Weather report? Good, average has been 33, strong winds and high tides. No rain for ages and yet
What am I reading? Started with ‘The Gathering’ found it tough going and half way through I stopped, then I started a lightweight novel, read that – easy reading – family story. Then I picked up ‘The Gathering’ again and began to enjoy it. Now reading ‘A Round-Heeled Woman’ by Jane Juska, a Yanchep book club choice.

Things have happened in the last couple of weeks. The Other Place in Two Rocks no longer has our art work; we decided to take it all out.
The weather has been rather hot, mid to high 30s, the swimming has been great & there has been a sea breeze most days.
My garden is looking very neglected – weeds everywhere.
I have been contacted by a couple of people regarding the Beck family of Northolt, even a photo of John Harvey & Emily Beck (nee Samuel) taken between late 1897 & mid 1898 when J.H was manager of The Star & Garter, St. Martins Lane, Strand, London. I now know that Emily was born in Disserth, Radnorshire,

It's about time I made some more postcards to send all over the world. I have just sent my 200th official postcrossing card. Now I have over 1000 used Australian stamps I can get sticking. Being a member of postcrossing.com has kept me very busy over the last two years.

Stinking hot today (37.4) & I had to drive to Joondalup in an unairconditioned car! 40 tomorrow – think I’ll stay in front of the fan all day, after my swim. Nice easy day of lying around reading. At the moment I am reading ‘Remember Me’ by Liz Byrski, just one of the Christmas presents from Sam.
