Monday 30th May 2011

Like yesterday, today started out fairly slow - to the extent that Sarah was sitting in the lounge reading an Ann McCaffrey book and, well, not doing much else, for a good chunk of the morning.

However, as the day wore on, I started getting a bit more active, doing the washing up and tidying up and actually making a fair bit of progress in making the kitchen start to look a bit more impressive. Still a long way to go, though...

In the evening, Sarah and I had decided to go out for a meal, and so I drove us out to the Toby Carvery where we had a pleasant meal (predictably, I had turkey, potatoes and peas, with lashings of gravy). On the negative side, it was chucking down with rain. On the positive side, one of the other things I'd done, as wellas tidying and washing, was to get the work on the sound files for Now that's what I call music 6 sorted out and disc two burned to a CD-R, so I was able to listen to that in the car. I'm very happy with it. At some point, I hope to start work on Now! 7, but that's not a priority.

Back home, I did more tidying and washing, as well as a bit of reading (making good progress with entorien's Crux, but once I've finished that I'm probably going to read a few other books before starting on the final one in the trilogy). Oh, and also got some clothes washed.

By about 9:00pm I started to wind down, but after Sarah had gone to bed, I did a bit of channel flicking, caught the end of The Judas Tree (last year's Jonathan Creek episode, guest starring Paul McGann; what a lovely voice that man's got), set the Sky+ box to record a couple of films (Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, on the basis that I enjoyed the first one, and Groundhog Day on the basis that I've been wishing I had a copy of it for ages, so this is as good an opportunity as any), and then watched the first part of the documentary about Queen, Days of our lives, which was a good way to end the day.

For the time being, Sarah and I are sleeping separately, as her back's giving her problems and the main bed is a bit too small for the both of us. So I've got the spare bed, and am sleeping with the window open as the weather's so warm. It's very comfortable.
