The professor was in the Hague this week on work, therefore, I was flying solo on the home front and it was, once again, a crazy stressful week that saw me working off my stresses in the strangest ways... Like re-staining the wood floors throughout my current house.
I figured, they were scuffed up, they'd need sorting before we move into our own home so I DIY'd myself into contentment.
It was extremely satisfying and now I'm kicking myself for not doing it a year or two ago when we'd be able to enjoy the niceness ourselves!
But, oh well.
I also bought - despite the fact I was supposed to be extreme penny-pinching - the Crash Bandicoot release for the Nintendo Switch.
I LOVED that game when I was a kid.
My first ever console was a PS1 and that was one of the few games when I got it so I played it to death. When I found out it was being released on multiple platforms for the first time ever and had been digitally remastered, I grabbed it and settled in for a nostalgic gaming binge with the little dude.
Blood Match - KA Linde
I had an ARC of this one for over a month before I dared open it, despite the first in the series ending on an evil cliffhanger! I just couldn't. I was too scared of what would come next!
However, with my blog tour date on Wednesday, I braved the book and loved it!
The next book is the last one so I'm excited to see how it ends!
My Thoughts on Blood Match
Iron and Magic - Ilona Andrews
Bought it. Read it. Loved it.
Want to cry at having to wait on the next one.
Will eventually write a review when I get over my happy little book hangover.
Iron and Magic - Ilona Andrews
It finally released and, despite being a penny-pinching misery-guts at the moment, I didn't cancel my pre-order so it is mine!
And I read it and I'm already totally tweaking for the next one. And the next Kate Daniels book. And just anything that this duo write.
Meet Me At Willow Hall - Carla Burgess
After reading Meet Me Under The Mistletoe at Christmastime I complained (despite loving it) that there wasn't enough resolution between the main characters and I wanted an epilogue to know the HFN turned into a HEA.
Well, I guess it didn't because they're back in another book and they've split up!
Obviously, they'll get their HEA in this one which is better than an epilogue... Right?
Erm... Nothing really jumped out at me.
Although, I DID get some commenting and visiting done this week!
Next up was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.
I watched this with the little dude and I just don't get it. It was the most pointless movie I've watched in a very long time but the little dude loved it so maybe I'm just not the target audience for it?
One thing that really got to me when I was watching it was, were the turtles turtles that turned into a people-like person or were they people who turned into turtle-like people?
Finally, the little dude and I watched The Witches.
He's read various Roald Dahl books and he's watched a load of Roald Dahl book-movies so I suspected he'd like it and I was correct!
He loved it.
Of course he loved it... There was witches, and magic and rodents and chaos.
I'm glad he liked it though. It's one of those films I remember from when I was his age and, even though it's an old one now, it's still pretty cool.

Book Blogger Hop: Do You Use Instagram?
Blog Tour: Blood Match by KA Linde
Blitz: Counterfeit Boyfriend by Cindi Madsen
Reviews, memes and chill!
I have no tours, blitzes or other blog commitments this week so it's a whatever I want week.
It'll be nice to spend some time catching up with visits and the like.
I'm seriously thinking of deleting this seeing as I'm epically failing in them, lol.
Have a great week all!
