reading // Magician by Raymond E. Feist. I am really really enjoying it, it's a whole new fantasy world to delve into, with so many characters and according to my dad, it just gets better and better and better. I could not be any more excited to keep reading this book.
listening // To Glastonbury highlights on BBC2, feeling incredibly rubbish because I'm not there and I definitely have festival blues since I'm not going to one this year. *sob sob*
hoping // That I'm going to continue enjoying my new job that I started this week. I've been lucky enough to land a job even closer to home than my last one, and I'm enjoying it even more at the minute, so that's always good news!
watching // Doctor Who (no change there then). But I've actually decided to rewatch every episode, in order, since the start of the New Generation Doctors, aka, from Chrisopher Eccleston's first series. The reason I'm doing this is because I'm going to Cardiff next weekend to go to the Doctor Who experience there and I am so so so so so so so so so so so (so) excited. Every time I think about it I want to scream with excitement. So yeah, I'm currently nearly halfway through Donna's series- Series 4.
anticipating // So many things! The Doctor Who Experience, a week in Scotland with my family and our family friends (pretty much my second parents and brothers essentially), a week in the sun somewhere we haven't booked yet, hopefully a trip down south to visit Highclere Castle (where Downton Abbey is filmed) and to visit the Harry Potter studio tour. If this trip gets sorted and booked, I can guarantee I'll be bouncing off the walls with excitement.
loving // My new shoes. My mum treated me to a pair of heeled burgundy suede Mary-Janes and I've worn them every day since, even if it's just been to tidy my room or to make some food. There is something about them that make me feel very classy and elegant and I just love love LOVE them.
enjoying // Penny Dreadful. If you follow me over on Twitter (@katy_who) then you'll know that every week when I watch this show I waffle on about how much I adore it. Now, it's only the first series, but never before have I been so captivated by a TV show after so little episodes. It's basically a surreal, freaky, dark, horror thriller set in the Victorian times, with darkly lovable characters (even some famous ones creep in, such as Victor Frankenstein and Dorian Gray), a remarkably talented cast including Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Billie Piper and Timothy Dalton, and some seriously WEIRD storylines. Basically it's everything I've ever wanted in a TV show. Catch it on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday nights, or on Showtime if you're an American reader. Or I'm sure it'll be online somewhere if you look far enough.
How has your life been going lately, doing anything interesting now it's summer? I'd love to hear!
Until next time,
