Weekly Update #132
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Now that's explained, it's on to my weekly recap!
I finished work for the holidays on Thursday and I'm not back in the office until 5th January.
A nice long break is just what I need. Especially at the moment what with all the stuff on the news... Apparently, there's a mutant strain of covid in the South East of England so they've been put into a full lockdown and numerous countries have cut off flights, freight etc with the UK until more is known, I guess. Fun times. Add it to Brexit with no trade deal (as it currently stands) and we're heading for a new shit-show of epic proportions.
I'm lucky to be in a Tier 2 area (pretty minimal restrictions, mostly just can't mingle with other households indoors or out) but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried about what January is going to bring.
On the positive, we kick-started our Christmas with a trip to Stourhead on Friday for their Christmas lights event and it was beautiful.
I'm all set for Christmas (food, gifts and everything else I can think of) and we're unaffected by the Prime Minister "cancelling Christmas" as we were going to be ourselves anyway.
This Christmas is going to be very different but it'll still be awesome.
I hope that wherever you all are and however you celebrate (if you celebrate) that you all have a happy and safe Christmas.

I took a trip back to Elfhame...
The Queen of Nothing was a re-read and every bit as enjoyable as the first time.
How The King of Elfhame Learned To Hate was a good read but it was super short and for the price? (£9.99 on kindle) A complete rip off... Seriously,
Linda talks AudibleGate.
Christmas movies. Lots and lots of Christmas movies.
Have a great week all!
