Five on Friday | The Little Things

Read | I'm reading 'Bitter Fruits' by Alice Clark-Platts.  It's a bit slow going to start off (I'm a quarter of the way through) - I prefer a fast pace in a crime novel.

Watched | Nothing again!  The living room is still piled high with furniture, music books and instruments while I'm waiting for the work to finish.  I can't even see the TV, let alone watch a programme!

Heard | Sorry, I haven't been listening to anything of note.  During the day the workmen have their radio on but it's just a background noise for me - I haven't really been listening - and in the evenings I've opted for peace and quiet, so haven't had any music on.  

Made | I've been making lots of decision on what stays and what goes. I've been ruthless, and have managed to reduce the kitchen paraphernalia by about two-thirds.  Well I say that, but it hasn't actually gone to the charity shop yet!

Worn | Mostly black and white - it's been a very monochrome sort of week.

And Lastly ... I'm taking a break from the house over the weekend.  On Saturday there is no band practice as we are taking the children busking instead, and then on Sunday I am meeting friends for a photo walk at Coates Water Park - I'm taking my new lens and hoping for some decent shots of the wildlife.  Hope you all have a good weekend with lots of fun things planned.


Thanks to Morgana for organising the Little Things, and to Amy for organising Five on Friday.

  4. With a topsy turvy living room, I'd say getting out for a photo walk is an excellent thing to do. I had to looking up busking; haven't heard that term before.

  8. I'd love to clear about 1/2 the stuff out of my kitchen, but knowing me I'd just buy more.
