The Months in Points

  • We moved to another country. If you’ve not been around these parts for long, Chris moved to Denmark this time last year then because of Covid restrctions and other things, Rex and I properly joined Jaxon and Chris in Denmark at the beginning of this month.
  • I’ve been sharing over on Instagram my adventures around the city and what we’ve been up to. I’ve joined a writing group and a couple of knitting group so hopefully going to settle into them well. I missed the meetup of the writing group this weekend and got a message from one of my new friends making sure I was okay and telling me I was missed from the group which was really sweet.
  • We’ve started to settle in at a new church. It’s a little challenging with so much of the service being in Danish but there is a translation system which is handy. Rex loves playing in the kids area there.


I tinkered with some little projects but the big one I’ve been working on has been the Shawlography MKAL from West Knits. I love the introduction video and how it was a contemporary dance piece. (You can see it here). I had tried to purchase my yarn before leaving the UK but it didn’t quite work out.


  • Daughters of Cornwall by Fern Britton
  • There’s Something About Scarlett by Hannah Ellis
  • Fragile Hearts by the Loch by Hannah Ellis
  • In A Manhatten Minute by Helen J Rolfe
  • A Summer of Surprises by Rosie Green
  • The Wedding Cake Wish by Rosie Green
  • Escape to the Hummingbird Hotel by Daisy James

You can find all the books I’ve read on my Goodreads account here. (My TBR list is 198 books long – it might be time to work on that along with the 29 currently reading ones! In other news I’ve read 29 books out of 40 in 2021).


  • Private Practice – I’m sure I must have watched it before when it was on as I’m a huge Shondaland fan but it’s currently available on Disney+ here in Denmark so I’ve been working my way through it.
  • Suits – Chris was already watching this so I’ve joined in, I’ve missed a chunk in the middle so I’m watching Season 2 or 3 when I can then watching Season 8 or 9 in the evenings with him. If I don’t understand a bit I go google it to fill in the gaps lol.
