This week....

I'm reading

This week has been a good reading week. I finished listening to At the Foot of the Cherry Tree by Alli Parker, which I really enjoyed.  

I then started listening to Before the Memory Fades which is the third book in the Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi.

I also finished The Austrian Bride by Helen Parusel, which I reviewed last week.

Now I am reading The Secrets of Creswell  Hall by Alexandra Walsh. I read a book by her last year which is called The Forgotten Palace which I really enjoyed so I eagerly volunteered for this blog tour. this book is about The Gunpowder Plot and so far is really interesting!

I'm watching

Nothing in particular


On the weekend, my husband and I journeyed  to a small coastal town called Apollo Bay. We drove down on Friday night, and then he was going on a deep sea fishing trip on the Saturday morning. I had quite a few different options that I could have done, including sleeping in and doing not much, but I decided to drive about an hour away and visit The Twelve Apostles which is an iconic Australian location, which gave me some quality audiobook listening time. I had to drop Robert at the port before 7am which meant that I got to the Twelve Apostles just after 8am which was amazing because there were literally six other people there when I arrived. When you arrive later in the day there are often hundreds of people crowded around trying to get the perfect picture!

I spent ages trying to get a photo where you can see the spray on the top of the waves

And then this is Lochard Gorge which is very close by

I am going to be doing a day trip back to the Apostles in a couple of weeks, but that's okay because it's a view that never gets old!!
