This Week: 5th August 2013

The weather ... Wet and miserable today, which is a shame as I was not working and had planned to take Rose to the zoo. We went swimming instead.

I am wearing ... Dark pink trousers, sleeveless navy top, navy cardigan.

I am reading ... Not much. I have downloaded a few Kindle books intending to read them. Dos that count?

I am creating ... Coursework assignments. I spent a long day on Saturday writing an essay which is one of two final assignments for the final module of my archive course. The end really is in sight!

I am listening ... Usually I fix on classical for a while or rock / pop for a while. At the moment I'm mixing it up and listening to a very random mix of music.

I am watching watched ... Now You See Me at the cinema with Tevye last week. We both enjoyed it, as did Helen when she saw it the week before. A kind of magical / sleight of hand thriller. Not the most believable plot, but very watchable.

I am enjoying ... Having extra time at home over the summer, thanks to a mix of taking odd days of my holiday allowance and flexi days (days off in lieu of extra hours worked)

From the learning rooms ... Records management, records management, and more records management - but only for another two and a half weeks and then I'm DONE!

On the menu ... Menu planning in the holidays just doesn't work. I don't think I stuck to last week's plan for more than a day or two. Everything is out of routine and I never know much in advance how many people I need to feed.

On the calendar ...
Monday: day off work. Took Rose swimming. Marie is spending Monday to Friday this week babysitting for a friend. Well, not babies exactly - 11 and 8 year olds. Teenagers can be very useful!
Tuesday: back to work for me. Dental appointment for Tevye. Rose has a friend coming to play in the afternoon.
Wednesday: helping to run an archive related activity day at the library, band orCtice.
Thursday: going to look round a newly refurbished museum. This is work. Did I mention I love my job? Tevye has a routine hospital appointment.
Friday: nothing out of the ordinary
Saturday: more work on the wretched records management.
Sunday: playing a "Proms in the Park" concert with the band in the evening. Should be fun. Tevye and Rose are coming to listen and we will take a picnic (so long ad the weather is ok!)

A picture from last week ... Today's healthy lunch. Wholemeal bagel with eggs microwaved in a mug (easiest eggs ever!), mushrooms, sliced tomatoes and baby spinach

Going to museums as work sounds good to me :) Looking forward to hearing that the long Saturdays are over and the course is finished.

Maybe we can arrange a celebratory lunch once you are done?

I'm with you on the menu planning. I rarely stick to it.
