This week has been spent mainly with me trying to keep my head as still as possible – I slept funny last Sunday and since then my neck has gone into spasm and I am now on prescription painkillers until it gets better – hopefully by Monday. Even with an iffy neck there have still been a few things I have loved this week.
I actually read one of my Galaxy Quick Reads this week – Too Good To Be True – which was a really good read. They’re the sort of books you can read in a day or two and I love how you can really get into a story so quickly.
I have also been ploughing on with the first Harry Potter book and am about half way through. I had forgotten how enjoyable they are to read and how drawn into the world of Harry Potter you become. I can’t wait to work my way through the series.
As usual I’ve read some lovely blog posts this week and the one that sticks in my mind most is Laura’s post about friends you have never met. She mentioned a picnic we had literally years ago, where not just bloggers but other people from Twitter all met up and had a lovely afternoon. It’s a post I can really relate to – as the majority of my friends I met online – and it has made me think about organising another blogger picnic!
Hubby and I watched Jurassic World a few nights ago and I actually really enjoyed it – considering the last time I watched a Jurassic Park movie was when the first one came out at the cinema and I spent the whole time hiding in my Dad’s shoulder – I was only ten at the time and still have flashbacks!
But, although it was a great movie, how can one of the lead characters spend the whole movie running away from dinosaurs whilst wearing high heels? So ridiculous. Can you imagine Lara Croft wearing high heels? No. Exactly.
This week I’ve had You Got A Friend In Me from Toy Story in my head. It’s one of my favourite Disney songs and always makes me well up just a little bit.
This week I have pretty much stayed in my jogging bottoms or PJs as much as possible. Sometimes it’s the only thing that will do.
Last weekend I made hand print canvases with the kids. We don’t paint very often – because of the mess – but the kids love it and I should really do it more.
This weekend is going to be a very quiet one with limited plans due to my dodgy neck but have fun whatever you get up to.
