I haven’t read much this week, I felt like playing Stardew Valley at the weekend and that sucked up most my spare time. Curse you, addictive games! I have played it before but decided to start a new farm on Switch, despite my PC farms being incomplete. I think I can kill the monsters better on console. Fishing is still frustrating.
I did review the wonderful The Galaxy, and the Ground Within and finish reading You Should See Me in a Crown, which is a delightful story set in a school obsessed with prom. The school does have its cliques, I liked that overall the kids were good kids. It also highlights sickle cell anaemia which I don’t think I’ve seen covered in a novel before.
The weather was glorious at the weekend, isn’t the first real sun after winter the best? I sat in the garden a bit and went on a proper walk.
Someone has turned into a cauliflower thief. Scully is obsessed with them and now we can’t leave her alone with the vegetable. Despite being a glutton, she doesn’t tend to steal food but there’s just something about them she can’t resist. Can we get some sponsorship from the cauliflower growers’ association or something? 🤣
