This Week: Monday 26th January

The weather ... supposed to be a bit warmer today after a wintry couple of weeks.

I am reading ... still The Innovators by Walter Isaacson. Enjoying it but still only half way through.

I am watching ... enjoyed watching The Importance of Being Ernest on Netflix. A 2002 (or thereabouts) version with Colin Firth, Rupert Everest and Judi Dench. 

I am listening ... to How The Girl Guides Won The War on Audible (non-fiction) and still listening to Sibelius.

This week's goals ...
Drink more water (again)
Read for 1/2 hour every day (again)
Sort out baking trays and cake tins, also box of pasta, rice etc. which is rather a mess

How I did last week ...
Badly! Although I did manage to read most days.

Coming up this week ...
A speeding ticket :(. M had a letter on Saturday saying our car had been caught averaging more than 50mph through a section of roadworks on the M1 motorway. I was the culprit. 
A pub quiz night with friends from work.
A meal at Pizza Express with a friend. 
Seth Lakeman in concert at The Stables, Milton Keynes next week (folk / rock / fiddle).
(At least I have nice stuff to look forward to to outweigh the speeding ticket!

Highlights of last week ....
The internet is fixed!!!!
Our broken car wing mirror and senior daughter's broken windscreen wipers are also fixed.
(The shower on / off switch is, unfortunately, not fixed, and we have to rush round to the airing cupboard after a shower to turn it off at the plug).
An orchestral workshop day yesterday.

Sorry to hear about the speeding ticket. Hope the nice bits this week make up for it. Thanks for the book title and recommendation, sounds like one for Wookie.
