Weekly Highlights #17

Today’s the last day of the Easter holidays. Tomorrow my kids return to school and I go back to working from my laptop at home.

Lockdown restrictions are slowly easing and the sun is shining (although it’s still been a bit cold).

It’s been a relaxing two weeks; I haven’t really done anything, other than a trip to Oxford, meeting up with family outside in our garden and taking the kids to the barber shop for the first time since December.

I’ve been continuing with the #AtoZBest90sAlbum challenge. Here are the albums I’ve chosen this past week:

You’ll notice the two most recent choices aren’t in alphabetical order: The Martyr Mantras and Happiness. That’s because I couldn’t think of a favourite 90s albums beginning with Q or R, and so played a wildcard for those instead.

These have been all the albums so far: Achtung Baby, Blissed Out, Conscience, Debut, Erotica, Foxbase Alpha, Garbage, Homogenic, I do not want what I haven’t got, janet., Kylie Minogue, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, Maverick A Strike, 99.9F, Odelay, Play, The Martyr Mantras, Happiness

Onto the final stretch with this now: what will I choose for S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z? Stay tuned to find out!

Book-wise, I finally finished reading Last Tango in Aberystwyth by Malcolm Pryce. I’d picked this up in our local Little Free Library; there were a set of four from the series so I thought I’d give it a go.

Although it’s very, very funny, with a warped, absurd, dark sense of humour, I didn’t enjoy this as much as I thought I would. I just didn’t engage with the plot, really, although I did like the humour. I’m not sure if I’ll read the other books in this series.

In other news, I’ll be getting my first vaccination dose this week: I’m so relieved.

I’m also going to my workplace on Wednesday for the first time since early January for a staff event.

I. Cannot. Wait. to see actual colleagues in real life instead of on a screen. I started my job in January and haven’t met most of the people that I work with!

How has your week been?
