:: I am sitting in the kitchen sipping white wine while watching other people cook my dinner. This is, as you can imagine, rather rare, so I am enjoying it very much. My husband is hosting a young student at work, and he is head chef. Hubby is acting in the role of sous chef and bottle washer. We are having homemade pasties. Yum. The wine is very nice. It is called Upside Down Sauvignon Blanc from Malborough in New Zealand, in case you wondered.
:: Tomorrow my beloved and I are going to see The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel at our local cinema.
It is a fundraiser for the Rotary Club, and includes dinner first and supper afterwards, so I don't need to prepare meals then, either. Perhaps I will forget how to cook. Hah! Have you seen this film? Is it good?
:: This weekend we are going camping to celebrate Jemimah's 13th birthday. We are staying at a remote campsite where you have to pack everything - water, firewood, everything, so it is quite a process, especially since we are hosting four other young teens as well as our own. We're beginning to wonder whether this might have been a bad idea. Anyhow, we're going. Think of us. Mum, can you mind the dog?
:: I have begun a decluttering project with a few friends. It is very liberating to get rid of junk. I'm not planning to do anything too scary here, but it is amazing how much rubbish you accumulate over a decade. Today I cleaned out my bedside drawers and found a couple of booklists that I thought I'd lost forever, so I am rather chuffed about that.
:: We are planning a holiday. We don't have much time, so we're thinking Bali might be nice. We're looking at May. No, we won't be camping.
Are you planning a holiday, too? Where are you looking at going? Are you decluttering with me? Are you having your dinner cooked for you? What's going on in your life this week?
