We did the annual visit to the extended family today and only got back an hour ago, so no painting today or tommorrow for that matter, as the in laws are coming to stay for the weekend.
Anyway, I finished reading The Gladiator yesterday and was underwhelmed. It was all a bit random and disorganised although I did find out a couple of useful details about the organisation of gladiatorial games.
To make up for lost time, I'm now reading Dusty Warriors by Richard Holmes. It's not a subject I'm especially interested in but it's about the only book by the author that I haven't read. I'm expecting it'll be well worth it.
