#Microblog Monday 1 – A book over the weekend

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

A well worn beanbag and a fun breezy book were the two things I had in my island of happiness this weekend. Sophie Kinsella’s The Undomestic Goddess is a great way to relax. What an absolute fun read! Wonder how I missed it despite having read a host of others by her.

The thing about it is that it’s completely unbelievable in a very filmi kind of way. I mean what are the odds of someone giving up a high flying job (no matter how huge an error they make) to become a housekeeper? And mastering gourmet cooking over a weekend or two? Or having a handsome gardener at hand to ensure a happily ever after?

Yet it’s highly relatable at some level. As in don’t we all have ‘to do’ lists that remain ‘to do’ for ever? Don’t we all have horrid bosses who hand over work just when we’ve something planned? And of course the cooking debacles! I too have tried boiling an egg in the microwave.

A weekend well spent!

  1. That's funny that you brought up the egg in the microwave because I tried poaching an egg in the microwave a few weeks ago. I wrote up the notes on how to do it in my journal. And then, afterward, had to write: "this doesn't work." Two eggs wasted.

    Sounds like a fun book.

  2. I've also read some books that have plot turns that seem completely unbelievable. Yet coincidences and other strange things do happen in real life. Glad you enjoyed the book and your weekend.
