No Books allowed October

Can you believe October is almost over? Here's what I've been up to this month.

Work has been mega busy, lots of late night and lots of marking now the kids coming to the end of the first half term. This has meant I have been chained to my laptop or pile of marking and not done much else. However I do have two exciting things I have been up to.

Firstly I got to attend the wedding reception of my lovely friends Lyndsey and John. Some of you know Lyndsey from page after page reviews so check out the picture below. For the event I helped out with the catering and impressed even myself in managing to produce 50 mini cheesecakes and 50 mini key lime pies and transport them to venue without ruining them (without ruining them was the more impressive feat) with the add of my happy helper Lauren.

The other exciting thing I did this month was attend the grand opening of the Royal Norfolk Regimental Museum opening. I have been working with a small group of students and a colleague (check her out in the picture below with her cartoons) on a project for the the new exhibitions at Norwich castle for over a year now. Evening was lovely. I got to eat Canapes in the castle itself and listen to the brass band from the castle balconies. It was all far too exciting even if I did get the dress code completely wrong.

Currently watching Game of Thrones season one on Blu Ray and not at all enjoying it. Going to stick it out to the end of the series but doubt I'll carry on. Is it just me? Everyone else I talk to seems to love it.

I'm now about to be on half term so looking forward to some time to myself and some half term adventures but you'll have to wait until next month to hear about those

It took me AGES to get into Game of Thrones. I felt like I was the only one who didn't get it. I stuck with it though on the insistence of my sister and a few others and I got into it in the end. I don't love it though - still find it predictable and slow moving at times, but I do enjoy some of the character arcs. There are some big surprises too as you go on!
Awww, I love that picture! :)
