… one afternoon, just enough time for Juliette to run and jump on the patch of grass we call garden.
Leggy long leg Juliette :)
Actually, not so ordinary week…
Tuesday, family outing to the US Embassy for our visa interview, then drove Victor back to school and came back to welcome my parents.
Wednesday and Thursday were spent cleaning our house to be ready for our new tenants.
Friday, prepared lunch and shared it with my friends, had a nice chat and a good laugh… then drove to Alice’s school, had grand-daughter/daughter/grand-parents dinner.
Saturday, another nice evening with some friends…
And Sunday, it was Juliette’s communion…
followed by a walk in the country side.
Now we are just one week away from the move… time to get organised… cross some boxes on my ToDo lists…
When do you read?
In my case, always, always a few lines, paragraphs, chapters… before falling asleep. Even if I go to bed really late, it helps me to wind down.
I also read during the day, like this morning with a cup of coffee before starting my house chores. From time to time, I indulge in stolen moments, lying on my bed during the day with a bit of sunshine. Reading in the tube, in a plan, in the car (not while driving!)…
Here is what I’m reading at the moment:
Kate Atkinson, Behind the Scenes at the Museum, on Alice’s recommendation. Although she didn’t had to work hard to convince me. It’s from the same author as Case Histories (Jackson Brodie!). What I like about this book is the tone, sometimes a young girl speaking, sometimes an adult voice. It’s a family story from the great-grand mother to Ruby, the young speaker.
Another cooking book, gift from my friend.
I have not experimented with any of the recipes yet and I will probably have to wait until we are settled at our new destination. In the mean time, I’m enjoying the DVD that comes with the book.
Another week of grey, gloomy weather.
I don’t think I’m too affected by this… but I don’t get it, it’s almost summer and we still did not get an entire day of nice warm weather, so any opportunity to up our vitamin D flowing is good!
