  1. What's Up In April? - 2018

    Hope everyone had a nice Easter. Ours was pretty good. I spent a nice week off with the boy doing various day trips whilst my youngest was in nursery for 4 days. Tomorrow it's back to work though (seems ages since I was in cos of the extended Easter weekend - I could almost get used to the non working lifestyle ) and holiday club for James. Glad your dog's on the mend, Noll.
  2. What Are You Watching Now? - 2018

    It is a very strange programme but I still love it. We caught up with the most recent 3 part series a few months ago. And @Madeleine, I saw Requiem too and I kinda concur!
  3. Your Book Activity - April 2018

    I finished Little Women a few days ago. Review to follow soon. Since then, I've just been continuing on with The Dark Tower but I'm sort of itching to start another book to read alongside it. I had been using my kindle to read the DT books whilst at work as I had e-book versions of them all too, but I might continue on just with the paperback (I'm finding the paperback strangely attractive as it's got one of the titchiest fonts I've ever come across ) and choose another e-book to read at work - perhaps another round robin classic novel.
  4. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    I watched Peter Rabbit last week with my son, which was mostly quite irritating (mainly because of James Cordon's voice acting), but it did have some amusing bits in it. Of course, my 5 year old loved it! Also been trying to fill in the gaps of mr Marvel film knowledge, after having fallen asleep through most of Phase 2 in the cinema. So have revisited Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Also watched Justice League which was fine to begin with but then I lost interest for the last half of it.
  5. Top 5 (or 10) Wednesday

    Tasslehoff Burrfoot - the 'irrepressible Kender from the Dragonlance Chronicles. Not only one of my favourite jokesters but one of my fave characters from all time.
  6. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    I was off sick for two days last week so I had a bit of a Now tv film binge. Get Out - rather sinister Zootropolis - really good Hidden Figures - amazing Assassin's Creed - not so good, but it did give me a brief nostalgic feeling for the game Wednesday, my son was off sick too and I had a bad migraine on top of my cold so I ended up sleeping through the only film I was bothered about seeing, which was Sing. The rest of the time he chose Disneys I'd already seen, and then Jurassic Park and Jumanji, whereas I was hoping to watch something new I'd not seen (other than bits here and there), like Moana or Finding Dory. 😒
  7. What Are You Watching Now? - 2018

    Amongst other things, I'm currently watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace - it's compelling stuff. Comedy wise, I'm watching Mum (very sweet) and This Country.
  8. Schultz's Reading Log 2018

    I saw the film last week. It was absolutely brilliant and so inspiring. I'm tempted to pick up the book myself at some point.
  9. What's Up in March? - 2018

    Hugs to everyone that needs one! I'm still sort of recovering from my 40th party on Saturday night. We had it at a local bar where we know the owners and it was really good fun.
  10. Your Age?

    Just turned the big 4-0 last week. I don't feel any different but I imagine it will sink it when I have to tick a new age bracket and when I get the 'now you're 40, you're getting on a bit and need a health check' letter from the docs.
  11. Your Book Activity - March 2018

    I did that rare thing (for me) last weekend of finishing two books on the same day - The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams (hilarious) and Song of Susannah. Then I started two more books on the same day. The Dark Tower by Stephen King and Little Women- the first round robin challenge that I've got around to.
  12. Diane's Reading List - 2018

    Ah yes, that's a nice viewpoint on it. When I was young, I used to think "Mother's Day, Father's Day? When's Kid's day?". Now I'm older and have children of my own, I know now that that's *every* day!
  13. Your Book Activity - March 2018

    Yes, Endless Night is very different to all other Agatha Christie's. I can't remember what it's about (as it's been probably 20 odd years since I read it) but I know I really liked it at the time. Contrary to what I said it was called the other day, I finished Assassin's Fate last night, which was fab. I had a bit of a reading blitz towards the end of it, both cos I was really enjoying it and so I didn't have a last minute rush to finish it before Friday (when I'm giving it back). I have picked out Little Women to start but before that, I'm just sneaking it what will be a very quick read I think - The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams aged 2 1/4 by Katie Kirby (Hurrah for Gin).
  14. Diane's Reading List - 2018

    Strictly it's called Mothering Sunday in the UK and isn't the equivalent of Mother's Day in other countries. Rather than it being a set date (or a set weekend, if you know what I mean), it's actually a religious festival (to celebrate your Mother Church) and moves about dependant on when Easter is - like pancake day. Although nowadays wetreat it the same way as other country's Mother's Days. I got 3 books for Mother's Day (it's still easier to say it that way ). The new Philip Pullman, Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and How to be a boy by Robert Webb.

    Sorry to hear about your dad, hope he's on the mend!
