We are at the end of the first week of our holiday and we have had the usual mix of good and bad weather, days out and restful downtime. I was determined that this year I would make time to catch up on some reading. I'm always buying books that I don't get round to and my unread pile has reached epic proportions. So I selected seven books to take away with me in the hope of reading a couple by the end of the two weeks.
The Analogue Painting Challenge has meant that the last few months have been very busy and painting focused. This isn't a bad thing, but it did squeeze out time for more leisurely pursuits like reading. Combine that with the fact that my job has been more than a little stressful lately and you have a recipe for a guy that really REALLY needs a holiday. The wife has also had a very busy month and between us all we want to do is flake out and rest...saying that we have still managed to fit in several local museums, shopping and exploration of local towns and lots of swimming and other fun stuff with the Padawan.
Roll on week two!
