This week....

I'm reading....

Life continues to busy, but I did manage to find some time to do some reading, both in book and audio forms!!  I finished reading It Was All the Pie's Fault by Elizabeth SaFleur which was a fun read! And with all the different flavours of pie mentioned all through the book, it made me just a bit hungry!

I also finished reading The Things We Cannot Say by Kelly Rimmer. This is the second book I have read by this Australian author. Such a good read!

The book that I started was The Night Ship by Jess Kidd which I am really excited about. It is the story of a ship called The Batavia which was shipwrecked on the Western Australian coast in the 1600s. I have long been interested in the story of this ship.

In addition, I have made good progress in listening to Working Class Boy by Jimmy Barnes as my book club book.

I'm watching....

Have you seen the I am Groot shorts films? They have just been released on Disney+.  They are just 5 minutes long and they are very cute!

We also watched all the current episodes of Welcome to Wrexham. This is the story of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney buying Welsh football club Wrexham.  It is touching and funny and I will definitely be watching more episodes as they come out.


We had a very busy weekend!  Let's start with Sunday. 

In the morning we went to Lune Lab. Lune is a very famous croissanterie here in Melbourne. Often the line is out the door on the weekend but we had a prime position which gave a view of the cube inside the building which is where they roll out all the different shapes for the croissants. Lune Lab is a degustation where you get to try experimental fillings. What it was was delicious!

After a delicious breakfast, I headed into Melbourne Writer's Festival and attended three sessions. The first featured Sulari Gentil and Hayley Scrivenor talking about Frenemies. The second was a discussion was titled The Age of Anti-Ambition. The third session was a sensation conversation with Sarah Winman, author of Still Life! I could have listened to her talk all day! 

Really though, the highlight of our weekend is that we got a dog! Meet Max!

We have been talking about getting one for a while. However, I got impatient waiting for my son to make a decision last week, so I provided him with a shortlist of five different sets of puppies to choose from and Max was the lucky dog! Expect to hear more about Max!

  1. Congrats on the new dog! Sounds like you had a great week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. Hi Max! My son wants to watch those Groot episodes. Looks like you got some good reading done.

    1. It only takes about half an hour to watch all the Groot shows Hena.

  3. I'm not a dog person, but I think I could really warm up to Max. He's a cutie! All the Pie's Fault sounds like a fun read!

    1. I haven't had a dog for 30 yeares but I am certainly warming to him.
