It is a bit early for me to be getting all excited about the next installment of the Twilight saga films, as it is not due for release until 18th November.  However, I have just read the Twilight graphic novel volume 1 (see my goodreads shelf) and, after firing up my netbook this afternoon, I found a really good trailer for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 on my email home page news.  Check it out here.

I know that the impending arrival of a half-vampire baby is unlikely to be news to… well anyone, which makes the title of the article on the above link doubly misleading.  It is no big ‘reveal’ that Bella gets pregnant, nor does the video actually show you the child.  Hmmm.  Perhaps the author of the article is a little less than enthusiastic about the saga.  Still, it does look good though!  I can’t wait!  I may have to read Breaking Dawn again before the film is released, perhaps these reminders are giving me enough time to do that?!  I’m going to have to fight the urge to do so until I’ve finished one of the other books I’m reading… maybe.

Today was much better at work, I felt a lot more at ease and competent.  It may have been due to the fact that I got out of the office and did a home visit on my own and have gotten stuck in a bit more.  It is also good to know that I am booked on some training now too, to refresh myself on some clinical skills, which will be another useful exercise to fuel my motivation for my job.  Which always helps. 

Also, I have come home today in a good mood, which is another first this week.  Embarrassingly I have been sulking and feeling a little sad to be back at work, exacerbated by nerves I’m sure, but today I got up feeling more positive and it has stuck all day!  It probably helped to talk things out with my hubby, and the fact that I submitted a form to reduce my hours to 30 a week may also be a contributing factor to my current outlook. 

Another change that I have undergone today was smaller, a bit more trivial and prompted by a comment from my good friend Rachel.  We were chatting about books at my desk this afternoon, briefly, as she had received the latest book in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries series (book 11) yesterday.  I commented that I read much slower than I’d like and I’m struggling to read The House at Riverton by Kate Morton, for the book club I missed last night.  Rachel said, ‘if it’s not grabbed you why bother?  Life’s too short’, not exactly verbatim, but along those lines.  I carried on saying that I’m stubborn and very rarely give up on anything once I’ve started it.  But, on my return home, I pulled out my bookmark and will be relisting it on my little amazon bookstore.  Instead I’m going to read The Passage by Justin Cronin, then Rachel will be lending me Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris, whilst she reads my copy of Mr Darcy Vampyre.  I like reading vampire fiction, that’s that.  I wasn’t feeling The House at Riverton, I was un-gripped, so there it is.  I’ll not bother wasting what little time I have, my to-read pile is too big to spend time trudging through something I’m not in the mood to read.  Maybe I’ll pick it up another time.

Finally a decent apron that I would be seen dead (or undead) in!

How much longer do I have to wait?!

I am enjoying watching the first season of True Blood again, but I’ll admit to being impatient for the fourth series.  Even more so now that I saw this via Twitter today…

Oh it looks really good!

Best series ever!

Just watched the series finale of season 3 of True Blood… WOW!  Loved it!  But I can’t believe I have to wait until next year for the next series though 😦 

That SUCKS, please pardon the pun, but it does.  I will be watching all three seasons again, from the beginning, on FX from 19th April.  If you’ve not dipped your toe yet, I couldn’t recommend it enough! 

Hurrah for the Southern Vampire series of books and the (very different but very good) tv series, they’re great!
