I am still waiting for a sedate weekend, or even a sedate day would suffice, as I seem to have to leave the house for one thing or another everyday.

Wednesday I had to get up early as I had to pick up a rental car to get to my appointments that afternoon. My husband was on a course in Stratford-upon-Avon and had to take our car.

Thursday we had nice weather and I was persuaded to hang out at the Hilton in Stratford-Upon-Avon for the morning and then enjoy sunny day by the river.

Friday, I had to admit the CPAP was getting increasingly uncomfortable and was giving me a sore throat from the constant dry air via the face mask. Rather than not complying with the therapy I rang the Sleep Clinic and requested a humidifier, which just slots onto the side of my current device and feels a lot more comfortable.

If the weather remains fine tomorrow, I fear there will be more temptation and further disruptions to my reading and reviewing schedule. However, by Sunday evening thunderstorms will no doubt give me an opportunity to plough on with my reviewing.

I suppose what I’m really trying to cope with is adapting to changes in my current circumstances. Nothing at all remains the same as it did six months ago and I’m not sure I am alright with the changes in me and my environment.

I can only be optimistic and hope to bring you more great book suggestions.
