This weekly report is mainly brought to you with pictures from beautiful Dorset. I headed to Bournemouth this weekend for a mini holiday with some of my favourite people, plenty of food and lots of games.
Watching The Bake Off and Educating Yorkshire a year on.
Listening to All of my wonderful friends’ Desert Island Discs. It’s the best game – play it with your pals! The whole family caught up with The Archers yesterday – lots of yucking and screaming ensued.
Reading The Hundred-Year-Old Man who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared. Read it, it’s excellent (I’ll probably write up a more detailed report on this if you’re not convinced!).
Writing Lots of notes from lengthy, tea-fuelled, creative meetings. A few extra short stories – I’m coming to the point where these might be ready to be put into a little collection.
Eating So much food! Last week was mostly spent using up ingredients ahead of leaving for a week off. Then I headed to Bournemouth where we picnicked, cooked a Nom of the Seas feast, had the best breakfasts and whipped up an amazing roast. It was a weekend of love and deliciousness; you can’t really ask for more out of a bank holiday.
