Sunday post 81, It's Monday, What are you reading? 66
The Sunday Post - a chance for bloggers to have a chat and a catch-up - is hosted by Kimba, here: https://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ and It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Kathryn, here: https://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/
I've been absent a couple of weeks, but I'm trying to go into 2018 with good habits and intentions, so let's see how well this goes.
We had a quiet Christmas at home, just the three of us. It was nice, and also timely, as spawn spiked a fever. I think it was an ear infection and it passed after a couple of days, but it would have been miserable for him if we had been out and about.
I've been working through - I haven't been there long enough to request holidays and we do have the stat days off anyway, so a couple of long weekends are nothing to complain about.
Work is going well. Sometimes I still have a mild shock that after so long I actually found a job, but here I am. Salaried and contributing and paying taxes and everything. And fretting about childcare - lol.
I took spawn to see The Last Jedi yesterday, and we both enjoyed it. Overall I preferred The Force Awakens but The Last Jedi was good. I also started my annual new cross-stitch project and Lord of the Rings rewatch last night. What can I say, when I party, I go hard out.
As for reading, I'm doing the #TheDarkisReading readalong of The Dark is Rising on the twitter. I decided to re-read the whole series and I'm up to book four, so my first read of 2018 will be The Grey King. Speaking of reading, I tanked my Goodreads goal so badly. So, so, so badly.
So for 2018 my reading goal is 52 books - pretty sure I can manage one a week. I also want to try and watch one movie a week. We'll see how that goes.
As far as resolutions go - I do want to set some goals, but my resolutions are the same as last year, I think: read more, drink more water, be kind.
What about you? How's your week? What are you reading?
