Oh this week... This week can bugger right off.
It started with broken guttering and torrential rain. Instead of the water going down the drain pipe, the run off water from 3 houses was pouring into my garden and because the ground was so sodden it wasn't draining away! It was just pooling there and I seriously thought it was going to flood my house. Thankfully, it didn't because the rain let up just long enough on Tuesday for it to absorb into the grass. Then, despite it raining on and off all week, it didn't get heavy enough to overwhelm the absorption capacity of the grass... But outside my window is more like a freaking swamp now. Fun!
We called the builder as this stuff is still covered by a warranty (new build perk!) and they're coming to fix it but not until the 24th! 😡
Fingers crossed things are okay until then!
Later in the week, I had another migraine and this one was an absolute doozy! I haven't felt that ill (over two days too!) in forever. It made last months back to back migraines feel like mild headaches.
I'm going to have to speak to the doc and the optician I think for this is getting incredibly annoying. My migraines are never usually this frequent. 😔
Two days lost... No reading, no work, no housework and no fun! Just sleeping or lying there like a zombie.
So, yeah... This week can go do one. Hopefully, this coming week is much better!
(I'd say it can't be worse but that would be jinxing it.)
Around the migraine, I continued the reading binge and it's been an Annette Marie week!!
Two Witches and A Whiskey - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Demon Magic and A Martini - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I cannot fangirl about this series enough! So much fun and utterly addictive.
Chase The Dark - ⭐⭐⭐
Bind The Soul - ⭐⭐⭐
Impatiently waiting for the next Guild Codex book, I decided to check out Annette Marie's back catalogue... So far, the Steel and Stone series is good but nowhere near as good as the Guild Codex.
Could be because it's mature YA? I don't know... But it hasn't fully clicked with me yet.
This week, I started watching How I Met Your Mother.
At the weekend, the kiddo and I watched some old Disney movies like The Sword and The Stone and Robin Hood. I don't know what made him want to but it was fun. They're so different from the Disney's now... And even the ones that came out when I was a kid like Aladin and The Little Mermaid!
This is a odd melody mix but it works and well... Dan could sing me the alphabet and I'd be a happy girl. 😀
