March Round-Up

March Round-Up

March was a very quiet month for me on the blog because I wasn’t here at all!

Having moved into our house at the end of February and going back to work too soon before I had fully recovered, most days were spent sleeping after getting in from work.

Here’s hoping that April is a month where I can finally get back to normal!

How did March treat you?

March Posts

Zero! Zilch! Nada!

Moving house, going back to work and recovering my health led me to take a break from blogging for this month.

March Achievements and Highlights

  • Recovering from surgery and getting almost everything unpacked in our new house.
  • Tidying up our new garden and planting some new plants, ready to create explosions of scent and colour in the summer.
  • Organising World Book Day for the ~700 people in our school!

March Favourites

Food/Drink: Anything easy!

Skincare: Once again, anything easy!

TV/Film: We started to watch Rise of the Phoenixes on Netflix – a Chinese historical drama. There are lots of episodes, so it’s a big commitment but I am completely hooked by the political machinations and backstabbing. Highly recommended!

I also started watching Healer, an old but quite famous Korean drama. I wasn’t initially grabbed by the first episode, but I am now several episodes in and really enjoyed it. Also recommended! (Also, I would probably never have even given it a go, but it was mentioned in Maurene Goo’s I Believe in a Thing Called Love and then appeared on Netflix like magic… It is also available to stream on Youtube with subtitles in multiple languages.)

  1. My March was fairly busy in terms of school (two speaking exams and folios, plus finalising my English dissertation and general work as well) and I had quite a bit going on health wise (day to day symptoms being irritating plus quite a few appointments). I read some excellent books though, which helped!

    SO impressed by how much you managed to read in March (and February!)- I was v slow with it (for me!) for ages after surgery. I add the for me because some people laughed at my being upset I only read 9 and 11 in the 2 months after 😂

    Can’t wait to see pics of the garden in the summer! Have you watched Cable Girls btw? It’s a Spanish drama on Netflix and I watched it earlier this year. Its AMAZING and I love it a lot!
