Happies & Crappies – 15 – 21 Feb ’14


Ahhh it’s friday! Don’t we all love Fridays? The promise of the weekend ahead, wine, lying in bed and unknown adventures! Though truthfully for me it’s often laziness, potentially a hangover and boredom. Ha! I need a hobby.

The past week in summary…


+ It’s only 3 week to go until We get to see our families in South Africa! We last went home in September 2012 to get married, so it’s been a long time since I got to cuddle my loved ones. Time to shift the counting to days instead of weeks I think. 22 Sleeps! ๐Ÿ™‚

+ I’ve booked Vash into holiday care for while we are away. He’s going to be staying with Sam’s Species so it’s good to know he will be in capable hands while we are on our hols.

+ I’ve been listening to the Books on the Nightstand podcast and totally loving it! I love both books and technology, so a podcast about books is like heaven to me. I feel geeky and intellectual all at the same time. Haha. I listen on the Apple Podcast App while at work and always end up adding a book or 2 to my goodreads.comto read” list along the way.
This week I listened to Ann & Michael talk about audiobooks, and it has prompted me to blow the digital dust off my Audiobook copy of Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett and install the Audible App on my iPhone to listen to it. Though sometimes I find it hard to focus properly on audiobooks I’m slowly getting through it. I am able to listen at work as long as I’m not doing anything that requires reading (I can’t do the 2 together) or too much stop and start. Thankfully this week has been conducive to listening and have had it on the go for most of yesterday and today.


– I had a head cold at the beginning of the week. I started to feel crappy on Sunday when Pete and I went for a walk in the sunshine, and ended up taking Tuesday as a sick day. Thankfully it was short lived and I’m right as rain again.

– Before we moved house in December, my car’s driver door was keyed by some wanker and only just got around to getting a quote for the repair. ยฃ168! ๐Ÿ™ I’m going to see what improvements I can make myself before forking out so much dosh on it.
