Here's how things ended up last week.
Cooking - My friends came to dinner on Saturday evening, I cooked a salmon dish, the starter and pudding were both courtesy of the Tesco Finest range in the end. I was just too unwell yesterday to make everything myself. We had a pleasant evening, and I don't think my friends were too bothered that I hadn't slaved over a hot stove on their behalf.
Cake - I tried Lemon cake this week in my quest to be more adventurous. However, I lapsed and found myself returning to scoffing scones with jam and cream before too long. It was a good week for cake!
Yoga - Maybe I need a change, all I know is I didn't enjoy my yoga session very much. It was hard work, and I really wasn't motivated. I'm not sure what to do. Should I take a break? Or find a new class?
Writing - I re-wrote the chapter, and had it critiqued. It needs more work. Blog posts were written, but the assignment for my critique group didn't materialise due to feeling unwell.
Walking - Managed my three sessions.
I also played around with some of the images I've captured over the last few weeks, including the one for this post.
The week ahead then.
Writing - I'll be writing three monologues for a new project over the next few weeks, so I need to think about content. I'll also write another chapter of my novel.
Reading - Hoping to make a return to novels this week in a bid to relax, and lose myself in a good story. Any recommendations?
Relaxation - Big effort required here. I have ideas. A few hours at the spa, relaxing in the jacuzzi would be wonderful, or a long walk, or just some decent sleep!
What plans have you got for the week ahead? Remember - Its a dream until you write it down, and then its a goal.
