It's been a week of two halves here; the first half was mega relaxing as I was the only one home (my husband had returned to work) and the second was busy-busy when I went back to work myself. And then I had a relaxing weekend, so it's been up and down!
Going back to work was fine, I've been back for two days but the children don't actually return until tomorrow. I'm pretty nervous for this; although I've met my class once, the first day of actually being the teacher of a new class is always scary. I'm expecting to be pretty busy with work stuff for the next few weeks, but luckily I have lots of reviews already scheduled as I read so much over the holidays, so there should still be new content on my blog.
This weekend, I've mainly been spending time at home with my husband. We've spent six weeks being together pretty much all day every day, so going back to work and spending time apart actually felt pretty strange! On Friday we had some friends round for a cocktail night, which was a lot of fun and the perfect way to unwind. Apart from that, there's been a lot of sleeping in and a lot of episodes of Buffy being watched. The weather has suddenly got a fair bit colder, so it's been nice to stay in and snuggle up in the warm.
This week, I've been reading:
Warm Bodies was my first read for RIP, and as much as it was great to get started with the challenge, I didn't love the book. But it wasn't bad and it was short, so it was an OK read. Fevre Dream is my second RIP book and it's much better so far; who knew George R.R. Martin could write horror as well as fantasy? Out of Africa is my classics club spin book, I'm reading it quite leisurely as it's that kind of book, and it's certainly a masterpiece.
