My Week

I’ve now moved nearly everything I need for the next year into my other half’s place, I’ve got my timetable for my first week at uni, and I’ve been generally doing various productive things.  We also met up with a few friends from school for dinner and Matt and I took an impromptu date to the zoo.  I start my course on Monday which I’m very nervous about but hopefully it’ll be great!  That means I’ll have a lot less free time from now on (though I’m hoping I can settle into a routine reasonably quickly), so I’m not sure how much blogging/reading will get done.  It does mean though I can begin my audiobook experiment in earnest, and I’ll be starting with Beauty Queens which I borrowed from the library.  I’ve listened to a little already, and I think I should be able to get the whole thing done as part of my commute this week if it turns out me and audiobooks get along – wish me luck!

My Week

So I missed the recap for last week as I was away for the weekend, but I didn’t have anything exciting to report anyways! This week was my last week at work so I’ve had a crazy week trying to get things done before I finished.  Matt came home from his Masters at last this week, so I’ve got a little time off with him to chill out, catch up and also do lots of preparation before my course starts.

Haven’t been up to too much else this week really except Bloggiesta, which started on Thursday and I’ve made pretty good progress on.  I haven’t finished everything, but I don’t mind carrying a few of my goals over to keep working on after Bloggiesta finishes.

Solitaire – For review [Edelweiss]

My Week

I’ve had a manic but good week.  I’ve been at work during the week obviously, but then I’ve been babysitting and cooking every evening, so I haven’t had much free time to be honest. Then Friday I went straight from work up to visit Matt.  He’s got lots of dissertation work to do (less than 2 weeks left!), so I’ve been having a very geeky weekend indulging in Harry Potter Fanfiction while he’s working! Then in the evenings we’ve been watching The Vampire Diaries (season 5), generally catching up and eating lots of nice food 🙂

Fangirl [Purchased]

My Week

This week has felt very slow – I basically have nothing to report!  Work has been unexciting, and I think it’s felt even slower thanks to my weekend away.  I went out for a leaving do for someone on Friday which was nice, and we’re going out for dinner tomorrow for Mothers’ Day, but that’s about it.

Other than that, I’ve re-started watching Once Upon a Time and been taking part in Bloggiesta this weekend.

My Week

Oh dear! Well, this week I finally started taking a step out of my reading slump I think.  I’m up visiting Matt at uni this weekend too, which is why blogging has been virtually non-existent!  We had a night out on Friday, and other than that we’ve mostly just been socialising with his housemates and catching up on some TV.  Last night we watched Catching Fire with chinese take out, and for tonight’s film (as yet undecided) we’ve got steak and then I’ve got some coffee ice cream I’m excited about!  I’ll be heading home tomorrow, and I’ll also be taking part in Bloggiesta next weekend (although I haven’t done my sign up post yet), so things should start heading back to normal on the blogging front pretty soon 🙂

Finished: Fire and Bitterblue

Up Next: First up I’m going to try and finish The Silver Chain, because it’s been on the go for what feels like forever!  After that I’m not sure – whatever jumps out at me on my kindle while I’m on the train!
