Yesterdays post about the book Gaining Ground by Joan Barfoot brought lots and lots of comments, thank you to everyone, especially people who've never commented before. I reckon I ought to be on commission from Amazon for all the people who've ordered a copy of the book! was my mention really the cause of the price now being £27!!
It was only 1p a couple of months ago......honestly.
I looked on Amazon for the book mentioned by Sharon in Surrey in Canada (The Book of Eve by Constance Beresford-Howe) but I think it's very different in that Eve walks away from an abusive unhappy marriage and then later finds love elsewhere. Abra In Gaining Ground is in a safe marriage, she loves her husband and children but is overwhelmed by a sense of emptyness. She doesn't want or need human contact and it's only by living in the cabin on her own that she finds 'whole-ness'.
I'm glad I'm not alone in feeling the way I do and then feeling guilty for feeling that way! Also pleased that our grown up children all have loads of friends and enjoy being really social as I wouldn't have wanted my feelings to have been passed onto them.
Sharing and finding others feel the same means I feel more empowered now to be as anti-social as I want!
Now the Make do and Mend...............
How to revive an elderly cheese grater.
Insert the tip of a metal skewer under each of the grating bits and prise them out. Simple!
Poor new neighbours. Their removal company went into liquidation on Friday! Half their furniture and possessions were stuck in a depot and they had to pay another company to collect their stuff and deliver it to them. Sounds like a proper moving house horror story!
