Right now, I am mostly…
Eating : All the food in the world ever. Seriously, yesterday, I had a lovely Easter Sunday roast at my niece’s house with my dad, and my sister’s family. We had a quite ridiculous number of roast potatoes, and a friend of ours dropped the above cake around in the morning, saying she baked it because she was bored. It was lemon flavoured, and it was quite divine. I still feel full now, though.
Reading : My reading is all over the place again, but I was quite pleased to receive six new books in the post on Saturday morning! Added to that were the two I got from the library – Burial Rites by Hannah Kent, which I’ve been eager to read for a while, and Six Years by Harlan Coben, which I read about online on Saturday morning, and had a look for on the shelf on the off chance it might be there when I got to the library. I was most surprised when it was; my local library is not the sort of place where that happens an awful lot (it’s only marginally bigger than my living room).
Watching : I watched a film on Netflix last night, Breathe In, for which I’ll write a My Thoughts On… post later this week. I’m still in love with Netflix, but sometimes I feel that there’s too much choice. It’s hard to narrow it down!
Playing : All the best family afternoons end with board games, and we played a couple yesterday, including Frustration. Would you believe, given where my counters are situated in the above photo, that I didn’t win? Abbie beat me, which was ridiculous, but lots of fun.
Feeling : Cold! It’s that really annoying time of year when the weather has started to warm up, so it’s OK to maybe start wearing that light jacket and leaving the coat at home, but the house is no warmer than it was two months ago. It seems the height of ridiculousness to continue having the heating on at the end of April, so I’m suffering, very much not in silence.
Listening : As I am writing this, I am listening to the most narcissistic playlist I have on Spotify. It’s called Jane, and it contains a number of songs that include my name in the title. There’s a particularly awesome live version of Sweet Jane by Lou Reed that I adore.
