Long long weekends
This could have been one of those weekends where stresses piled up and overwhelmed the break. It almost was. Then the sun came out today. Brunch, friends, reading on the beach and a swim in the sea. Swimming in the ocean can make many a trouble fade away.
I finally parted company with the addictive The Hunger Games and re-read Maeve Binchy's Copper Beech for the first time in years as a perfect antidote, like pulling on an old jumper. Have also been reading One Day, in good ol'fashioned book form, much-recommended by so many people. I can't say I'm really fussed with it so far...a huge sweeping non-statement I know, but it's just a bit meh, well-written but I don't much like the characters in the way I think I'm supposed to. Perhaps it will grow on me.
