This Week I....

I'm Reading....

Not a lot has changed in my main reading this week. I am still reading The Night Ship and listening to Working Class Boy.

I did decide that I wanted something fun to read so I did start reading Act Like It by Lucy Parker. I really enjoyed Battle Royale when I read it last year and I can see that this is going to be an enjoyable read to.

I'm Watching....

My husband started watching The Good Doctor last week so we watched a few episodes over the last week. I am not sure why we didn't watch it when it was on the first time around!

I have had the show Around the World in 80 Days on my to watch list for months and this seems to be the week that I was going to watch it. We have two public holidays at the end of this week so maybe I will be able to finish it!

We also watched the next two episode of Welcome to Wrexham. Pretty sure we will be watching each episode as they come out now!

Recently I was looking at upcoming releases and we saw The Fisherman's Friends 2. I said that I hadn't even heard of the first one so I ended up hiring it to watch on Friday night. 


We were lucky enough to get free tickets to go and see the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra this week. They performed around 5 pieces in all but the 3 that were on the program were Miriam Hyde's Village Fair, Korngold's Violin Concerto and Dvořák's Symphony No.8.

We have also booked a holiday for next year! Yes, another one! 


Given that Max is very new to us, there are plenty of firsts. For example, we took him for a short walk and he was super excited when he got back so he clearly loved it!

I have also learnt that my ugg boots are pretty much not going to survive puppyhood. Our computer cords are also an endangered species!

Posts from the last week

Weekend Cooking: Alice in Wonderland

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


  1. Oh, the joys of having a new puppy! All I'm really watching are baseball games. I won't catch up on anything else until the season is over. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. There is lots of joy for sure Kathy! And some pain.

  2. Act Like It looks like a fun book. I love The Good Doctor. It's one of my favorite shows. Hope you have a great week!

  3. Fisherman's Friends looks fun!!

  4. I enjoy The Good Doctor. One season wasn't my favorite, but most of it is great.

    Sorry to hear about the puppy woes. Our dog ate several pieces of furniture and most of the area rugs before he settled down. Hopefully, yours will find something else less expensive to occupy his time.

    Hope you enjoy your reading week. Thanks for visiting my blog today.

  5. I have heard of The Good Doctor but have never seen it. Good to hear that you liked it.

  6. Sorry to hear about your Ugg boots 😆 I have a 5 month old puppy but he’s more into chewing on cords and cardboard

  7. I am curious about Act Like It. Enjoy your books and your week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES
