Sunday Summary

This week I've been...

Loving - the warmer weather! It's spring, this makes my heart so happy.

Listening - to new singles from a range of artists: Daft Punk, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry. I like it all.

Reading - a Young Adult novel The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. I really liked this, and am happy to discover it's a series. It's set in modern London with a Jack the Ripper copycat on the loose. Next up is Shadows of the Nile by Kate Furnivall. It's a 30s-set mystery where the heroine searches for her lost brother in Egypt. And you probably know I'm a sucker for anything from that period.

Watching - Ripper Street. This show, like the book I've been reading, also has a Jack the Ripper theme, leading me to have a bit of an obsession with it lately. I love this show because a) Victorian London b) Matthew McFadyn's dialogue c) it's got Bron from Game of Thrones.


Anticipating - the return of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries this Friday.  So happy this show got a second season. And Kerry Greenwood has a new Miss Phryne novel out later this year, joy!

Diverted by - the election. I'll be very interested in the polls on election night. I have been much more interested in our policital process this time around, and have actually taken notice of policies and personalities. This is in sharp contrast to previous elections where I have mostly tried to ignore all the hoopla. I wonder if this is a symptom of getting older?

Worrying - about putting up our big shed next weekend. I keep thinking something disastrous will happen.

Doing - housework, all day. consistency is the key to keeping up with it, as any person will tell you, and I've let it slip lately.

How was your week? Read any good books lately? Or recommend me something to watch? Ever built a shed?


  1. i dont have anything that i have read lately that i have loved. but i love watching 'suits'. have you ever heard of it?

    i am anxiously awaiting the return of 'greys anatomy' 'sons of anarchy' 'the vampire diaries' and there was another. hmm. cant think of it. so excited for my shows to be coming back!

    1. I have heard of Suits but never seen it! People keep recommending it, will have to see if I can catch it on Foxtel.
      My hubby is eagerly awaiting Sons of Anarchy too, but I just never got into it. There's so much good tv coming back on it's ace!

  2. I've been burying my heart in fanfiction, but I'm sort of addicted to little romance novellas at the moment. I've been downloading quite a few of them from Dreamspinner, much guilty pleasures! Genie's Wish by Susan Laine, and Love Comes in Darkness by Andrew Grey, they both brilliant, probably not your cup of tea though! Have you read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak? That is one of the very tear jerking books that has stayed with me for years.

    I don't really watch much television anymore, but James and I recently sat down and watched the How to Cook Like Heston DVD. It was simply magical!

    1. I shall google these ones you recommend nonetheless! I have never read the Book Thief! Shocking I know, but I have resolved to now that they are making a movie.
      I watch so much tv I find it odd that you don't, but it's probably better for you :) Was the DVD about Heston Blumenthal? He is magical!
