A picture of the week


This was the first week back after my holidays, boo! I think two weeks is the perfect amount of time off though. I really do feel like I got a chance to switch off and this past week I have still felt relatively relaxed and destressed. Any shorter and I would have still been thinking about work the whole time, but any longer and I probably would have run out of things to do with myself all day! 

I am home alone this week (well, with the kitties of course!) while James is off rehearsing for a play in Oxford so it's quite strange making meals for just me for the first time in a long time. I suddenly get to order everything I want from Sainsburies, which has ended up being a lot of raspberries and mangoes, and a lot of cake...

He's in Twelfth Night playing Sebastian, and keeps complaining because he's been cast in a role he doesn't usually play - the romantic lead. I keep getting 'but Harriet, I have to be all flirtatious and suave, I am no good at that' - I have pointed out he is welcome to practise on me if he's really struggling to get into character - but thus far he apparently hasn't felt that desperate!

Raspberries, mangoes and cake sound like an ideal grocery list to me!
Also, how exciting that he is playing Sebastian! Twelfth Night is my favorite Shakespeare play - Viola is my dream role.

Aw haha! Good luck to James!

Aww, I'm sure he'll do you both proud!
I think two weeks off sounds like absolute bliss, but certainly isn't going to happen anytime soon.

Raspberries and mango are the best kind of shopping! Hope James' play goes well :)
