I haven’t had a chance to read my book for ages. I really should make a bit of time in the evenings but I’m so tired come 9pm after a day of running around after the kiddies, that I can barely stare at the television never mind read! When I was at work I used to read in my lunch break, so that might be the time I take back for myself when I return to work in January.
This week I finished watching the final series of House of Lies. I am gutted there will be no more Kaan & Associates in my life! Kristen Bell played a fantastic role throughout and in the last season plays a new breastfeeding mother. If you’re looking for something new to watch, it’s a great drama but be prepared for lots of swearing and adult scenes.
This week, I baked an old favourite from my school days… Coconut & jam sponge cake. It’s such a 70’s bake but it is totally yummy too. So comforting at this time of year! I’ve also been making some hearty casseroles for dinner which have gone down well.
Last night, I attended a fancy-pants dinner that hubs had organised to celebrate a rather epic achievement at work. I sat on a table with Wayne Hemingway, co-founder of Red or Dead and HemingwayDesign fashion houses. Oh my days. What a night! I wore this Cameo Rose dress with black heels.
Watched this weeks The Walking Dead? You’ll get why I’m putting this here… Apologies for the ear-worm.
This week can’t pass without a nod to the election of a new President in the United States of America. I’m still in a state of disbelief, I think, but the people have spoken. I am saddened that the USA isn’t ready to embrace a first female President. I had hopes that Hilary Clinton could implement paid maternity leave to better support new mothers – somehow, I can’t see Trump doing so. We all remember him saying that pregnancy was an inconvenience, right? I guess we will need to watch this space.
