I recently started watching Human’s, a parallel present sci-fi series where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ – a highly-developed robotic servant that’s too similar to a real human. Honestly who wouldn’t want something like a Synth to clean up after the kids? The show hooked my by the end of Episode 1 and at the end of 2 I’m dying for more. Fantastic premise and execution on the small screen. Love Colin Morgan as Leo (and in everything) but it took me ages to pinpoint where I knew the mum Laura (Katherine Parkinson) from. She was the reporter Kitty in Sherlock, the Reichenbach Fall episode. Humans a show well worth watching for the lovely shocks it delivers each week!
A book with no name
I also began writing a new book in a new four book regency romance series today. Both series and books are named so far, but I’m off to a great start with the first chapter (hero point of view) written. I’ll keep you posted on the progress.

Tracking My Steps
About two weeks ago I purchased a Fitbit Charge. They say 10,000 steps a day is good and I’ve now, as I suspected, failed to get anywhere near that number on a working day. I got close on laundry day. It’s also not tracking my stair climbs well and pushing a shopping trolley didn’t register at all so I’m wearing it around my ankle (under my sock) to get an accurate count. Good thing its winter so no one sees it beneath my jeans. As we say in publishing, this is a marathon not a sprint, so I’m making small changes in my day to move more. I set five reminder alarms to help me get up and moving. I’ll probably need to restart a walking routine but I do wish it were warmer in the mornings.
Upcoming Movie Must See
The Martian. Just caught the trailer via Facebook. It is OMG awesome and then there’s Matt Damon in it too. Can’t wait until October. I feel a movie date coming on…
Have a great weekend!
