It was manicure day today and as I didn’t get home until late afternoon and like to be extra careful for a couple of hours (at least), Husband was in charge of dinner. He decided on bruschetta with tomatoes, onions, chilli and garlic topped with Parmesan; my absolute favourite meal. Nails were painted in OPI Tomorrow never dies, a discontinued colour from the old James Bond collection. It’s a deep purplish blue, not quite Cadbury purple. I don’t wear it all that often but when I do someone always comments on what a lovely rich shade it is.
Talking of Cadburys…..the view from my desk at work shows a car park to my left and a few picnic tables on a grassy rise. I often see the squirrels scratching around for some post-lunch crumbs, but if I turn to my right this is what I now see:
You might not be able to work out what’s in those boxes at the side of the cupboard so I’ll tell you – boxes of Cadbury Easter eggs. A lot of Easter eggs. One hundred Easter eggs. And I’m a chocoholic. Goodness, the next four weeks are going to be HARD! I’m not quite sure how the distribution of Easter eggs to staff fell into the remit of HR but I sometimes think an HR manager’s role is to take on everything that doesn’t quite fit anywhere else!
I’ve now finished work for the week and have a busy day lined up for tomorrow – hair, gym and coffee with girlfriends, then lunch out with Husband and other friends. I’ll probably have a lazy late afternoon and evening watching some TV programmes that I’ve not had time to watch in the week. Did any of my UK readers watch Cheat last week. Anything with Katharine Kelly in is generally worth watching . I enjoyed it very much although there were a couple of unanswered questions and we never did find out whether Rose cheated or not! Whenever I make comments like this to my brother, who has spent a lot of time on TV sets, he just says, “It’s not real, it’s television.”
We’ve also been watching Motherfatherson, Richard Gere’s first TV serial. Although watchable, I’d hoped for better from a big-name movie star. I find him wooden in the role and the reviews haven’t been great either. Pretty Woman, it ain’t! A new drama The Bay started last night. I’ve not watched this yet but it stars one of my favourite TV actresses, Morven Christie who played female lead in the marvellous A Word. I’m glad to read that a third series is being filmed. One more television reference – Line of duty is back very soon. The last couple of series have been excellent so I’m looking forward to it. After a dearth of good drama this past few months, it’s great to have some interesting ones coming into Spring!
I need to make an effort over the weekend to catch up on some home admin. Bills to pay, letters to write, cards to make and a cake to bake. I wonder what this week’s flavour will be.
