This weekend I have been... #4

This weekend was full of doing, well, not very much at all. And it was very needed so I wouldn't have wanted to do anything else. I nipped out & bought a new fluffy blanket, a big tub of ice cream (despite the fact it gives me spots - sometimes it's worth it!) and barely moved from my bed. I've been sitting with little Ralphie who hasn't been feeling his usual self (he has a few health problems that he's always had but sometimes they flare up a little more than usual) so lots of cuddles have been needed - he's looking a lot better today though & he's currently tucking into some veggies!

There are so many books that I want to read but I've had to put them aside because I need to finish Little Women for my next assignment. I've been a little distracted with Ralphie so I'm only a couple of chapters in and I can't say I'm enjoying it all that much so far but I guess I haven't given it a fair chance yet. The other option I have for this assignment is Treasure Island and I'm currently trying to decide which is the one I should go for. Which would you choose? 

On Saturday night I was in the mood to watch a really silly film that would make me laugh so we browsed the new releases on iTunes and chose This Is The End. It did the trick, it took my mind of things for a little while and had me chuckling away merrily.

  3. Ooh I've never read Little Women, oddly enough. I might just have to! Ah I need a weekend of chilled nothingness to watch films and read books. (:

  4. I tried to read little women a few months ago but couldn't read too far in without getting distracted by other books, and I've wanted to watch this is the end for ages, it looks hilarious!

  6. Poor Ralphie, I hope he is better soon! My weekend was quiet, the hubby has hurt his leg :( so was resting up and I spent most of yesterday in the little sunshine we got, doing the big tidy up before the winter chill hits! x

  8. I discovered Downton Abbey this weekend and that is pretty much all I did. Wrapped up in a blanket and watched the entire first series and some of the 2nd. Safe to say I am now hooked!

  17. I actually really like Little women you know- but then it's probably because I read it for pleasure :D
    This is the End looks interesting! Will have to check it out.

    Really hope Ralphie gets all better!

  19. I think weekends were designed for not doing much :) and you've been working on assignments so its well deserved I think! :) I'm glad Ralphie is better! xx

  20. I always love reading what you're reading Jennie! I loved Little Woman but I grew up reading it with my mum and gran so it's a little bit sentimental to me! I also read Treasure Island for uni - I would personally pick Little Woman, but I'm a little biased ;) x

  24. I love Little Women, I used to read and read this - I think I might even have an old school library version lying around at my mum's house, but probably shouldn't admit to that! I hope Ralphie feels better soon!

  26. I read Little Women a few years ago, but I can't really remember it all too well, which says it all really as when I love a book it stays with me forever! I may revisit it one day! :)

  27. You should definitely give Little Women a chance it's brilliant and I swear ice-cream is good for everyone secretly!

  28. Oh, how i love your weekend plans, coziness perfection! Mindless movies are the best and you're absolutely on point: sometimes ice cream is worth it even if it gives you spots :) xx

  30. i am the same with ice cream... it gives me spots too but there are times it's definitely well worth it (like last night when i had a chocolate coated ice cream bar...). this is the end is one of those ridiculous yet hilarious films. i loved all the guest appearances! and thanks for the mention dear, made my day! :)

    P.S. Ice cream is definitely worth it!

  33. Oh, I do love these posts of yours. <3
    I hope Ralphie feels much better soon, and that you had a nice relaxing weekend.

    I didn't expect to like This Is The End as much as I did. But it was so funny, my favourite part being the end with the Backstreet Boys performing!

  35. Hands down for me it would be Treasure Island, I really didn't get on with Little Women, I find it to be one of those books that if you didn't read it at the right age you will never really have the fondness that others have for it. Treasure Island is a classic adventure, definitely more my sort of thing :) xx
