Yesterday was the four year anniversary of my Mum's passing so me and my siblings went for some lunch and then for a drink at the pub across the road to toast her. It's a difficult day but it helped being with my brothers and sister, getting to talk and spend some time together as we're always so busy these days. The food at the café was delicious though, I got a hot chocolate with everything and a BLT with fries. I also couldn't resist getting a massive slice of the lemon meringue cake to take home.   

I've been struggling with college work lately and had a full blown anxiety attack on Tuesday in front of my tutor. I think all my stress and emotion just reared it's head, embarrassing but we talked and I know that I need to get myself on track if I want to qualify. She's coming out again this week so hopefully we'll have a more productive session. 


 I'm currently reading:

The Gone & the Forgotten by Clare Whitfield, a 90's set coming of age/mystery about a 16 year old girl who travels to a remote Scottish Isle for the summer and discovers some hidden family secrets that turn her world upside down. Almost finished - 7% to go! 
The Extraordinary Adventures of Alice Tonks by Emily Kenny, a middle grade set in a boarding school, where a young autistic girl called Alice discovers she can talk to animals and must solve the mystery of different animals disappearing. Only a couple of chapters in but enjoying it so far.     
The Last to Vanish by Megan Miranda which is a thriller about a journalist going missing in a resort town and the manager of the local inn who finds herself involved with the investigation. Just started!

Still working my way through ER. On to episode 7 of the fifth season and loving the new character of Lucy Knight! 

I've also jumped back into Shetland recently after a bit of a pause. I've finished series 3 and just started series 4. If you're not familiar with this show, it's a police procedural that investigates murders occurring on the Shetland Islands in Scotland. Gritty but really engrossing and well acted.     

Currently obsessed with this song by JC Stewart, particularly this stripped back version on Spotify. 

• On My Radar (March)
• TTT - Valentines edition
• WWW Wednesday
• Five Survive by Holly Jackson (Review)

Let me know what you've been up to this week with a comment, whether it's reading, watching or just life, I'd love to know! Happy Reading!
