It was so nice to have some good weather so that I could relax in the garden and enjoy my swing seat that I spent a lot of time out there reading. I finished 2 Ellis Peters', a Dick Francis and a Jim Butcher - quite unlike my recent reading habits! I'm now part way through Earthly Joys, another Phillipa Gregory book, about John Tradescant, which is pretty good although I'm not enjoying it as much as her first person narrative ones.
Socializing was achieved by going to see Space Heros of the People on Saturday and having Ian & Ruth over for dinner on Monday. SHotP were really good - I enjoyed this one much more than I did the Port Mahon gig last week. Better sound balance, I think, and more energy on my behalf. Also, the support were pretty nifty, which was nice. I cooked like crazy for dinner on Monday - tandoori chicken, saag aloo, naan breads and cumin shortbread for dessert! I was really rather pleased with myself, I have to say. We got Settlers out, which I haven't played for ages and really enjoyed and Ian & Ruth had bought Thurn und Taxis which was also pretty good fun. Must play more games.
And now back to work. Sigh. At least it's a four day week :)
