TGIF Look Back – 6th April

Welcome to TGIF Look Back it just takes a few minutes: to play along, just answer the following questions with some Friday feeling…do one or all, whatever you feel like because it’s Friday 🙂

FUNNY – What made you laugh this week?

READING – What were you reading this week?

INSPIRED – What inspired you this week? 

DREAM – What were you dreaming about this week?

ANGEL – Who was your angel/star of the week?

YUCK – What made you go ‘ewwww’ this week?

My TGIF Look Back…

FUNNY – I’ve never had an iPhone and so I’d not really come across the whole ‘auto correct’ thing until recently when we got an iPad. This week when I got a message from a work colleague telling me “I’ve eaten the knickers off the shelf in the office – sorry!” I did have to wonder where the underwear had come from, why he would have eaten them and finally – why would he tell me about it? Auto correct was not my first thought, but was obviously his when I received a follow-up text confirming it was my SNICKERS he’d eaten and not some random pants…anyway, after having a good giggle at this I went in search of more inspiring auto corrects and found some very funny ones – enjoy!

READING – Have read quite a lot this week – two books and reviews over the weekend (Bites and Alice Parker’s Metamorphosis) and am currently reading Shadowland by CM Gray.

INSPIRED – After watching Contagion on Sunday night, I was inspired to update our zombie/apocalypse – don’t worry – it’s not real, just a silly conversation a friend and I had one afternoon when avoiding work last year – but our ‘fictional’ plan needed updating and we definitely need to make friends with some people who have actual skills other than writing and sarcasm, otherwise I think we’ll be zombie-fodder.

DREAM – Nope – just sleeping 🙂

ANGEL – Angel / stars of the week for me are the lovely bloggers who accepted Hope’s Daughter for reading/reviewing this week. Hope you enjoy it!

YUCK – Quiet week on the ‘eeewww’ stuff – can’t think of anything…
Happy holidays to everyone off over the bank holiday weekend – not too much chocolate 🙂

ANGEL – Who was your angel of the week?

YUCK – What made you go ‘ewwww’ this week?

My TGIF Look Back…

FUNNY – Breakfast radio made me laugh a lot this week – to the point that I probably looked rather crazy laughing like a hyena on the way to work 🙂

READING – I’ve done very little reading this week, partly because I’ve been trying to concentrate on doing some writing and also because we’ve been preparing features for a major indie author event in May…So all this leaves me about 30 pages into The Passage…

INSPIRED – I’ve mostly been inspired to buy books this week – there’s been lots of interesting authors coming through our emails at aside from writing I’ve added a load more books to my Kindle TBR pile – so much for clearing it down! 🙂

DREAM – Very mixed, however, there have been lots of steep hills figuring in my dreams in various guises, whether I’m dream-driving or dream-walking…usually means that I’m preoccupied with a difficult decision to make as I find it an uphill struggle.

ANGEL – Angel / star of the week for me is a lovely little boy named Ted, he’s from Manchester and is just five years old. Currently he’s undergoing treatment for leukemia and has been helping a local radio station raise £50k in just one week for children in the same situation. The story of how he and his family have coped with his condition really touched me – there’s a little picture of him from yesterday on my facebook page – needless to say – I’ve sponsored him 🙂

YUCK – Anyone who knows me well will recall I’m not the best around feathery things – I don’t mind birds at a distant but close up with the flapping and everything? Just ewwwwww…Anyway – for work this week I had to go to an area of our building literally swarming with giant seagulls and pigeons – even between me and a pane of glass it gave me the heebie jeebies – that’s like Room 101 for me!

New Weekly Meme – TGIF!

This week I was looking around for some inspiration for a new regular blog post to do…I liked doing the WWW Wednesday hosted by  Should Be Reading and will probably be doing that pretty frequently – although this week I’m still stuck in the middle of The Passage, it’s a HUGE book, so it killed my chances of completing the March reading challenge as well as doing the feature!

Anyway – what will I be doing for my own meme? Well, I liked the idea of looking back at the week gone by and thinking about the good, bad and ugly…so I’ll be launching ‘TGIF Look Back’ and featuring it each week on my blog, there are six different things to think about each week connected to the letters F R I D A Y 🙂  Sounds simple enough, take a look at what my week has been like when I do the first feature tomorrow
