Taxing holiday

Supposed to be on holiday this week but in a weaker moment I agreed to come back early to do a wedding. I dont mind really. In fact it is an honour to do this wedding but it did mean that Monday was taken up with designing the wedding bookie.

Tuesday, I started on my Income Tax Return – the September deadline having passed. That passed away a whole morning just filling in receipts. Abandoned it after lunch to go and watch a film with D&K thought we could use for our Film Night. It is called Life is Beautiful and is Italian and won lots of awards. Yes, there were subtitles so I couldn’t knit (prayer shawl) at the same time being a novice at these sorts of things. I really didn’t think I was going to enjoy it cos it started off in a sort of slapstick kind of way and I am not a huge fan of that kind of humour. (Unless it is happening right in front of me in which case I will laugh like a drain (?why drain?) )  But once they got to the concentration camp it all got much better and I loved the end. Make of that what you will.

Finished the Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O’Farrell which was very weird. Loved the writing but didn’t much like the jumping back and forth and lost track of who was writing what. Good story though.

Off for a flu jab today. We clergy certainly know how to relax!

  1. Jeez Ruth,

    It must be in the air. That’s exactly the sort of day-off which I had on Monday. Phone rang incessantly. One of the conversations necessitated a loud argument (at least I thought it necessitated a loud argument and was happy to provide one). Tossed and turned that night. Sucks, don’t it?


  2. Sure does, RR. Just realised I have an overnight committee meeting on Sunday and I’m doing worship so now I’ve got that to arrange too.
