Strange book by Mary Wesley, 'Jumping the Queue' our book club choice. I didn't really like any of the characters. Black humour written in 1983. 'The House by the Thames', history of Bankside, interesting so far. '1788' The Brutal Truth of the First Fleet' by David Hill, waiting to read as is 'Odd One Out' by Monica McInerney. Not very interesting shadows here - many more at Shadow Shot Sunday.
Only just discovered on Monday - Hampstead New End Hospital Register of Deaths with Abraham H Beck last on the page - died of Myocardial Degeneration & Cardiac failure on 27th May 1928 age 70. Another brick wall falling down.
Yesterday at the Library 9 people turned up to do some research, pity there are only 3 computers!
Books: Now reading The Girl on the Wall "A unique, beguiling and very personal social history of one British life over the past seven decades, told through a hand-sewn tapestry" this shot is from the back of the book.
The Books: The House by the Thames - waiting to read, Kevin Rudd - almost finished, very interesting, Julie Walters Autobiography - waiting to read, Abandoned - almost finished, powerfull true story, The Solitude of Thomas Cave - waiting to read, The Girl on the Wall - waiting to read.
Same old magic square, lettuce, mixed green stuff etc in spite of the cold weather (not cold compared to some other countries!).
This patch may get a bit more sun now the trees have been cut back. Potatoes & spinach just showing. Will sow more seeds next week. I spent yesterday at Wanneroo setting up my art space. Today I raked up small branches left behind from the tree loppin & then sat in the sun warming up (warmer outside than in!).
