Weekly Rundown: Blizzarding!

I'm late with my Weekly Rundown post this week, mainly because I've spent best part of the day uploading almost all of the other posts for the next six days. You'll also be pleased to learn that I've finally gotten around to watching The Desolation of Smaug for my next Hobbit film review set of posts.

So I'm late because I've been organised. Go figure.

I'm also a little bit late because I got distracted reading House fanfiction. Yeah, yeah, I know, it's like I'm a teenager again. What's more than a little ironic is that I stumbled across one that I vaguely remembered and I happily sat here reading it. It wasn't until I got to the end of the second chapter that I realised it was one that I'd written. Oops, hehe. And it wasn't too bad either.

We've almost finished the first series of House now and I'd forgotten how much I love this show. I've seen the first couple of series enough times to vaguely remember what will happen, but not well enough to remember everything, so it's almost like watching a brand new TV series. I can't wait til we get to the later episodes that I've only seen once or not at all.

I'm still reading The Lord of the Rings. I'm not reading a very portable edition and so it's fairly slow going. Especially since my Fitbit has made me very aware of my sleeping patterns. I'm trying to turn the light out earlier to make sure that I'm hitting my sleep targets. Unfortunately that impacts on my reading time. I'm thinking in the next week I'm going to have to have a bit of a push to try and read two chapters a day otherwise it'll be the only book I read this year!

I'm still managing my Middle-earth walking. There's only one day when I've not managed my full 1.2 miles and that was purely because I woke up in an icy winter wonderland on Friday. I was half expecting to need to call into work because the road through the estate was iced over, but we made it off okay.

Yesterday we made up for it by going for an extra long walk, and again in the evening because it had been snowing all afternoon. I love snowy weather, so I dragged a reluctant Mr Click and an excitable Tara-Tup out with me.

There was that monochromatic thing going on out in the world as though someone had turned the saturation way down, and although you can't see it in this photo, there were massive snowflakes falling.

It's almost all gone today, of course, but it was pretty while it lasted.


  1. Funny how getting organized has slowed you down. I'm sure things'll speed back up again once you get accustomed to being organized.

    1. Hehe. I'm getting there gradually. It's amazing the difference it's made to getting my blog posts written. And I thought I was organised with them before.


Let me know what you think. :-)
