Six Things I’ve Been Doing While I haven’t Been Blogging

1) Playing with my son ~ we are both in love with the new dragon at the playground.

2) Reading ~ Mainly adult books (hence the lack of reviews), but I did read and love Meg Cabot’s All American Girl books. Also I’ve just started As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott

3) Watching Jane Eyre,  finally! I was so excited about this movie and then it came out the day I left the US, and then it didn’t release here until September. Which is crazy as it was a BBC production. Anyway I am happy to report it was well worth the wait. The two leads are fabulous, it’s beautifully shot, and it’s a really good adaptation.

4) Watching TV ~ one good thing about Autumn is the TV. I’m currently loving the second season of Downton Abby, the last *sob* season of Spooks, and the new series of Strictly Come Dancing, Jason Donovan to win!

5) Making Granola, this is so yummy and so easy, but I am eating it like candy!

6) Writing ~ still slogging away here. The word count rising slowly.


  1. What a great list! I love the new Jane Eyre movie, and that granola looks yummy! Good luck writing!


  2. All worthy reasons to not blog–good for you!


  3. Yay! I'm glad you're back, Alexa, but it is awfully nice to have a big break, isn't it? It looks like you've been having FUN! How about that dragon?! Amazing!!! I wish my park had one of those for the mommies–I mean, kiddies. 🙂 Your granola looks so delish, and I can't wait to try your recipe! I'm glad you're doing so well. Enjoy Downton Abbey for me! I'm dying for season two to air here!!!

    By the way, THE NIGHT CIRCUS is so amazing…I'm so glad you posted its gorgeous cover on one of your cover-love posts! Otherwise I doubt I would've heard about it, since it's adult. I am loving it, so THANK YOU!!!


  4. Love the dragon! When I was at mum's I watched all of the first season of Downton Abbey. Don't tell me what happens! It will be May before I see season 2. Have you watched Doc Martin? Loving it! Borrowed the DVDs from mum.

    P.S. Sorry no email…outlook doesn't work on the road. Heading home today though!


  5. i loved Jane Eyre too. I'll definitely be getting that on DVD! Thank for your lovely message on my blog.


  6. Ahh i'm so glad you liked Jane Eyre it was such a gorgeous movie, its become one of my favs.
    is there a second season of Downton abbey?! oh i have to find it. I am in love with that show.
    I completley understand why your blogging has died down.
    Good luck with your writing!


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour 😀
