Happy Sunday and welcome to another weekly update where I share a little about what’s happened to me this week and the books I’ve reviewed.
Review wise, there wasn’t a lot – just one book, which I didn’t enjoy too much (Open House by Katie Sise). It wasn’t that there was anything wrong with it as such. It just fell flat for me. I also posted about other reviews that are popular on my blog, though I wasn’t sure why because they were 5+ years old.
Life wise, things were much busier than the blog. Last Sunday, we did a 7K walk along our local beach before stopping at a small Brazilian cafe with wonderful ‘home-cooked food’ and cakes to die for (no photo because we ate them too quickly, but here are a few of the beach, where the sun came out on the way back).
We’re trying to get into our habit of walking every weekend during lockdown (especially as we seem to be having some sunny days right now). Today we’re off to try and find the Waintstones, which is supposed to have some of the best views in the area.
I’m also trying to make full use of my Friday’s off now I’m no longer having to work them to catch up with everything that isn’t getting done during my standard work days. This week, I painted the stairs. I did an ombre effect going up, which has worked better than I’d hope. Next Friday, I’ll finish them off with some varnish and share a photo if it all works.
And that’s it for this week. How has your week – reading and otherwise?

What a lovely place to walk, It’s too hot and wet here for the beach right now.
I look forward to seeing your stair effect.
Wishing you a great reading week

Unfortunately we never get really hot, well not for long. But with the beach I don’t mind.
The beach looks lovely! It is snowing here so no nice walk for me!
It really is. We like to go for sea glass first thing. I like snow, but don’t want any now – it’s too close to spring.
These pictures make me want to visit!
It’s a lovely, if underrated part of the UK.
Oh wow- love the beach pics! looks so beautiful and windswept there!
Thank you. We were a bit windswept on the way ‘out’. Thankfully the weather improved on the way back. I do love the sea.
How beautiful! I am walking with Lulu almost every day but she hated the snow we got. It only snows about 1-2 days a year here in North Carolina so it’s already melting. We walked a long route today and saw some kids trying to sled on the edge of the golf course.

Thank you. I feel lucky this is 15/20 minutes from my house!
That looks like a beautiful walk. I hope you’ll get to enjoy some more 😉
It really is – one of our favourites x
