Playing Hooky

Pssst! Want to know a secret? I have taken an hours leave, so I am skipping home at 3.30 today (I started early this morning so I get to go home a bit earlier than my usual 5:00 finish). I have great plans! I am going to retire to bed with a cup of tea and some hot buttery toast, my pile of Christmas magazines, my pumpkin tea cosie knitting (am I the slowest knitter in the world?!) and listen to ‘I Capture The Castle’ on tape.

I am also going to ponder and muse on a post I have been brewing for a few days, mulling over after I read a lovely post at which talked about friends as family. Isn’t that a lovely thought? Not in a schmaltzy friends-are-the-family-you-pick-yourself way, but more in an isn’t it great to have fab friends way. I am pondering upon some ideas for little ways to nurture friendships….

Then I am going to get up and go to bookclub and discuss ‘My Sister’s Keeper’ before coming home for an early night before and adventure to London tomorrow. I am going with a dear friend, and we are going to the largest Waterstones in Europe, Boarders for American magazines, Selfridges for bright red M.A.C. lipstick, and somewhere nice for hot chocolate. Then Saturday night we are going to another dear friend’s house for Shepherds pie and mulled wine after a firework display. Sunday I am off to Horsham for my God-son’s birthday party. Phew!

I hope that you all have a scrumptious weekend too!

  1. I must say that book is one of my favorites! I found a first edition of it in a thrift store once, was charmed by the cover and loved it very much. Have you read it before or is this your first time through?
