finish one of two books for book club on Saturday. In the end, I didn't finish either of them, and I didn't go to book club because I have been sick all week.  I have only got 100 pages to go of The Lincoln Highway so I will definitely finishing it today.

The next read-on-a-theme choice is "family". I am pretty sure I will find at least one book on my real or virtual foundations which will suit that theme.

I have already decided that my next read is going to be Birdcage Walk by Helen Dunmore. Or rather, the library told me that the book must be returned soon so I have to read it.

I'm watching...

Lots of time feeling crook over the last week has given me plenty of TV viewing time in contrast with previous weeks where we have watched very little.

I finally finished watching The Parisian Agency season 2 so I am going to have to find some other Paris porn to watch. I do really enjoy watching this show with the amazing houses that the very wealthy quite often look at and think it isn't quite enough or just right! I really the family dynamic between the family who run the agency. 

We are big fans of the British show, The Repair Shop and so we were very please to start watching the Australian version. One episode in and we are happy with it so far.

I also started watching a Korean reality show called The Hungry and the Hairy. The idea is that two celebrity friends head out on their motorbikes and visit some of South Korea's famous sites and eat some amazing food. It's a premise that has been seen around the world before, but I don't recall ever watching much set in South Korea. I will watch a bit more and I am thinking that maybe it will be a Weekend Cooking post at some point.

I have a number of shows on my list that I want to watch including shows like Outlander, Julia, Reacher and more, but this week I started season 2 of Bridgerton. I think I am just over half way through so hopefully will watch more this week.

Finally, we binged a few episodes of Picard on Saturday night


We had a few plans over the weekend but none of them happened.

We really are getting to crunch time in relation to this house. We need to get this house to a point where it is ready too start showing people through. To say I am starting to stress and get a bit anxious about this whole selling and moving thing is an understatement. Luckily every time we go to the new house we are pleasantly surprise by the progress that has been made. Just have to keep the end goal in mind I guess.

Weekend Cooking: What I Baked in April

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


  1. That South Korean show sounds neat- I'll have to check that out!

    1. One of the guys is very OTT but I think I am slowly getting used to that!

  2. I hope you are feeling better this week Marg.
    Make sure you get some real estate advice advice while you are preparing to show. They can give you some solid advice and stop you sinking money into areas that aren’t going to affect the sale price.

    Wishing you a great reading week

    1. Better than I was last week, thanks!

      Right now I just have to get the motivation to do what needs to be done.

  3. I have to get back to watching Picard and now I want to see the new series that just started. Bridgerton is another one I want to try. I hope you have a great week!

  4. I hope you are feeling better now. I haven't watched anything on television since baseball started except baseball. All those shows sound intriguing. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  5. The new seasons of Picard and Star Trek Discovery are on a premium channel we don't have, but I'm thinking it might be a good Father's Day gift for my husband!

  6. I am also in the middle of The Lincoln Highway. It is not what I expected - although he is still avoiding quotation marks, which I find pretentious!

    1. It wasn't what I expected either. I did really like it though

  7. Hope you are feeling better, I find viewing easier than reading when not well.

    1. Especially during the day when I would normally be walking.

  8. Sorry to hear you have not been well! Get better soon, and in the meantime enjoy all you are watching and reading :)
