Weekly Roundup 11/08/19 – 17/08/19


  • Reading

This week I have been reading The Friend by Teresa Driscoll and managed to finish it by Wednesday.  It took me a week to read and I have really enjoyed not only the book but generally getting back into reading in general!  I have also been reading Creating A Brand Identity by Catharine Slade-Brooking which is a really interesting read for anyone who wants to create their own brand identity.  I have, so far, only read the first chapter but I have gained so much from it and have so many things to think about!

  • Watching

This week I watched Sextuplets on Netflix which I really enjoyed!  It is a film about a man who decides to trace his birth mother and in doing so, discovers that he is part of a group of sextuplets.  The film was really funny and worth a watch!

  • Listening to

This week I have been listening to a New Age music CD called Stonehenge by Runestone.  I have had this CD for years, previously owning the tape which I wore out!  I find that this CD is really relaxing and the music is perfect for background music when working, eating or relaxing.  I have been lighting incense and just sitting, practising mindfulness meditation which has been lovely.

  • Eating

It has been a week for comfort eating, though it has been too warm for jacket potatoes and hot food so I have been tucking into Marmite sandwiches which have reminded me of being little, packed lunches and school trips.

  • Drinking

This week I have been drinking a lot of water.  I have also been enjoying freshly brewed coffe, Hot Lava Java, in work thanks to my Bodum Travel Press.  I use the Travel Press for both loose tea and for ground coffee, depending on which I fancy, I add a spoon of either to the mug and put the mug back together, then in the afternoon I will fill it with hot water and let it work its magic before enjoying a hot tea or coffee!

  • Doing

This last week I have been working on my blog schedule for next year.  I have a few things that I want to add in as well as changing a few things around so I wanted to have a play around with the schedule in advance so I can move things around and get things how I want before we hit 2020!  I’m pretty pleased with how it’s turning out though I have a long way to go before I’m totally happy with it!  I have also been making progress on my project and, with a few more tweaks it should be ready to launch soon, I am thinking that September may be better to launch though rather than next week!

  • Feeling

I’ve been feeling pretty ok this week, aside from feeling a bit isolated in work though by the end of the week I was feeling a bit better.  One positive of it all is that I have got all my work done and my desk cleared each day which has been a good feeling!  The other positive to come from it all is that I have taken that motivation from completing my work, bought it home and been able to continue with working on my own projects, and am even more determined than before to get my projects working to the best they can.

How has your week been?  What have you been up to?  I’d love to hear in the comments!

  1. OOO I saw the trailer for sextuplets yesterday and added it to my list of things to watch! Maybe today I’ll give it a go.

    My week was a little boring but good. It was my last week at work so that was cool, the one teacher I’m always in a bullying war with (in a nice way) didn’t know it was my last week until Wednesday and then he was a little upset lol I will miss m good students! But just got new Italian ones and one girl’s answer for everything is “I don’t care” so glad to be rid of her haha

    This weekend, oh man, I had a list of things. And then Saturday I woke up and did the shared space cleaning that I had to do and then lost all my energy. I slept most of the afternoon away, and then still slept 8 hours overnight. I’m going to embrace the sleep though, I’m guessing my body needs it. Tonight is Shakespeare in the Park and I’m so excited!

      1. LOL I got one thing 99% done, and I had a ticket to “much adu about nothing” at a local park. And that’s it. The rest of the time I slept lol

      2. Oh yeah I’m the same way. I know that I needed it. I’ve had an exhausting summer lol

        And it was cute! They modernized it a little bit to make it easily relate-able. The only thing is that it was so uncomfortable to sit there for two hours haha! You had to be cross legged on the ground, like I knew I’d be on the ground but I thought I’d have a little more space to stretch my legs out and stuff. I was constantly shifting around. Probably really distracting the people around me.
