What I have read
I’ve done a bit better this month, having finally picked up a couple of books that have been sitting on my shelves for ages (one I’ve had on loan since before Brodie was born!) I’m now back on track for 100 books this year, so I’d better not slack off again.
- And Now for Something Completely Different (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #9.7) – Jodi Taylor
- E is For Evidence (Kinsey Millhone #6) – Sue Grafton
- Five Go Feasting: Famously Good Recipes – Josh Sutton (reviewed here)
- New Term at Malory Towers – Pamela Cox (reviewed here)
- Find Spot at the Library – Eric Hill
- Wedding Bells for Nurse Connie (Nurse Connie #2) – Jean Fullerton
- Easter With Nurse Millie (Nurse Millie #2.6) – Jean Fullerton
- Noddy and the Case of the Hiding Pirates (Noddy Toyland Detective #2) – ??* (reviewed here)
- The Werewolf of Fever Swamp (Goosebumps #14) – R.L. Stine
- F is For Fugitive (Kinsey Millhone #6) – Sue Grafton
- Mr Lemoncello’s Great Library Race (Mr Lemoncello’s Library #3) – Chris Grabenstein
- Death at the Seaside (Kate Shackleton #8) – Frances Brody
I’ve still to finish:
- The Diary of a Bookseller – Shaun Bythell
- G is for Gumshoe (Kinsey Millhone #7) – Sue Grafton
I have been true to my word from last month and not borrowed another Outlander yet, though I’m dying to!
* I haven’t forgotten to replace the question marks with a name, I literally can’t find out who wrote it. It’s credited to Enid Blyton everywhere.
What I have watched
- I’ve finished Amazing Interiors on Netflix and gone onto I Own Britain’s Best Home, after watching a one-off about enormous families called Megafamilies.
- Only Connect
- We’ve started on Umbrella Academy (also Netflix)
- I’ve returned to Murder She Wrote again, I’m now on season 3.
- The Case of the Hiding Pirates, to compare it to the book.
- Finished season 1 of The Sinner
What I have done
- Many more trips to different parks
- Continued the Organised Mum, Marie Kondo-ing and bullet journaling
- Stayed in a lodge at Crieff Hydro, but it was a bit of a rubbish weekend as Brodie decided that sleeping in a strange room (with or without us) was akin to torture and cried on and off for significant chunks of two nights before we gave up and came home a night early. We did manage to use the soft play and the swimming pool and eat loads of good food, though, so it wasn’t a total wash out.
- Took Brodie to the beach for the first time since he was a baby. He loved it, and paddled in the sea (wearing wellies!), spent ages picking up different stones and rolled around in the sand.
- Had lunch and cake out a few times, including sharing an enormous bit of cake at a local family restaurant while Brodie played in the children’s area
- Visited our local Transport Museum for the first time, Brodie loved riding the bus, police car and Reliant Robin, while my sister particularly liked Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
- Made pancakes for pancake day, which Brodie wouldn’t eat.
- Went out for afternoon tea for Mother’s Day
