Listening: to Radio 3. Again. And the rain. Again.
Reading: I’ve just finished ‘Death and the Maiden’ by Gladys Mitchell. I bought it because it’s set in Winchester in the post war period: it has quite detailed descriptions of the city, which I found interesting. However the story is quite odd and, in the end, unsatisfying.
Watching: Lucy Worsley’s ‘History’s Biggest Fibs’. We judge documentaries on whether we learn something new, and Ms Worsley seldom fails. Whether we remember what we’ve learned is a different matter, but that’s not her fault.
Making: I’m feeling more inspired by ‘1 year of stitches’ than by my knitting at the moment, so I’m cracking on with the former. The more I add, the more I like them. I’m still knitting, but it’s a pair of using-up-leftovers slipper socks, rather than an SKO. Well, they are SKO’s, but not in the artistic sense.
Feeling: tired, after this week’s couple of sleepovers. The kids were great, but I don’t have the energy I used to have. Still, we had a very enjoyable morning at the ‘little trains’, despite the rain.
Anticipating: a more relaxed week next week.
