Now although one of the purposes of holidays is to relax, take it easy and recharge the batteries, I know, from experience, that I am rather inclined to take this too seriously and reach the end of my break from work without having achieved very much, if anything at all.
So this time I've decided to set myself some challenges, namely
- Spring clean the house
- Read Colm Toibin's Story of the Night (in addition to Tea Obreht's The Tiger's Wife which I must finish in time for our next Reading Group meeting a week on Friday.
- Draw up a four week menu plan
- Create a sourdough starter and start making my own bread
- Knit 5 granny squares a day for my younger daughter's blanket
