Currently… 22nd April

In a blatant act of imitation being the sincerest form of flattery I am borrowing this post idea from the lovely Hannah who starts every week with a list of things that she is up to. So here is my list of things keeping my attention at the moment.


We are big TV watchers in our house, we are currently looking at whether we want to keep our sky subscription or give it up in favour of just having netflix. Watch this space. But the TV shows we’re currently loving are:

Modern Family – One of few programmes we watch on the day they air. This funny, sweet sitcom is so uplifting.
Elementary – Love this show. When I first heard that they had Lucy Liu on board to play Watson I was really anti, but she has totally won me over!
Person of Interest – This was originally a netflix find but we are now watching it on channel 5 on real telly.
Masterchef – We’re into finals week for this year!
Bear Grylls The Island – We loved this last year and are really enjoying the boy/girl split this year.

I’m sure there are lots lots more, but these are the main ones this week.


Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout – This was on the TV over winter but we didn’t watch it, I picked the book up in the charity shop. It is ok, but I’m not enamoured with it. I want a more in depth story instead of lots of little ones with a few of the same characters. I’ll persevere.
Pillow Talk by Freya North – picked up at the same time as Olive. I’ve just started it in between readings of Olive for a break. I haven’t gotten very far.

Looking forward to

We have a busy May coming up, lots of exciting things to do! One of my lovely girls is getting married at the start of the month and my sister turns 30, so we have a party and a girly weekend away!

So there we have it, a brief window on my world. I’m sure I will expand on this more as the weeks go on, but this is just a little look…
