Celebrate the Small Things

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop now hosted by Lexa Cain. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week, no matter how small.

This week I'm celebrating:

- Finally getting some writing done for the A to Z - cutting it a bit close! 

- I went to see Insurgent at the cinema on Tuesday, and I thought it was great - better than I thought it would be. I've also watched both The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Mockingjay with my mum this week, since the latter was recently released on DVD. Catching Fire is my favourite, but I do love the rebel scene in Mockingjay.

- After a difficult week at work I have the whole weekend off to recover, which I'm very much looking forward to. 


  1. My daughter's been trying to convince me to see Insurgent with her, but I wasn't sure. I didn't find the book as good as Divergent, so that makes me hesitant. Yay to getting A-Z somewhat done - that's a ton or work!

  2. Way to go with A to Z and surviving a difficult work week!
    I really liked Insurgent, as well. Interestingly, my youngest daughter was irritated that it didn't follow the book more closely but still thought it was a great movie. We had some great discussions about books, movies, and character development afterwards so it was a high scoring movie for us on all accounts (maybe I could even count it for our home-school hours - just kidding - my kids study over the amount of hours they need to for any state requirements).

    I hope you had a good and restful weekend!

  3. Get it done - Challenge starts in five days!

  4. I want to see Insurgent; I really enjoyed Divergent and the Hunger Game movies so far.


  5. That reminds me, I still need to write for A to Z.

  6. Congrats on making progress on the A-Z posts. I haven't seen any of those movies yet, but I'm hoping to. I hope you enjoy a very relaxing weekend!

  7. Well done getting stuck into the A to Z Challenge. I agree, it's tricky to get them done before the challenge starts. Good luck with it.

  8. It sounds like you needed to recover from all your movie watching.

  9. Congrats on your celebrations! I couldn't come up with anything this year for my A to Z posts so I didn't participate. It makes me sad. But if you're interested you can see them on my blog under Finding the Positives. They are just images so a quickie, really. :)
    Glad to hear you liked Insurgent. I am weary after Divergent disappointed me. Seemed like I was not at all as invested in the movie characters as I was in the book characters. And I agree, Catching Fire was my favorite of the book series. The movie fell flat for me again. I hope Mocking Jay will come back. :)
    Hope you got some much needed rest.
