This Week....

I'm reading....

I managed to fit in some audiobook time over the last week and so I was able finish An Island Wedding by Jenny Colgan. I have to say I was expecting a different ending... but I did still enjoy it..

I also finished reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll for this month's Cook the Books.

Then there's the books that I started. My read on a theme bookclub theme this month is autobiography or biography. I don't read a lot of biography, whether auto or otherwise, so I had to think hard about some choices. I realised that I had Jimmy Barnes's autobiogaphy Working Class Boy that I had purchased on Audible some time ago so today I started listening to that. I also borrowed The Happiest Man on Earth by Eddie Jaku, so who knows, I might read two books for this month!

As we have now moved into a new area, it is time to start finding new brunch places. On Saturday I had to wait for my husband to get his haircut, I started reading a freebie Kindle book called It Was All the Pies Fault by Elizabeth SaFleur which is fun so far. And makes me want to make pie.

I'm watching

Last week was the finale of this series of My Kitchen Rules (MKR). I really enjoyed this series and I was glad with the result.

I did start watching the new series of Never Have I Ever over the weekend. I am not really the target audience at all, but I do enjoy it, especially John McEnroe's narration.

We also started watching Mr Robot tonight. I know this is an older series but we have never watched it. 


We are pretty much settled in the new house. There are still boxes in the garage but the house looks pretty good. We are still acqiring a few bits and pieces of furniture and there is one room that needs a lot of work, but mostly we are settled.

  1. I can't wait to see what you are preparing for Alice in Wonderland. I'm just finished and need to write my post.
    Getting unpacked from a move is laborious!

  2. I’m glad your settling in to the new house well.
    I enjoy Never Have I Ever too

    Wishing you a great reading week

  3. I'm glad you are settling into your new house and area. Good luck finding brunch spots! Your books sound good too. I've never read Alice in Wonderland which is sort of odd considering just how many books I have read. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
