Welcome to my feature Chuckles Weekend Roundup where I will be looking at what books I've received, anything interesting I've done or bought or watched and other random stuff. I'll be taking a look back at what happened in my blogging world too, sort of like The Sunday Post that some of you do!
Please note that I'll be visiting your STS/SP as normal, but I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow DISQUS to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I am the only one who does that on my social media! I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. Sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me because I deleted my account with them but I will persevere as it only happens the odd time!
Another busy week ends and another one looms on the horizon! I've been very busy this week getting things done around the house, see my Chuckles Chuntering post for what I've been doing, and this next week will be pretty much more of the same to finish off some tasks inside the house. I'm toying with the idea of taking a week of rest from the blog the week after or at least some reduced activity to recharge my tired batteries! I'll make a decision on that at the end of next week though. It has been busy but I'm pleased with productivity! The weather has been a bit cold for painting though so no more action on that side of things.
As I have had a good few productive weeks I decided to treat myself to a few paperback books as a wee reward! You do have to treat yourself sometimes, don't you! I've got a bit of reading done and some TV watching so that is pleasing. As I write this today, the political intrigue in the UK hits fever pitch as we await news on an upcoming leadership contest. Things like that are pretty exciting for a politics fan like me! It could be an interesting few weeks. Well I need something to fill the gap left by Game of Thrones!

I watched season two of Game of Thrones again for fun and enjoyed watching all the extras. I love those history and lores read by each character on the Blu Ray boxsets!

I read two of last week's selections-Henry VIII's Last Love and The Last Bastion of The Living and liked them both. I'm starting The King is Dead and On Duty With The Queen and will continue with that today. I'm trying to get a few done on my Royal Challenge and that has worked nicely over the last week or so. I'm back on track with that. After The King Is Dead I'll be looking at these as my next three reads.
