Wednesday Wind Up: How a little of what you fancy goes a long, long way.
On to Wednesday Wind Up. I've had a bit of a slow wake up this week, I think I either have a water infection or a cold, I find it so hard to get out of bed and into work. Or perhaps the sunny mornings just make me wish occasionally I was still a SAHM. Oh, the things I could do with a few days at home now! Never mind, that's not my season. I work 9 to 4 most days, so that's what I do.
The Woman in White. It's the BBC Sunday Evening drama at the moment. I remember very well the 1982 dramatisation, with Alan Badel and Ian Richardson in, so I think sadly I keep running comparisons between. It also doesn't help that Tywin Lannister is playing an invalid uncle and I just can't see him as that. His voice is too alive.
It is, however, my daughter's first time watching the story, and so far, so good. She does love a good romance and a good mystery, so finding this has both is a win/win for her.
I also finally got around to watching This Beautiful Fantastic on Amazon. Somebody on The Hygge Nook recommended it way back before Christmas and I couldn't find it then for hire or purchase. It's a lovely movie, about a librarian and a garden, about love and redemption and death, about being brave and facing fears. It has a good cast, with Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Wilkinson, Andrew Scott and Jeremy Irvine. Can I say it's like an English Amelie? That same quirkiness, the same romance that might or might not be? The same gallery of misfits finding friendship together? I loved it, and I am going to watch it again soon. Possibly this afternoon, if work goes quiet. Don't tell the Boss.
Better than last week, although any spare cash this weekend got spent on teak oil, compost and red geraniums for the front garden. I still need red geraniums and blue lobelias for the back garden, but I need to visit my Mum to get to the cheapest and best garden centre in the district.
My big expense this week will be paying my WI subs, four months late! I am lucky the President has been so patient. Never mind, I have the cash in my purse and I'm going tonight, so that will be gone by tomorrow.
Oh, I almost forgot! My niece has broken her leg, in two separate places. On her birthday last Monday, of all days! She has a baby girl coming up to one, so she's moved back in with her parents who will be looking after her for a while. At the moment it's still unclear whether she'll need her leg pinning or operating on, so all my plans may be for naught if help is needed and I can get to look after a baby!
