A very lovely weekend indeed

In which I:
1. finished GOING BOVINE. You should read this book. Soon.
2. cooked spaghetti and meatballs.
3. tried oysters for the very first time. (Not in the least bit slimey or chewy... who'd have thunk it?! A revelation!)
4. attended a chocolate tasting AND a sparkling wine tasting.
5. ate hog roast (and came up with a stonkingly good idea for a bar/restaurant).
6. drank cocktails.
7. laughed a lot.
8. pushed a car through the snow.
9. traipsed on a gorgeous, snow-encrusted beach.
10. did no work whatsoever (also a revelation!).

Today the nose is firmly back to the grindstone. Currently inputting edits to the mansucript, which would be a speedier task if I hadn't left myself so many things to think about. But I am finding it strangely satisfying getting rid of unnecessary sentences -of which there are many.

What did you get up to? Anything fun?


  1. Christmas shopping. I pretty much finished it. Horray. We put the tree up too and wrapped some presents. It was a nice weekend despite so much shopping.

    Sounds like you are having a great time up there!

  2. You've pretty much finished your shopping? I AM IMPRESSED! Not to mention jealous.

  3. That sounds like a wonderful and adventurous weekend. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  4. What an enviously awesome weekend!

    Going Bovine sounds fantastic. As does cocktails and laughing and snowy beach.

    I've never tried oysters. I already assume I am not a fan :)

  5. Sounds like a seriously awesome weekend. GOING BOVINE is pure hilarity!

  6. The weekend... hmm, I do vaguely remember something of the sort. It feels so long ago. I basically did nothing. It was awesome, but yours sounds EVEN better.

    I want to read Going Bovine. Sounds potentially great.
