Five on Friday | The Little Things

Read | I'm currently reading 'Early One Morning' by Virginia Baily, chosen by one of the book groups. I've only read the first chapter but am hooked already.

Watched | I've watched the Great British Bake Off and also Extra Slice.  It's the first time I've attempted to watch an entire series of this, but I'm enjoying it so far ..... although the bread-making one was stressful!

Heard | Two hours of sixty year 3 primary school children trying (for the first time) to play brass instruments. Not quite as bad as it sounds as it was ten of them playing instruments with the rest of the children stamping feet, clapping, chanting, etc., and then swapping round so everyone had a go on the instruments. I'm busy doing the presentations in the local schools to attract new members to the youth band.  I have four more presentations to do next week.

Made | I've made plans to go to the coast next week.  I want to see the sea and have a long walk to blow the cobwebs away. It's just a day trip, so fingers crossed that nothing crops up to mess with my plans.

Worn | Mostly red and white .... they were the only clean outfits, but I've caught up with the laundry now so I can ring the changes on my choice of colours!

And Lastly ... we're seeing the comedian Sarah Millican tonight. We bought the tickets over a year ago so have been waiting ages for this .... she'd better be good!


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