I have enjoyed reading about everybody’s Bank Holiday (at least in the UK) adventures. Unfortunately, the most exciting thing we did on Bank Holiday Monday was wander on down to the greengrocer to stock up on veg, and we managed to get wet just doing that – so yes, typical Bank Holiday weather up here anyway. We’re so rock’n’roll.
We went for a curry on Sunday night, and so just for my own future reference: spicy vegetable korma / Indian vegetable curry both recommended. Mmmmm. I think the nan breads are getting even bigger.
Today after work I went to my book group, having once again not managed to read the book. Fortunately it is not a scary book group so this was not a problem. I do honestly mean to read the book each time, and usually manage it, but as I am getting busier at work and more stressed the thought of having to get to know a whole new lot of characters and potentially get emotionally involved in a draining story means that I keep putting off starting books until it is too late. I’m a bit like that with films too – unless I’ve seen them already and know I like them, or if it’s one I really really really want to see, I find it difficult to commit to sitting down and watching a film (I think HD finds this a bit frustrating, which is understandable). I still do mean to read the book we’ve just discussed (the others in the group are pretty good at not giving spoilers), as they did rate this as a good one (it’s Irene Nemirovsky’s “Suite Francaise”). Unfortunately we now have to move on, and having pulled a title out of the box that none of us had heard of (I think it might have been suggested ages ago by a member of the group who moved to Dundee a few months ago) it is time for a new start. I have just been on to amazon and read the reviews, let’s just say I have a feeling it might be another “Shadow of the Wind” experience. Fortunately there were lots of 1p copies. I read out one of the reviews to HD and he laughed. We both know I’m going to hate this one. Sigh.
