Quel week! Sorry, I read Oh yeah, Audrey the other day and I’m constantly coming out with Breakfast at Tiffany’s quotes. Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to.
Read: Going back to work for three days meant I had time to read! I finished A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on Monday (I can easily see why it’s Becky’s favourite and highly recommend it. It is possibly now in my all-time top ten), whizzed through Oh Yeah, Audrey on Tuesday (review coming soon) and made a start on Caraval on Wednesday. I planned to finish it that night but I just can’t read in bed. Bed = sleep! I’m gonna have another attempt tonight (I’m writing and scheduling this on Thursday night) so fingers crossed. I definitely can’t wait until I go back to work to finish it.
Watched: We just saw Wonder Woman and it was awesome! A strong four stars – the slightly naff CGI (Steve flying the plane, anyone?) and cheese factor with the whole “I believe in love” thing let it down a bit. We hung on til the end for a post-credits scene and nada! Don’t waste your time if you haven’t already been. They totally should have screened the Justice League trailer at the end rather than pre-film. I’m so excited for it though.
Heard: OK, this should probably go under ‘seen’ instead but I’ve not really listened to any podcasts or music this week, so I’m mentioning One Love Manchester here. I didn’t realise it was on BBC1 until it had already started so didn’t start watching until about 8pm. It’s probably for the best cos I don’t know if I could have handled the whole Angels thing. Where Is the Love totally got me though. And Fix You. What a night!
Made: I made my mark. Well, I put a cross on a ballot paper. As I said, I’m writing this on Thursday evening, so by the time you read this post we’ll know the result. All I know is I took the time to vote for who I really wanted to win and who I believe in and I hope that we wake up in a better place. That actually sounded kinda morbid but you know what I mean!
Wore: This fecking Cornish weather is doing my head in. I leave the house dressed for rain then it’s bright sunshine just a few hours later. I’ve definitely needed the old waterproof a lot this week though. June my arse!
And lastly: I’ve got another week of annual leave! I booked a week off for both Jenson and Luke’s birthdays and I can’t help it if they’re a fortnight apart! All Luke wants for his birthday is to go the beach, get a pizza and watch a film. Let’s hope the weather is on our side.
Have a lovely weekend! We don’t have anything planned and Luke has the weekend off as a pre-birthday treat so hopefully there will be some fun outdoor activities with Jenson.
