An ever so slightly belated weekly report, but it’s been a very good week! I returned home from Bournemouth to spend time with my family, and then to Fieldview (which you can see above). It was a beautiful week with family and incredible friends who might as well be family. It was a rather wonderful place to see summer drifting away.
Watching Bake Off of course. I’ve rekindled my love of Green Wing, which is providing endless entertainment. I haven’t made it to watching Doctor Who yet, but it’s on the list.
Listening to The Archers (such drama), everyone’s Desert Island Discs, the wonderful tunes at Fieldview this weekend, lots of Electric Swing Circus and a smidgen of Pixies.
Reading I finished The Hundred-Year-Old Man who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared and we discussed it at book club which was just fabulous. All books should be discussed over soup and tiffin making. I’ve started The Secret History by Donna Tartt, which I’ve had on my Kindle forever with the intention of reading but not got around to.
Writing More short stories. I can’t seem to stop the words. Endless lists. I realised this week that I hadn’t ordered a new Acad-Pad and it is September already, but one is on its way to me as I speak!
Eating Some excellent hometime meals, a 2-in-1 pie, Olivia’s incredible pad thai, a dreamy lunch after hours on the train, zingy grapefruits, a halloumi and orange salad, lots of blackberries, some of them baked into a crumble cake, the best mid-festival burger of my life and a fairly excessive amount of chocolate treats.
Talking about Smooches, scavenger hunts, trains, additional pylons, inappropriate games, life admin, when it’s time to be a grown up, the start of term and first days at school, pensions, parties, Christmas, superhero powers, coffee, sewing skills, how my chillies turned red!
