So after a fairly stressful week at work, The Book Accumulator and Mini-Me came to spend 24 hours with me, which was just the tonic I needed.
We went to an open day to look at a school for Mini-Me, who will be attending Sixth Form (the last two years of school) at boarding school in the UK, hopefully not too far away for me to rock up in my car on weekends and rescue her regularly! The school we looked at was pretty amazing, so it was a very successful day.
Mini-Me took my copy of Mockingjay with her, which is only fair because The Physicist has pinched the copy that she lent to me. Which means I need him to come home so that I can write my review of the final volume of the Hunger Games!
I’ve spent Sunday in the office catching up/getting ahead on a load of work, and of course I have done different work from the work I should have done, but at least I have got loads done (thanks in no small part to the Pomodoro Technique and KanbanFlow, my new favourite productivity tool) and I bought myself some new headphones as a reward.
I seem to have hit a spate of atrocious review e-copies sent to me; all very dark and violent and expletive-ridden and really quite foul. The delete button looms large.
Here’s to a more restful week than last week!
