Fiona Walker bonk buster called French Relations. I've nearly finished all 794 pages.
There's nothing like curling up with a book that is easy to read and highly entertaining at the same time. It's one I have read loads of times but I like the characters and the story, they are familiar and safe. Perfect for a tired, stressed out Mum, living in the depths of the chill winter countryside.
I feel relaxed and almost eager to get going again. Ready to take on all sorts including the cleaning, shopping, cooking and general stuff required before this weekend.
Do you know the best part about today? I wasn't expecting it so it came as a heavenly surprise. I do believe that my husband listened to me and realised that I needed a break. Or more importantly he knew he had to get me on side, for tomorrow my in-laws arrive!
Whatever the reason it was wonderful.
