We got some rain! For the first time in WEEKS we had some moisture and temperatures dropped to a nice level where I could sleep. Phew! That said, my relief is short-lived as the rain lasted less than two full days and another heatwave is supposed to hit on Monday but I'll take what I can get!
I've complained about migraines before but they've been so frequent and severe lately that I couldn't manage them anymore and had to visit the doc after a really bad one last Monday.
The good news is I now have medication that is supposed to prevent migraines rather than just treat them when they arrive. I don't know if it'll be effective or how I'll react yet (it can make you spaced and drowsy) but I'll see how it goes and I'm relieved that my doc is willing to work with me until we find something that works!
Beyond migraines, or maybe because of the migraines, I had a quiet week where I didn't do much.
I'm now counting down the days (4 school days!) until the summer holidays start and my temporary 3 day work weeks commence!
We have a lot of fun things and days out planned.
This was a low/no angst sweet read.
There wasn't a lot to it and you had to suspend belief a little but I liked it.
I pre-ordered this as soon as I could and was super excited to see it finally release onto my kindle!
These were both spotted on other book blogs this week - Stranded With the Billionaire was a recommendation from Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup. Puck Me Secretly was reviewed by Anne at Books of My Heart. - so I checked them out and decided to give them a read!
Nicole answers a bunch of This or That questions that makes me want to answer them too... (So, I'm gonna!)
I found a post about Blogging Burnout over at Cat on The Bookshelf that resonated a bit. Her solutions were a lot saner than my approach a few years back when I hit the wall and - metaphorically speaking - burned everything to the ground... But from the ashes Sunny Buzzy Books was born so there's a silver lining!
It's been a movie watchin' week!
First up was Spiderman: Far From Home, the movie which rounds off phase 3 of the MCU.
I really enjoyed it even though it kinda broke my heart.
I absolutely adore Tom Holland as the teenaged web-slinger and Jake Gyllenhaal was so good as Mysterio. Plus, he's a long term love of mine... 😍
Rock of Ages is a movie I love. I know it got a less than enthused reception when it released but I love the music and the movie just makes me happy. I stuck it on in the background this weekend while catching up on tasks and it was a lovely couple of hours.
Spiderman: Into The Spiderverse was a family watch and I must admit I was less than enthusiastic about it being the Friday night movie but it surprised me! It made me laugh, it was emotional, it was packed with action and it was really really fun!
So, I don't have a song this week. Instead, I'm sharing this video I saw on Facebook that had me giggling like a loon while eating my lunch yesterday.
