Apologies for the lack of blogging action this week; I've been re-doing my First Aid at Work qualification, which has been remarkably tiring, and I've been catching up with work when I got home in the evenings. I had various things I wanted to blog about this week, but they haven't happened - I wrote a post about some wonderful soup that I made, but it all got eaten before I photographed it (so will have to have another make of it tomorrow!), and I had some books that I wanted to tell you about. Oh well, as our First Aid trainer kept saying, "You can't do what you can't do". I quite liked that phrase. I passed the assessment with flying colours, which was good, especially since I've done the course before, and had just lost my certificate... We celebrated with a trip to Argos to spend 4 years worth of Nectar points on a Sony Microsystem - I have been without a working CD player for over a year, and this one will connect up to my ipod too! Very exciting.
The weekend will start at lunchtime; having missed my Thursday morning off due to the course, I have Friday afternoon instead. Bliss! We are going to the cinema to see the film Black Swan, which I am quite excited about, being a ballet lover. Swimming tonight, and then a relaxing day on Saturday (what will I bake, I wonder - I have yet to decide) before back to work on Sunday - oh the joys of the current 6 day week.
Next week's blogging will be somewhat different as I will be participating in Library day in the life. This is a project designed for librarians to share what they do all day! Lots of the participants will be those who already blog about libraries - my blog is more personal, but I still thought that my blog readers might be interested in what I get up to. To be honest, at the moment next week doesn't look too exciting but you never know - we have had an awful lot of excitement of the nasty kind at work recently (power outages, broken lifts, leaks), so a quiet week would be fine by me. I hope you will all enjoy it!
Hope you have a good weekend!
