Sunday Salon … January 31st 2011

Hi to everyone, from a sunny, yet bitterly cold Somerset.

I had hoped to have something of a quieter, more relaxing day today, but by the time I get to finish all my ‘Domestic Goddess’ duties, I think that will be a vain hope.

Especially as I took some time out this morning, to watch poor Andy Murray get out-played and out-classed by Novak Djokovic, in the Australian Open Tennis Championships

This week has been as eventful and worth a mention, as most weeks are  mundane and ordinary.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday were spent in my volunteer capacity at my local Hospice Shop. I carry out a full range of backstage and front of house duties, but generally concentrate on selecting, pricing and displaying books, games, toys and most other accessory items. We have received some fantastic donations of books and toys this week, but can always accept more of just about anything.

Tuesday we went with my brother and sister-in-law to London, where we were treated to a visit to The Apollo Theatre, in Victoria, for the evening performance of the smash hit musical ‘Wicked’. A full account of  my great day, can be found here.

We have also fixed up with my brother and sister-in-law, for the four of us to have a four day mid-week break, in Tenby, Wales, in May. We have got a great deal on a fantastic apartment that we have rented before, overlooking the sea and are busy planning our itinerary to incorporate any local National Trust properties and coastline walks, plus any other things that we did not get to appreciate fully on our previous visit.

We have a busy time ahead in May, as to co-incide with four family birthadys in that month, we yesterday also booked a weekend away in London for seven of us, in conjunction with a Saturday matinee performance of Les Miserables, at The Queen’s Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue. Now we just have to decide where to book for our birthday meal on Saturday night and what we would like to do on Sunday, before returning home.

I manged to get a couple of posts up, but am getting way behind on my reviews and thoughts articles. I shall be working on them later however, and hope to post my thoughts about ‘A Dead Man’s Debt’ by Grace Elliot, tomorrow, or Tuesday.

Finally, I would quite like some time to relax and read a little of my great latest read, which is a very moving family saga of war and romance:

‘Remembrance Day’ by Leah Fleming

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
