I am reading … I’ve just started s Simon Kernick thriller whose name escapes me, and I’m sadly too lazy to go all the way downstairs and get it. I do like his books, though, his stories always go at full throttle right from the beginning.
I am watching … Haven’t really been watching a lot of TV for the last week or so – am absolutely madly busy at the moment, what with end of term looming in two weeks and the summer holidays almost upon us, I’m trying to get organized before school is out.
I am looking forward to putting my feet up this evening with a glass of wine and The Apprentice, though.
From the kitchen … Leftovers and whatever I can find in the freezer, mostly, as Ashley is away all week and I’m trying to avoid going to the supermarket!
I am creating … nothing at the moment, but here’s a pic of an anniversary card I made for my brother and sister-in-law a little while back.
I am hoping … that the weather improves soon, as I’m fed up to the back teeth with the rain at the moment. I even had the heating on again on Sunday – ridiculous!
I am planning … to get to the end of my to do list before the week is out.
I am looking forward… to catching up with friends on Sunday evening at our old ‘local’ pub where we used to live, which is putting on a Thai buffet night.
One of my favourite things … the sale of the house we bought to do up and sell a while back finally went through on Monday – making us a very nice profit. I celebrated with a little purchase for my holidays (will show you when it arrives) and some flights to Spain for 10 days in August for us all.
I am proud … of William, who had to go to the hospital for some tests yesterday, including a blood test. The tests were carried out by a Health Care Assistant (what, no nurse? No, they were all drinking tea and chatting in the ward reception, both when we arrived, and again (still?) when we left an hour later) who got the needle into his vein, couldn’t get any blood out and proceeded to wiggle it around for about five minutes trying to make it work, before I called a halt to proceedings and asked for a doctor to do it. The doctor managed to draw blood first time. Bless William, he didn’t make any fuss at all.
A few plans for the rest of the week … Housework, laundry, that enormous To Do list, and hopefully a nice rest at the weekend after a manic week.
