In my private life
It’s been sunny for two weeks here and it’s such a blessing for the soul!
My week went pretty well until this morning, when my mom of 82 years old told me she couldn’t come visit me because she had a light on her dashboard telling her there was a problem with the motor oil.
My mom is a widow and has a Volkswagen Polo of 3 years so basically a new car as she does not drive a lot.
Digging deeper, she confessed that she had a message asking her to go for the annual check for months but “her sister told her just to ignore it as she didn’t drive a lot”!
For heaven’s sake!!!
Followed me lecturing my mother about phoning the car shop (you know, the one who specializes in selling and repairing cars, unlike my godmother…) when she had a message and even more so, a light on her dashboard!
I ended up feeling guilty as I saw that I had stressed her a lot yet it was also necessary to make her get it!
Now she is really an independent woman so seeing herself diminished somehow or not grasping what was serious or not hurt her and..me.
When your kids are old enough to fly with their own wings, your parents age and need you… sigh.
All while indeed what I want to do is watch Bridgerton season 2! LOL
I hijacked the TV yesterday to watch the first two episodes while my husband courageaously fled the living room to go watch his things on his computer.
It seems that rakish viscounts are not a priority on his life’s list…
What can I say, I love seeing all the gowns and listening the the gossips and jabs. It’s a nice refreshment from the horror happening at the moment.
Oh and to end up on a light and funny note, I’ll leave you with another reel of mine.

I did better this week as I had planned all my reviews last Sunday!
So I ended up posting three reviews and a Top Ten Tuesday
Also this week I DNFd two romance books: one because I found the characters so immature (while they are teenagers so of course they would be immature) and the other because it was instant attraction and the heroine was so gullible and…I learned there was cheating.
Why does it seem that me, a die hard romance reader, have become very picky when romance is involved???
Thanks for reading!
