I trotted off to bed early last night and got a good 9 hours sleep. It doesn’t quite make up for the complete lack of sleep on Thursday night but it’s a start.
I had to work this morning – I also teach for the Open University and so taught a few sessions on a pre-exam study day but was home by mid afternoon. We popped in to town and I did a bit more book shopping from the charity book shop:
An Anthony Trollope that I haven’t read. The Delafield I have read extracts of and heard on the radio but never actually read all the way through so I will enjoy that. I read the first Edward Marston Railway Detective novel last week and really enjoyed it so picked up a few more from that series. And, another Gladys Mitchell – one I have read before but a library copy so I am pleased to have my own copy. I am also working on an academic paper on Mitchell so I can justify buying it for work purposes. Do I need to justify it?
Menu plan for the week:
Saturday: homemade burgers, potato wedges and salad
Sunday: Homemade chicken pie (from the freezer) mash, veg and gravy
Monday: Tuna, pasta salad
Tuesday: Chilli and rice
Wednesday: Jacket potatoes, with cheese and bacon, salad
Thursday: Soup (chicken) and bread, both homemade
Friday: Homemade fish and chips
Hope you have all had a good Saturday and enjoyed the lovely sunshine (if you have had some)
