a mixed week, spent at home, working and getting things ready to return north. some highlights:
we watched beef, which is quite different and a bit more angry than our usual fare, but still entertaining.
the boy got a tentative diagnosis for his ailments. it’s not a happy, things-will-be-fine kind of thing… but perhaps it’ll be manageable nonetheless. still testing, waiting and hanging on to the oral corticosteroids to keep his overactive immune system in check.
a trip to ikea to stock on linen and some veggie meatballs. caldo verde with cabbage from the garden.
i made progress on different books, and finished solitaire. i decided to join a friend’s quest to read books in which the titles matched the alphabet — so far, i’ve knocked out G, H, I, N, O, P and S. not bad for january! maybe afterwards, i’ll do the same but with authors’ names.
speaking of books, i bought a few of oseman’s heartstoppers for the grown-up godchild, who hasn’t read the series yet. i hope she’ll like it! :)
and last but not least, a czech friend from my study room group came to visit, and we took a couple of days to show her around tavira.
