My Week in Pictures

A new pair of hand knitted socks

Miserable weather (these were large, wet snowflakes on the car windscreen) not rain

Celebrating an 18th birthday with a newly fledged adult

Feedback in a maths book. "No eating! More focus" Um. Yes.

Working on Latin, with some lighter moments!

A Little Bit of London

A few pictures from a trip to London with Rose at half term. The plan was to go to the Natural History and Science Museums, and to see Big Ben and the London Eye. The queue just to get into the Natural History Museum was crazy so we skipped that. The Science Museum was also very busy which was overwhelming for my sensitive small person, so we didn't stay long. After we had exhausted the quieter bits of the museum we went sight seeing.

The weather ... Just the tiniest hint of spring in the air.

I am wearing ... Jeans, long sleeved navy t-shirt, long blue hand knitted sweater, white furry slipper boots

I am reading ... The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey. Stalled.

I am creating ... A pair of blue lacy socks. Just the toe of the second sock to go.

I am listening ... To a cello concerto by Russian composer Miaskovsky.

I am watching ... Not much other than Call the Midwife on Sunday evenings

I am enjoying ... Lighter evenings. It is so nice not to have to drive home from work in the dark.

From the learning rooms ... Rose was pupil of the week for her class last week, which made her very happy. I have just started a short module on reading Latin documents for my archivist's course. I've realised that my Latin is better than I thought it was, which is a nice position to be in! It means the course won't be as time consuming as I expected.

On the menu ...
Monday: beef stir fry
Tuesday: fish and chips
Wednesday: chicken breasts (bought ready marinated) with green veggies and some sort of potatoes
Thursday: maybe vegetarian cottage pie?
Friday: probably salmon
Saturday: baked potatoes and chilli at a band quiz night. I have been delegated to cook a batch of the potatoes
Sunday: roast chicken

On the calendar ... Mostly the usual routine. Helen has a week's holiday from her shop job, and Tevye and I are going to the quiz night on Saturday.
