This Week #49

Y mae dafad ddu ym mhob praidd - There's a black sheep in every flock.
Life This Week

It's been all about work this week. I've had planning, joint scrutiny, police and crime panel, school governors, deputy mayor engagements and more. Marianna had her first session of 'Talking Tots', a playgroup intervention for children who are behind with their speech. Personally I don't think there is any worry at all with her speech development, but the health visitor thought differently so Anthony had to take her to the group on Thursday morning. Apparently she was the only kid who turned up so just played at the water table with a bunch of adults. ...Kind of like her normal life then!

I didn't do much else this week, though on Saturday we went to Anthony's parents for a little farewell dinner for Nat, who is off to study drama at Birmingham Met. :)

This Week, I 'ave Been Mostly...

☆ READING: I popped in the charity shop on Friday to get Marianna some new (well, new to her) books, as they're three for a pound in Shaw Trust. I got her a great one all about sharks.

☆ WRITING: Murder on my Doorstep. Growing up I always dismissed the stories people told about a house on the street as made up, but it turns out that a murder really was committed there, back in 1948...

☆ WATCHING: Happy Valley, courtesy of Netflix. I've only seen the first series so far but it was really good - I stayed up way too late to see the end of it!

 LISTENING: I can't get the Chives song from The Herbs out of my head, thanks to Marianna's latest TV obsession:

Because there are so many chives, all looking like each other,
It makes it even hard to tell a sister from a brother!

☆ WEARING: The deputy mayoral chain... I went to the Torfaen Business Expo on Friday, you can read my write up on it over here.

☆ EATING: We had a Chinese takeaway at Kay and Shawn's on Saturday which was very nice!

☆ REVIEWING: Some of my weird dreams...

I put together a list of editorial calendar ideas for September, wrote about Autumn for this week's #FridayFrivolity linky, and launched a new competition in collaboration with Warner Bros:
