It's depressing, that's what it is. The weather. It's grey, cold and there's endless rain. It doesn't help that we have a leak in our conservatory. It's not the biggest problem because it's technically an outside area, where the washing machine lives along with the bikes and the lawn mower, but it's water and it's inside and I don't like it because water always brings the dreaded black mould. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.
It was my girlfriend's birthday this week and we went to the science museum to look at the Tim Peake's Soyuz capsule. Which according to her was used to travel to and from the ISS. No clue why anyone would cram themselves into such a tiny space only to get shot into actual space where it's dark and scary.
We also had a mini spa day. Possibly the three most uncomfortable hours I've spent in 2017 so far (I think I'd prefer the Soyuz capsule). I'm always too hot, always sweating, and I find it uncomfortable and do not appreciate being placed into a sauna.
On my blog this week: A review of Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. And a Top Ten Tuesday post talking about the characters I wish we'd seen more of in books.
In my kitchen this week: A roast chicken stuffed with lemon, sage and garlic. A marble cake, which sadly turned out a bit dry. A hot dish with chicken legs placed in a honey, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice marinade into which I chopped chillies. And a stew with parmesan dumplings. Trust me, if you like dumplings, add some parmesan into the flour, it's gorgeous.
Cinema: Hacksaw Ridge. A bit too much violence for my taste, but if you like your war movie to look authentic and realistic, that's the one.
Books: I've finished Andre Agassi's Open and hope to review it next week. Almost done with Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas. Still got The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt going and am trying to finish Lolita this weekend.
I wish everyone a great next week. Do your best.
