Talking 'bout Books in July

Now reading the Mark Mason book - interesting & funny. When I've finished that it's onto Diana Gabaldon - this is almost as big as the one I just finished (819 pages)! The Howard Jacobson one will have to wait - on loan from a book club friend.

Ruby Tuesday - keeping warm

What you do when you don't have a Wheat Heat Bag.
I filled a pair of bed-socks with bird seed (I had lent the wheat bag I had been given, to my sick friend).

Hot stuff!

Nasturtiums taking over. Just a couple of flowers to pop in the salad. Slept late this morning, no leaping out of bed to look after my friends dog (she is recovering from a gall-bladder op as well as now being treated for a duodenal ulcer but is back home). No picking veg (did that yesterday). No shopping to get (have enough to keep going for a week). Will probably try & finish 'A Breath of Snow & Ashes' (only another 84 pages). See you all tomorrow - have a good W/E.

Suprise, suprise!

Surprise post came yesterday from someone in Canada! No indication who sent it (I seem to recognise the writing) so whoever you are thank you very much. Maybe someone on Post Crossing as there are stamps cut from postcards from all over the world.

This shadow is so much nicer than the one I saw last night at 1am. Some idiot trying to open my fly door. Thank goodness all doors are secure!

Goodies arrive!

Parcel from oogleboops full of good stuff. Thank you so much, Pat.

Make way for progress

They better not be getting rid of these wonderfull trees just to put a road in for a shopping centre. Fingers crossed that the trees are just being 'trimmed'.
