This week...

I'm reading

Last week I mentioned that I was starting An Astronomer in Love by Antoine Laurain. What a delight this book was. I am planning to review this and a couple of other books by this author as part of Paris in July. If you haven't read Laurain before, keep an eye out for his books!

I then continued my book visit to France and read The Riviera House Swap by Gillian Harvey. I really like her books and this was no exception. My review for this will be up later this week. 

I then have a big gap before my next review book is due, so in theory I could read anything. Do you know how hard it is to choose what to read next when there are no parameters. Talk about paralysis by analysis. In the end I started The Itinerary by Penny Pentley. You can tell from the cover that at least some of this book will be set in Paris.

I'm watching

Nothing much!


The highlight of the last week was my birthday dinner. We went to a pop up restaurant called Alumni which was being run by Masterchef Australia alumni, Calum Hann. It was a four course set menu and that means that you end up eating things that you might not otherwise try! More about that in Weekend Cooking this week.

I am in Sydney for work for a couple of days this week, and then going to the Gold Coast for the weekend so it's a bit frantic here at the moment.
