Woahhh we’re half way there!
It’s wednesday and time to share what I have been up to this last week, but before I do I thought it was worth sharing that today was my last day in work. Tomorrow I start my maternity leave….
Everyone keeps asking me if I’m excited and I really don’t know how to answer that question. I can’t say that I’m excited to finish work, but I guess I could say that I’m excited because finishing work means I really am moving into the last stage of pregnancy. I’ll admit I’ll also be grateful for a lie in as sleep is becoming more difficult. (I sound thrilled by all of this don’t I?)
I do want to make the most of my time off to rest and get shiz done before baby makes an appearance, so over the next day I’m going to put a good old to-do list together & make sure that I have something I can achieve each day. I’m a little nervous that if I don’t do this then I could find myself getting more restless than normal which will make me feel down. With all the hormones roaming around at the moment, it’s not something I want!!
Anywho, let’s get started on my Wednesday Update 🙂
WHAT Craft Projects am I working on at the moment?
Nada, I’m hoping to pick my cross stitch up this week now I have finished, so watch this space!
What Book(s) am I reading at the moment?
At the weekend I finished ‘Eve of Man’ by Giovanna & Tom Fletcher, which I did enjoy. Over the next few days now I have my laptop updated & fully charged I am hoping to finally get my review down on paper.
Have you read this book? What did you think? I picked this book up as my book clubs book of the month to read so I am excited to chat to people about this one!
Currently I am reading ‘A Good Heart is Hard to Find’ by Trisha Ashley. I’ve purposely picked this book up on my kindle as an easy read.
The blurb from Goodreads summaries the book nicely. Click Here to see more about this book.
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man of over forty is in possession of a major defect . . .”
Cassandra Leigh has woken as if from a bad dream: forty-four, childless and twenty-plus years into an affair with a married man. Max assures her they just need a little more patience and for his wife to die (!) but Cass is desperate for a baby and running out of time. Maybe Max is not the only man for her?
There’s her friend Jason – though he’s perhaps a little too rugged, and there’s something strange about the way his wife disappeared . . . Or there’s Dante, the mysterious stranger she meets on a dark night in his haunted manor house . . .
Cass must throw caution to the wind and claim the life she’s always wanted. Suddenly, it’s a choice between Mr Right, Mr Wrong or Mr Right Now . . .
So yeah, I’m about 25% of the way through and at the moment I could take it or leave it. I’m finding how the book is written quite difficult to follow as mid scene it changes to an internal monologue linked with the main characters book she is writing which is a little odd. Who knows, the further I get into the book the more charming I might find it!
Here’s hoping I finish this one soon as I have so so so many books I want to read & need to get as many done before bubbs gets here!
Have you read this book or anything else by Trisha Ashley? Let me know your thoughts…
WHAT am I Watching at the moment?
Same old, currently on season 4 of Bones & not so patiently waiting for Bones & Booth to get together as their chemistry is ridiculous! (Watching on Prime).
On a side note, I spotted that they have a cool section on amazon prime called ‘Could I be any more nostalgic’, so not only do I read that like chandler, but I very much appreciate all the box set series on there… they have Buffy, Angel, Lost, Supernatural.. and probably a few more I can’t remember. I think I’ll find it difficult to get off the sofa and do something productive if the TV options are this good aha!
I did try watching abducted in Plain Sight the other day on Netflix but I had to turn it off after 30 minutes, it was absolutely ridiculous! Has anyone found this? I usually love anything true crime related but I just wasn’t feeling this one. It all felt a little bit too far fetched.
WHAT am I listening to at the moment?
I am working my way through season 2 of ‘Happy Mum, Happy Baby’ podcast which is hosted by Giovanna Fletcher. I find it light listening & completely relevant to my life at the moment. The last episode I listened to they talked a lot about breastfeeding which is something I am quite nervous about, so not only was the episode amusing, it as useful!
So, thats it for this weeks update. What have you all been up to? Can you relate to anything I have mentioned today? Let me know!
Enjoy the rest of your week
