This Week...

I'm reading



I mentioned last week that I started reading The Paris Cooking School which I have now finished and really enjoyed. However, I probably won't post the review for this one until July, as it will be a perfect Weekend Cooking post for Paris in July.




I also mentioned that I wasn't sure what I would listen to next. I ended up deciding to go back to something I have listened to a few times but not for a few years now. I chose to re-listen to Sylvester by Georgette Heyer, as narrated by Richard Armitage. Hello aural bliss!! 



I am on a blog tour for A Villa with a View by Julie Caplin later this week so I started and finished that this week. It bought back a lot of memories of our trip to Italy early last year.



While I was in Sydney last week, my read on a theme bookclub met and they decided that our next theme would be Crime: Fact or Fiction. I have had Richard Osman's The Thursday Murder Club waiting for me for a while so this seems like a good time to start reading it! Apparently I missed a cracker of a conversation. Our previous theme was "Outside Your Comfort Zone" and one of our older members decided it was time to read Fifty Shades of Grey which led to a lot of talk!



I'm watching



We are part way through several series but we didn't make a lot of progress this week. We did go and see Dune Part 2. We went a bit further afield from our closest cinema so we could get the reclining seats and it was worth it



Life



On Thursday I had a leaders day where we talked all about Diversity Equity and Inclusion. It was a full on day, but very interesting. Normally after a day like that I would go home exhausted but not this week as Ie went to see the theatre adaptation of Pip Williams' A Dictionary of Lost Words based on her book of the same name. Whilst I haven't read Dictionary, I have read the accompanying book, The Book Binders of Jericho. I really enjoyed the play, but I was exhausted by the end of the day!



In other exciting news, our holiday plans for August/September are starting to come together. I am so excited about some of the plans and I can't wait to share my experiences with you all!
