Lovely collection of books from the library van yesterday, most I had ordered on-line but I did pick up the cookery books off the shelf to have a look through and the Dorothy Sayers crime.
HERE. I've read "Spuds,Spam and eating for Victory" before but don't have a copy on my WWII shelves. The other is called Rations - A Very Peculiar History and is actually a childrens book but I thought I'd give it a look.
I'm most looking forward to the books by Alys Clare and Jacqueline Winspear both historical crime, one is medieval and the other set in the 1930's.
The little blue book is "Terms and Conditions; Life in Girls Boarding Schools" which I saw mentioned on some of the Book Blogs I read.
Far right........ almost chopped off the picture is "The House on an Irish Hillside", I must have heard about it somewhere.
Well, thanks to Janice who googled "aged ceramic bottle birdhouse"
As for Col, he is still in hospital and feeling pretty rough. The infection that made his temperature shoot up on Sunday has been difficult for them to track down. He spent from Sunday to last night on a ward they use for overflow, right at the other end of the hospital from the Oncology ward, not very convenient for the doctors and specialist nurse.They finally had room for him on Somersham ward last night. He has had saline drip, blood transfusions, antibiotics and then had to have a diuretic too, all to try and sort out the problems and despite having a fan running all the time he is always so hot.
We don't know if he'll be in all weekend, we both hope not but things don't look good.
I shall keep busy with a boot sale, antique fair, the garden, visiting Col and all those books and of course the Highlight of the weekend is The Eurovision Song Contest!!! I feel compelled to watch it, don't know why because I guess UK will be somewhere near the bottom again.
Back Again Soon
