This week I went to Zumba. I’ve been a handful of times before and in a fairly cynical ‘I used to be a dancer’ kind of way, have never really found it challenging. Plus, I’m not really the kind of person who enjoys exercising these days – since having children I’d much rather find myself slumped on the sofa come 7pm than gear myself up to go out! But this week I decided to throw myself into it and there were a couple of new dances I’d not done before. Suffice to say that I was aching all over the next day!
I also finished the current book I was reading “The Paris Wife” by Paula McLain, a book about Ernest Hemingway and his first wife. I’m going to be honest and say I shed a little tear over how unfair the story really was, considering much of it was true. I’m all for being realistic but sometimes I like to have happy endings!
This meant that I could then start a new book which was “Double Cross” by Malorie Blackman. It’s number 4 in a series and although it’s meant for teenagers I’ve really enjoyed reading them. Plus, I know a book is good when I’ve been reading it for two days and I’m 332 pages in!
This book is second to last in a pile I’ve accumulated over the past few months so I’m now on the lookout for any good reads. Feel free to recommend some to me!
I’m linking this up with Emma’s “Monday Me” over at the Mini Mes and Me. Pop over there to check out some more Monday Me entries.
