My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
I hope you all had a good weekend. I’ve had a pretty slow weekend after a really busy week. I was glad to slow down this weekend and get back in front of the computer and get a lot of writing done.
But let me tell you all about our holiday week.
Me and my mum were off work this week, but my brother worked bank holiday Monday before being in college (sixth form) Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Monday was an ‘at-home’ day spent recovering from work at the weekend. My brother got stuck wit the very busy last day of eat out to help out. I feel sorry for anyone in food who had to work that day. It will have been very, very busy.
Tuesday we went out in the afternoon after looking after my Gran. She been doing pretty badly recently and she needs someone to come in and make her lunch as well as having carers in twice a day. It’s difficult seeing her like that, but she seems to have adapted to everything really well. We left for Ribchester straight after that. Not that I knew that when we left. My dad likes surprising us on little trips like that by just taking us in some random direction and surprising us when we get there.
Ribchester was a really quiet little village, but the main car park and playground that the town seemed to be built around was really busy. A lot parents and kids making the most of the last sun before the kids (finally) go back to school. We explored the town and I took some really nice photos of the river and the church.
It was a short day but I had a lot of fun walking in the sun.
Wednesday I had another day in front of the computer but I got some reading, tv watching and animal crossing done. I am slowly becoming addicted to animal crossing, fishing and sea diving.
When did that get added to the game?
I’m trying to fill my museum and collect all the bugs and fish available for this month before the end of September. I’ve caught some huge sharks and other fish. Does anyone else wonder how they fit in my tiny pockets?
Thursday was my parents wedding anniversary so they went out on their own for the day. Normally I would have no problem being left on my own in the house all day but I was in the mood to get out of the house and be around people other than my family and co-workers. I wanted to people watch and browse book shops and eat in a restaurant on my own, something I haven’t done since before lockdown. I miss the big city! Being in Liverpool was amazing. I think I just spent about two hours sat on the big stone steps just around the corner from the docks and listened to a busker play at the piano they have there for people to play on when they want and read one of my brand new books that I bought at Waterstones that morning.
It was so good to be back in a bookshop!
I also bought myself some Lego and five pop figures, most of which were on offer.
We are almost to the end of the week, stick with me!
Friday we had planned to go to North Wales for the day. My dad wanted to go to an arts and crafts shop in Mostyn. It seems a long way to go to get arts and craft supplies but my dad was looking for some very particular things that you can’t get at Hobbycraft. It was also a great excuse to go for a drive up the Orme at Llandudno and to go to Colwyn and drive round the town and see the sea. I did buy a diamond art kit on Friday. My bestie loves them and she made me one for my birthday and I wanted to have a go. I haven’t started it yet but I will keep you updated. Depending on how fiddley it is I may do more of these, or this may be the only one I ever do.
I hope you have all realised that I have had a much better week this week than I did last week. It feels good to have enjoyed a week as much as I have. I feel a bit more myself and I’m almost ready to go back to work … almost.
I hope you’ve all had a good week and I’ll see you all next time!
