Reading:  I'm finallllly getting around to finishing off the Sookie Stackhouse books, which I started reading way back in 2009. I got hooked on them instantly and even though I'm not usually into that sort of supernatural fantasy fiction, I couldn't stop reading them. Well, that was until I got swamped by my homework and distracted with the tv series adaptation and after season two of that my interest completely fizzled out for poor old Sookies woes. Until a couple of weeks ago when I was unpacking a couple of boxes I found 'Dead & Gone' and got stuck into it and finished it in a week or so. These books are super easy to read and so ridiculous that you need to keep on reading, plus I really look forward to the parts with Eric in them. I have just two more to go.

Watching: Luke & I just finished watching 'Breaking Bad', and holy smokes! After years of being told to watch this series I finally let my guard down about it and gave it a go. My bff sent me a copy of season one in the mail and Luke & I were instantly drawn into Walter White's wrong turn. We had a little break before watching the final 8 episodes, and halfway through them I just wanted it to be done because it was making me feel stressed out for the characters. I hated feeling like Hank was the bad guy and not wanting Walter to get caught, when if this was a situation in real life most people would be disgusted with Walter's actions. So the last episode was quite a satisfying end to Walter White's tumultuous journey. 

Listening to: Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience. Every morning when Romy has her breakfast, and when she is being fussy at meal times. She loves it! She really seems to like Jay Z's rap in 'Suit & Tie', (I kid you not) she gets her little fingers in a pointing gesture and bounces up excitedly when it comes on. We're going to have to find something else for her to get hooked on because I'm starting to hear these songs even when they aren't playing.

Loving: The colder weather that has just started to kick in here & while I'm sure I'll complain about it if it gets really cold, for now I'm loving it. I put flannelette sheets on our bed a couple of nights ago and it was simply magical getting to sleep on them for the first night of winter. 

Working on: A project with my buddy Ally. It's in the early stages at the moment but it's really exciting.

Eating: Scones with jam. Last weekend Luke's Mum & Grandmother came to visit Romy so for afternoon tea we made a batch of scones up, and a few days later when my parents visited they came with a basket of scones in toe. So we've been making the most of this scone run with cups of tea and it certainly has been the weather for it here.

Looking forward to: Season 5 of Pretty Little Liars, I mean, aren't you?

  1. Look at those little slippers! Also looking forward to PLL of course. I read the first Sookie book and thought it was better than the show but never continued reading them for some reason. And also yay for Breaking Bad!


Thanks for stopping by!
