The Good. The weather on the whole was very good. I planted some vegetables. I read good books, quilted happily, and enjoyed a great game of women’s rugby between England and NZ. Plus I got a few jobs done I’ve been meaning to do for ages.
The Bad. Despite having had the outside sprayed for ants, they have been appearing in the kitchen in the evening.
The Ugly. Driving into my garage on Friday afternoon I caught the passenger side of my car against the side of garage, took a chunk out of that and scratched two side doors of car. Despair! So annoyed with myself, I just wasn’t concentrating – I’d spaced out. So now Monday I will have to see about getting it fixed and maybe not going the insurance way as my premium will only go up. Yes I have done it once before in same car on a very unforgiving pole in an underground parking area. Worse that time. I think there was a bit of a dent as well and they replaced two parts of the side. Did use Insurance that time! Thousands of dollars for small dents!!
What I read last week:
Other Birds was very good. A little different to her previous books and still delightful and moving. Us Against You was my Slow and Steady read that I happened to finish this week. It was fantastic and maybe my top book for the year! Looking forward to reading the third book, The Winners. The Stolen Book of Evelyn Aubrey will have its own review post.
What I am reading now:
A review book gathering dust on my NetGalley shelf. Because I was not impressed by Mallery’s last book I read I’ve been putting this off!
