Weekly Update #136
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!
Well, it's been 3 weeks since I last posted a Sunday Post and I honestly don't have much to say or update on. Things are the same: working from home, home schooling, everything closed. We go to bed late, we get up late, we go for a walk (only allowed one a day!) and we do something together in the evenings like watch a movie, tv show, play computer games or boardgames. I'm sick of everything, my family is sick of everything.... Even the cats are fed up with us disrupting their routine with our lack of one for even though our daily activities are consistent our timekeeping is all over the place! Not to mention having to actively check what day of the week I am on several times a day because they all blur together now.
Ah well, at least we're safe! I keep reminding myself that we have a lot to be thankful for and this will end before too long... I hope life is more interesting for you all!
I've added a lot of books which looks really bad when stacked up against my book-buying restrictions for this year but I don't care. I'm in budget, they were free or on sale, and I just need to ensure I read more books than I acquire before the end of the year... Plus, it's three weeks worth and they were too good to ignore!
(Well, except Grey. I should have 100% ignored that one and I already know that before I've even read it...)

I've only read three books since my last update... Playing Stardew Valley has taken over my reading time (and most of my everything else time too) and I'm okay with that. It's soothing to the soul.
Lancelot by Giles Kristian
(OMG, this book killed me! Major book hangover! I'm not over it. I'll never be over it.)
To Kill A King by CS Wilde
To Kill The Dead by CS Wilde
(The CS Wilde books were enjoyable... I look forward to the final book later this year.)
We have a weekly date with Disney+ and WandaVision on a Friday and we're really enjoying it.
Modern Family continues to keep up thoroughly entertained and we've now hit season 8.
We've started a Marvel re-watch with Iron Man and I'm looking forward to To All The Boys: Always and Forever releasing on Netflix this week.
3 posts in 3 weeks... Wow. I've been so productive, lol.
