I've been awol for a little bit, which has partly to do with doing a lot of tweeting about the Ninja Book Swap, partly to do with doing a lot of crafting and so not having that much time to read, and partly to do with sheer laziness... This week I finished Almost English by Charlotte Mendelson, which was good and I've started writing a review of it which I will finish this week. Really I will. I also started reading The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath for the Classics Spin, and so far it's going better than expected. I remember liking it when I read it last in school, but I actually remember nothing else about it whatsoever, so it's kind of like reading it for the first time, and it's been easy reading so far. As some relief from mental breakdown I'm also reading The Great Fables Crossover (volume 13 in the Fables series) by Bill Willingham, which was my Valentine's/ anniversary present from Rhys, and which is, as usual with the Fables series, also really good.
Because my sister and her boyfriend were down for the weekend, we actually got to go out by ourselves during the evening yesterday and went to the cinema for the first time in like a year. We saw The Monuments Men and it was brilliant. I don't talk about films too much here usually but this film is just amazing. If you have any interest in history or culture or just a really cool story (or George Clooney) you should definitely see it!
So the most important news is that I'm now nearly 22 weeks pregnant and a couple of weeks ago I had my 20 week scan and found out that I'm having another boy! :-) I waited till now to announce it here (and haven't got around to scanning my scan pictures in yet so there's not a picture at the moment) because we had to go back today for a rescan as they couldn't see certain important bits last time and needed to check everything was ok, but this morning the baby was very well behaved and showed them everything they needed to tick off and everything is going really well so far, except that my knee has randomly buggered up this afternoon and I can't crouch, but you know, I'm sure I'll be fine..
There's probably not going to be a huge amount going on here over the next week or two. I have a few posts planned and will hopefully get a review or two finished, but if you want to check out what I'm doing instead, head over to my Etsy shop or my Facebook page!
That's so exciting that you're having another little boy! I'm glad all is going smoothly.ReplyDelete
Also, The Monuments Men is so good. I went on Saturday and adored it. I'm actually going to Bruges in May so I'm going to visit the Madonna :D
Yay, we're like a boy club at the moment :)ReplyDelete
It's all about the boys! Everybody I know is having a boy :-)Delete
