I spent a lovely relaxing hour in my summerhouse reading Lady Chatterley's Lover! I know I should have been tackling the ironing pile (which is so large that it resembles the leaning tower of Pisa) but somehow I just couldn't quite face it. I decided that I deserved a little bit of 'me time' so I took myself off into my little haven in the garden to read the next few chapters.
Although I knew that the book was a bit risque I didn't know the actual story. It wouldn't normally be my choice of reading matter but I have recently joined a book club and we decided that we should read this as we are going to see the play at our local theatre tomorrow night. I'm not sure if I'll manage to finish it in time. I still don't know how the story ends so I may have to go to bed early tonight!
Our book club meets up every 4-6 weeks and we take turns to host and choose the next book. Our group is not at all highbrow (maybe some of the girls are but they hide it well!) we are a bunch of Mums who enjoy a good read, a good chat, a good laugh and a nice glass of wine. Although we do 'talk books' and review our recent reads we also manage to cover a plethora of interesting subjects (I couldn't possibly divulge). We all have children and it is comforting to know that other families are going through the same trials and tribulations - some children moving up to secondary school, some doings GCSE's, A Levels, University etc. It's good to talk - I always come home feeling so much less stressed!
Anyway, I'm looking forward to going out to see the play tomorrow night. I'm off to bed to find out how the story ends!
