It’s Monday and I seem to have forgotten that it’s Monday

It’s 720 am and the kids are still asleep! Or at least they’re still quiet and in bed. The 4yo has been having a bit of a runny nose and cough over the weekend so hopefully he can make it for swim class later.

We’ve had a fun weekend. On Saturday, went to Shoreline Park in Mountain View for some cycling, scootering, pedal-boating and picnicking with friends. We spent pretty much the whole day out in the park. It was just lovely!

It’s been a rather mild winter here in NorCal (well not like we have harsh winters). We had a few days before the winter break with some frost on the ground but nothing since. There’s signs of rain this week so hooray!



Two Serious Ladies – Jane Bowles



Season 2 of The Good Place. I adore this show! It’s got a fun cast (Ted Danson! Kristen Bell!) and such a great premise (the after life). We recently picked up a new TV and it came with a coupon for Sling TV and so I finally got to watch more episodes of this fantastic show – Netflix only has the first season.


Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with the kids. The Stephen Fry-narrated version of course!


I just had some chocolate cake and toast.


Yorkshire Gold


Last night we cooked up some butter-basted ribeye steak on the stove – so good!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


  1. Chocolate cake and toast? Mmm, yes, please.
    Thirdsies on “The Good Place”. I also loved her in “House of Lies”, which is not all funny, but it’s one of my favourites and does have a lot of LOL moments (but also some brutally smart/painful ones).
