September 2019 round up


It’s September now, and judging by the sudden plummet in temperatures, Summer is firmly over!


What I have read

  • The Devil Wears Prada – Lauren Weisberger
  • The Well of Lost Plots (Thursday Next #3) – Jasper Fforde
  • When Did You Last See Your Father? (Chronicles of St Mary’s #10.5) – Jodi Taylor
  • The World I Fell Out Of – Melanie Reid
  • Revenge Wears Prada – Lauren Weisberger

And I’m still working on:

  • The Foyles Bookshop Girls at War (The Foyles Girls #2) – Elaine Roberts.
  • Bridget Jones’s Diary – Helen Fielding
  • Something Rotten (Thursday Next #4) – Jasper Fforde

I’ve taken a few new books out of the library this past week so I’d better get reading! I’ve slacked off this month so I’m only two books ahead of schedule now.

 


What I have watched

  • Hollyoaks
  • ER season 14 and some of 15
  • Only Connect
  • Series 6 and 7 of Call the Midwife which have recently come to Netflix.
  • Yet another series of Taskmaster
  • The Letdown, a Netflix original comedy about parenting. I cringed through the first episodes but it’s strangely relatable.
  • The Secret Garden (the 90s version with Maggie Smith)
  • Lots of episodes of the 90s Famous Five series on YouTube.
  • Smuggler’s Gold, the Famous Five Musical which I then reviewed.

What I have done

  • Stef came up to stay for the week, and after a bad start because we were all either ill or recovering from a stomach bug, we made two trips to St Andrews. We packed in the shops, (though we didn’t buy any books!!) the beach, the botanic gardens, cakes, and lots of walking.
  • We visited our local wildlife park and Brodie did his monkey noises when he spotted the gibbons and fed the goats some grass.
  • Went to a bookbug session in the big library as my local one was still closed for refurbishment.
  • Went for a walk/play in a country park and played at another centre with a huge maze/
  • Played at a few parks and fed the ducks.
  • Celebrated my 16 (!!) year anniversary with Ewan, (that is, quite literally, half my life!) by going for lunch and a walk along the Arbroath cliffs.

      I’ve definitely seen the first and third but I’m not so sure about the second. I picture Bridget as Renee Zellwegger, Colin Firth as Mark Darcy and Hugh Grant as Daniel as I listen.
