It's been a bit of a slow week here. Since visiting the dentist on Tuesday for my last session off treatment, I came down with a cold and haven't been feeling so great. As a consequence, the spring cleaning got put on hold for the week. It was all I could do to just keep on top of the washing, ironing, dog walking and other day to day domestic tasks.
All I've managed this week, aside from the above tasks, is to send off a birthday gift and some cards and sit and do a bit of patchwork each night, so at least that is coming along nicely and I've hopefully not offended anyone by forgetting their birthday.
I have also managed to blag some more free Ideal Home Show tickets for the March show at Olympia here in London, and find us some decent and well priced holiday accommodation in Tenerife over Easter.
We are staying with OH's sister and her husband for a week, mainly so OH can do some serious cycling training before an event he is taking part in, in France in April, but also for a much needed spring break in the sunshine.
Saturday night, LB was staying over at a friend's house for a Birthday sleepover, but as I was still not feeling 100%, we decided not to have a grown up night out and instead had a quiet night at home, watching several back to back episodes of The Killing on DVD. I've got over my initial unease with regard to this programme and am now quite enjoying the first series. With the wind raging outside, it was definitely a good decision.
I'm hoping that in the coming week I'll start feeling a lot better and I will resume being a bit more productive.
