The overarching theme of this week has been illness. I came home early on Monday and went back to bed because I felt so bad, and I was really relieved when an all day workshop I had scheduled for Wednesday was cancelled. I started to feel better Thursday, then got hit with a sore throat and cold. :(
Work wise, the main things I had was Healthier Communities scrutiny committee on Thursday, looking at the impact of the benefit cap on Torfaen, and advice surgery on Saturday. Next week I'll have more social stuff to go to because I'm covering for the mayor while she has a knee operation.
On Friday I actually went out in the evening for something not work related. There was a fundraising Ladies' Night on at the local workman's club - over £2,500 was raised! Today we're going up to Anthony's parents because it's his mum's birthday.
☆ READING: Check out my September book reviews.
☆ WRITING: My budget progress report for September.
☆ WATCHING: How To Murder Your Wife. This 2015 New Zealand black comedy is based on a real murder case from the 1970s and deservedly won a whole bunch of awards. It's on YouTube, so there's no excuse not to give it a go!
☆ LISTENING: I Got You - Split Enz.
☆ WEARING: Jewellery - I wrote a post this week about what I own.
☆ EATING: Well, I've been drinking lots of tea. I even made it my theme for this week's #FridayFrivolity linky post.
☆ REVIEWING: I was invited to have a look around Circulate furniture recycling last week. I wrote it all up HERE.
I changed the blog commenting system again, from Disqus to CommentLuv. CommentLuv was literally the only thing I envied about WP as a blogging platform, so I'm really pleased that IntenseDebate have updated it since last time I tried and it's now working fine on Blogger. :) I also posted a list of the linkies you can join up with on Tuesdays.
