The Week: 28th July – 3rd August

Canberra Australia Sunset 9th January 2014 Sonya Heaney Oksna Heaney

A random Canberra sunset picture – taken at our house.

I’ve had a very uninspiring week, punctuated by lots of late nights staying up to watch the Commonwealth Games, and a random illness that made me feel about as awful as I’ve ever felt!

I was really running out of things to read, but on Saturday was rescued by a Georgian-era book recommendation, so now I’m okay again!


As this week ends, all I can think about is the fact Russian soldiers took photos and videos of themselves torturing, murdering and mutilating Ukrainian soldiers, and then posted them on Russian social media. The men they killed were Russian-speaking Ukrainian soldiers. Remember how Russia invaded Ukraine to “protect Russian-speakers”? Remember that pathetic lie?

I accidentally saw those revolting pictures while reading a news site, and now I can – in all honesty – say I feel hatred for Putinists unlike anything I’ve ever felt before.

On the book front?
