Wednesday Wind Up
What am I reading this week?
Still Warleggan, since I'm on a no spend week I'm trying to hold out on it so I don't need to get the next book until May, really.
I read a different book on holiday last week, Dust and Shadow by Lindsay Faye and John Watson. It is a Sherlock Holmes meets the Ripper novel. Very appropriate considering our adventures last week!
What have I watched this week?
The Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes. Eldest son has acquired it as a souvenir of London and we will be working our way through it from beginning to end. That's 42 episodes of Sherlockian enjoyment!
And I also have The Hobbit; Battle of the Five Armies to watch , probably this weekend with a themed tea to accompany it! (bacon and mushrooms, classic hobbit food!) I wonder what other food goes with which films? Ice cream with Grease? Pizza with Goodfellas? I must think about it!
Where have I been this week?
Since Monday, only school. But last week, ah, now last week was bliss. Magnificence.
How has my spending gone this week?
Ahem. We visited Harry Potter world. How do YOU think my spending went this week? Add a bookshop and a Sherlock Holmes museum and, well, I am on a spending fast for the next few weeks. At least.
What are my WIPs this week?
I have a finished WIP; does that cease to be a WIP? What will it be? A Ta Dah or a FO? And I have already started my next blanket project. This one will see me through summer and into the next winter, I think. It starts so simply, with 280 of these;
Made from a variety of these;
Any Other Business?
Only that I am waiting for May 20th to find out if there is a role for me at school next year. I don't think the Attendance Officer role will continue, but I haven't heard if there's another position that I could be able to do. If not, it will be back to supply and living day-to-day and hand-to-mouth. There are pluses and minuses to each.
