This Week....

I'm reading....

Life has gotten in the way a few times recently so it has been a couple of weeks since my last Monday post. That sounds like a confession of sorts right?

I have been doing a lot of driving lately so I have made some good progress with listening to An Island Wedding by Jenny Colgan, the latest book in the series set on the island of Mure. I really enjoy this series. Hopefully I will get some more listening in this week.

I did finish reading Starting Over in Bellbird Bay by Maggie Christensen last week, and I am just a few days behind posting the review! Must get onto that.

The current selection for the Cook the Books group is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, so I started reading that over the weekend. I did buy a version from Amazon which was very strange. It had a 3-4 page summary of the story and then 3 poems,  not written by Lewis Carroll. Needless to say I will be returning this one. I am now reading one from Project Gutenberg.

I'm watching....

We have been watching a bit of this and that. I did finish Sweet Magnolias and now I am several issues into the latest season of Virgin River.

We had all the fun of setting up a new TV so have been setting up all the apps which has reminded me of how many things there are on all the apps that I either need to finish or start!


We made a quick trip to Adelaide for my brother's belated 40th birthday last weekend which you can see some pics here.

The big news is ....... we moved house!!

We are mostly moved in and unpacked enough to be able to live. There are plenty of boxes in the garage, the wardrobes need to be reorganised, and a few other things, but we are in. I do need to get used to the noises here at night!

Weekend Cooking: A Quick Trip to Adelaide

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


  1. I'm glad you were finally able to move. I can understand living surrounded by boxes! Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. We have managed to hide most of the boxes! Out of sight, out of mind!

  2. Yea to moving! I know you've been lookng forward to it. When we remodeled the boxese of things were everywhere, can't imagine moving the entire house but I'd like to. We aren't crazy about the area where we live but haven;t found a place elsewhere - yet.
    New noises would be somethig to get used to. Are you in a bigger city now?

    1. Still in the same city, just a different suburb. There are still houses being built on 3 sides of us so lots of noises and dirt at the moment.

  3. Wow new house and new TV!! Will be interested to see your thoughts on how Island Wedding finishes.

    1. Oh, you've made me want to find more time to listen!

  4. Congrats on the move- and loved the pics from Adelaide. Looks like fun roadtrip. I've always thought the Colgan books look fun. I love some of the very summery covers on the series.

  5. Moving for people who read is a lot of work, but I always found that books are the most portable and easy-to-pack things I own! I've been reading a lot, but not blogging a lot.
    Some sellers on Amazon are very unscrupulous! Alice's Adventures in Wonderland sounds like an unusual choice for Cook the Books (?). I look forward to seeing the posts about it!

    1. There are so many food references in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Laurie!

    2. I didn't remember that! Jam tarts and magic mushrooms? Sounds like fun!
