So when will there be good news - Friday nights?

Cold wet winter days in bed when you're suffering from 'flu need to be spent with a good book or two under the duvet. As I try to get my temperature down one that I've been enjoying this week is When will there be Good News by Kate Atkinson. It combines the pleasures of a crime novel with literary fiction and is a satisfying read. I've also enjoyed Joanna Trollope's Friday Nights. It's good to have a book about female friendships and rivalries that reflects on work, relationships and family in this sort of narrative way. It's given me some ideas about my management course and the passion some of put into work being very similar to the passion we put into other areas of life.
