June Wrap-Up

The other half turned 50 yesterday, so we threw him a massive party at the weekend and now it’s is all about recovering from having way too much fun. Oh wait …. That didn’t happen. Because obviously the corona crisis messed that up. So instead, we had a “quiet” dinner with our bubble. (and the […]

May Wrap-Up

And another month bites the dust. What a year this is turning out to be. I can’t wrap my head around what’s happening in the world right now and I’m not just talking about this crazy virus. Lockdown measures have been eased here but I’m still staying safely in my own little bubble. (Two hours […]

April Wrap-Up

What can I say about April? All the days are kind of blurring together, aren’t they? Thankfully the weather has been quite glorious for most of the month so we were able to spend a lot of time outside in the garden. With wine. Really can’t complain 😉. Now if you think I’d be spending […]

March Wrap-Up

Well, this will go down in the books as the weirdest March ever, I’m sure. I was never really a fan of dystopian novels and now that it feels as if we’re actually stuck in one, even less so. As a part-time hermit, nothing much has changed for me. Except that the other half is […]

February Wrap-Up

I’m really going to have to replace that picture with something else if I keep doing these monthly posts instead. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Anywho, welcome to my February Wrap-Up! There shall be books because yes, I have been reading. I know, you are as shocked as I am. Really, with four storms in four subsequent weekends, there […]

Weekly Wrap-Up (February 2)

Technically this isn’t a weekly wrap-up but more of a look back on the month of January. You may have noticed there haven’t been any weekly wrap-ups because I just haven’t had the time to write them up. January is a blur of shopping, dinners, lunches, parties and one really bad hangover that made me […]

My Top 20 Favourite Books of 2019

What a year! This list has been nearly impossible to put together. I’ve read so many incredibly brilliant books in 2019 and it’s been a real battle trying to narrow it down to 20. I do so apologise to the authors whose books I had to drop from the list (not that you know who […]

Weekly Wrap-Up (December 15)

Diiiiiiiid ya miss me? 🤣 Technically, I suppose this is more of a monthly wrap-up because it’s been a while. That pesky socialising crap got in the way of writing up these posts. That would have been somewhat okay if the weekends of socialising had actually been the best time ever but no such luck. […]

Top 15 Favourite Series of 2019

It’s that time of year again, when I look back on all the brilliant books I’ve had the pleasure of reading. December seems to be coming around faster and faster. As predicted, 2019 was a fantastic year for books and putting these end-of-year lists together was tough! Like last year, I’ve split my favourite books […]

Weekly Wrap-Up (November 17)

Miserable, miserable week. Cold and dark and wet and blah. Is it Spring yet? Nothing much else to report. The other half is coming up to the busiest time of year at his job which means long, long hours and lots of alone time for me. And apparently the people in my life have simultaneously […]
