Lazy Sunday Mornings


Easy like Sunday morning is something I’m not familiar with.  Sundays mean homework, football matches and running around getting ready for the week ahead.
Last Sunday however, my husband was playing golf, one son was at a sleepover, and the other had his football match cancelled and was practising being a teenager by staying in bed as long as he could.
So I decided that, “if you can’t beat ‘em, you should join ‘em” and stayed in bed too.  Only my lie in included a cup of tea and a good book.
Normally I read in short bursts when I get the time, but on Sunday I decided to indulge in a long luxurious read.  It was bliss!
It’s a long time since I’ve read any Erica James books, but my mum passed some of them on to me the other week, and I’d made a start on A Sense of Belonging, earlier in the week.
Erica writes about strong, independent women, who, whilst ambitious, aren’t afraid to fall in love. Her books are also set in Cheshire, close to where I grew up, which adds an extra interest.
I forgotten how much I enjoyed her books, and this was no different.  I can honestly say I didn’t want to put the book down, so guess what? I didn’t.  I was sad to finish it though and can’t wait to start on the next when I get a minute.

  1. I love that your son is practising being a teenager :-)

    This is so weird - you are the third person today who has recommended Erica James. I'm going to have to treat myself :-) x

  2. Hi Teresa

    She is a treat, I'd forgotten how much! A nice bit of escapism.
