Where did the last 4 weeks go?
Yesterday was library van day again and these are what had arrived from my requested books
Looking back at last months haul and quite a lot went back unread.
Agatha Christies I didn't get into at all and the same with the British
Library Crime classic by Anthony Rolls and one of the Peter Turnbull
books. Colin read "No Phoney War" but as it was details of warships and
aircraft, I didn't bother with it. Crimson and Bone wasn't my sort of
book after all. "Too Marvellous for Words" was the story of a girl at
Felixstowe Girls Boarding School in the 60's and I decided I couldn't
really be bothered with what mischief she and her friends got up to.
the rest..... I've already written about 'The Whitstable Pearl Mystery',
'The Anatomist's Apprentice' and 'The Savvy Shopper's Cookbook'. 'The
Shipping Forecast' was a quick read but not the best on this subject
that I've seen. Anne Perry is guaranteed to produce a good historical
crime book and Trisha Ashley always writes light fluffy books with food and recipes!
Nature by Alys Fowler was described as being about her year exploring
the Birmingham canals by inflatable canoe but actually was more to do
with her discovering at age 37 that she was a lesbian and her
relationship with her ex husband and new partner. Four Fields was one of those books that I needed to be in the right frame of mind to read.....and I wasn't.
Yorkshire Shepherdess is still here to be read.
Day 5 of painting the living room, you've probably worked
out by now that I'm not doing 8 hour days! and honestly it is a big
room. Anyway a bit more has been done. The ceiling is finished, 2 bits of wall need a second coat and there's one wall that's had
nothing done to it as yet and then all the remaining skirting board.
Col was in Ipswich for the regular
blood test so went to B&Q for more Brilliant White silk emulsion for the ceiling
and they didn't have any. Weird. He had to go searching round other DIY
places to find it.You'd think it would be something they wouldn't run out of.
