Do you have plans for this weekend? I’m soaking up the sunshine at home. I never realise how much I miss the bright sunlight of the Mediterranean until I’m back. The same goes for my mum’s cooking.
Here are some interesting links from the past week…
It’s always good to make sure your running form is up to scratch.
Pregnant or not, this is hilarious.
Well, here are some completely non-essential kitchen gadgets.
King Arthur and Oxford.
I sometimes catch myself saying things like this.
I’m definitely going to try this delicious sounding recipe.
Let’s try and save the bees.
I hope you are having a wonderful May so far!

I’m home for a little holiday! I’m so looking forward to getting some much needed rest. I’m dreaming of lazy mornings spend baking with my mum, sunny afternoons at the beach and cool evening dinners on our balcony.
Hopefully, I will stay on top of posting; there are some bookish discussions and reviews as well as a delicious recipe for a traditional Greek Easter bread coming up.
Now, I’m off to soak up some sunshine!
Wow time flies when you are reading! My readathon was off to a rocky start as, about an hour in I went for a long lunch to a wonderfully picturesque country pub with The Boy and a friend. So up until hour 5 I had actually done very little reading.
But after a short nap I made myself comfortable and I have now read almost 200 pages. There’s a lot of strange things happening in The Observations but I still can’t figure out what’s going on, who’s lying and who’s trustworthy. Which, of course, only makes me want to read more!
I think I’ll have a break soon, if only to consume some of my snacks. I still haven’t gone on to any other blogs to check out how other readathoners are faring but I’ve been loving all the bookish conversations on Twitter. I would also like to participate in a couple of mini challenges; how nice was the yoga one a couple of hours ago?
Ok, before I start reading I thought I’d answer the introductory questions. Here it goes…
1) I’m reading from Oxford. It’s quite chilly and looks like it’s about to start raining, i.e. perfect weather to stay in and just read!
2) I don’t have a stack this time. But I am very curious to see what happens next in the book I’m currently reading, The Observations by Jane Harris.
3) As always, the bag of Doritos is my favourite snack. Although this time I made some effort to keep the rest of the snack pile quite healthy (apples, carrots, houmous, raspberries and greek yogurt).
4) I wish I could spend my life baking and eating cake. And reading.
5) As in previous readathons, I am very relaxed and not particularly interested in reading an impressive number of pages. For me, it’s more about enjoying some reading time, eating tasty treats and interacting with all of you!
Happy reading everyone!
Less than an hour to go until the Readathon begins! I’m as excited as ever but this time I am thoroughly unprepared. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to participate at all and, even now, I’m not sure how many hours I’ll be able to devote to having Readathon fun. So, unlike previous times, I haven’t bought my snacks yet and I haven’t put together my book list.
I think I’ll just continue reading what I’ve been reading this week, which is The Observations by Jane Harris. I’m really enjoying it and, reading it is quite addictive so I think it’s a great book for the Readathon.
Now, I think I’ve got just about enough time to pop to the shop and get some kind of healthy-ish snacks. Plus Doritos.
Are you participating in the Readathon? It’s not to late to join!
