Weekly Update #135
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!
After avoiding the world for over two weeks, I'm slowly poking my head back into it and I'm not really liking it. However, I'll persist as I can't live on a fictional farm forever... I also want to read and need to tidy my house and stuff so... Back into the world, I go!
There's not much else to say here. We're in lockdown so can't go anywhere. I'm working from home, so there isn't anything to report there. The kid is currently homeschooled, and will be until Feb half-term at the earliest, so... Yep! You guessed it - nothing to report there.
It's a big cycle of eat, sleep, do whatever and repeat.
At least we're safe and healthy, right?

Blood Heir by Ilona Andrews (Pre-Order delivery)
The Stalking Jack The Ripper Collection (4 books) by Kerri Maniscalco (£3.99)
PS - I've decided not to include any KU books in this section going forward as they're returned after being read... Same would apply to library books.s
The good news is that I actually started reading this week!
I'm listening to Lancelot by Giles Kristian (and it's so addictive!) but it's a long one (22hrs) so it's going to take a while to get through it... Luckily, I've a lot of cleaning to do! 😉
Plus, I read my first book of the year, To Kill A Fae by C.S. Wilde.
I quite liked it so I'll be making the most of my Kindle Unlimited and continuing with the rest of the series.
I've been terrible at keeping up with your blog posts (again) while in my hiding phase but I've been trying to work my way through them all via my Feedly over the past 3/4 days... Needless to say, I have a long way to go but I'll be dropping by as I work through them this week.
We've been continuing watching Modern Family but the peace has slowed... We only got through one season this week! 😆 (We began s5 yesterday.)
We also watched the first two episodes of WandaVision and I'm intrigued! It's not the Marvel TV show I was dying to see (that would be Falcon and The Winter Soldier) but I'm definitely on board with it now and can't wait for next week's episode.
Another show I've been watching on and off is Ghosts. It's a BBC show made by the people that make horrible histories except it's for adults... Think haunted, crumbling manor house, ghostly shenanigans and the poor folks who inherited it. I'm not 100% sold on it yet but the episodes are short, there's only 6 in a season, and it's amusing in small doses so it breaks up everything else quite nicely.
I don't have a song but I've been watching this video almost daily lately as it just makes me feel happy and makes me want to dance... Oti (the pro) is my favourite Strictly dancer and I'm still salty and confused over how she didn't win it the year she danced with this guy... (Danny Mac)
Seriously, you should watch it. It's just under 2 minutes and it'll bring joy!
