This is the second book I've read recently about women who have serious health problems. In June it was Josie George's book 'A Still Life' The memoir of her life with an
unexplained painful illness that sometimes reduces her to having to rest
for days on end. She writes about her small world between her home, her
son's school, her friend's home and the community centre. It is
beautifully written, noticing all the small things and finding joy in
life as it is for her. The book sprang from her blog.
Summer of Sport 2021 - Olympic Update Day 5
There was an unexpected medal in rowing but then the other men's 4's didn't get a medal they were supposed to win. Swings and roundabouts So many things going on at once that BBC kept flitting between one thing and another and then changing from BBC 1 to BBC 2 for some reason that only they know. After a look at Gymnastics they changed to the Individual Dressage in time to see Charlotte Dujardin. (How on earth do they get the horses to lift their feet like that?) Charlotte won a Bronze - her 6th Olympic medal in total - more than any other British woman.
I think GB ended the day with a new running total of 16 medals
