This and That Thursday


It is time for my second This and That Thursday! I haven’t started another jigsaw this week although I do have one planned to start. This week I have done a lot more reading.

So here is what I have been up to…

Cross stitch

I had a massive Cross stitch for Christmas off my husband and I have been tackling it bit by bit. It is the largest Cross stitch I have ever attempted and I really want to complete it but it will take a very long time. Should keep me busy through lockdown.


Criminal Minds and Elliptical Machine

I discovered Criminal Minds on Amazon Prime, I love this show but over recent years haven’t really watched it. So I have started watching it right from the very beginning and when I watch an episode I exercise on my Elliptical machine as well so at least I’m not just sat down constantly.



This week I have really enjoyed blogging and reading people’s blogs. It has really been fun seeing what people have been up and what they have been reading, I now have a very long wish list of books I want to buy.



We have a group of bird feeders outside our window and I have been enjoying drinking tea and watching the birds. I got very excited when I saw our first Greenfinch in the garden.



I have also done some teaching this week over Skype and Zoom which felt very strange to begin with but it was lovely to see my students again and see the progress they are making.

So that is my little update for the week. Drop me a comment with what you have been up to this week.

  1. I can’t remember the last time I did cross-stitching but I remember how very much enjoy doing it. I love the pattern you’re working on! As for me, I’ve been working from home for 10 days now and I’m not liking it to be quite honest. I feel caged but well, it’s for our safety so better stay home than get sick, right? Keep safe.

    1. I’m finding it quite relaxing in an evening although it can be stressful when the silk won’t thread on the needle! I’m an instrumental teacher and performer and it’s been really odd not working like I usually do. Some students are having lessons online and that is proving to be very interesting but it is better to be safe than sorry. Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe.
