  1. What's the weather like?

    Pretty hot here, we've been getting a hot airflow from Australia. But nothing like the heatwave they're having with temperatures over 46 C in some places today. Keep wondering how Kylie is faring

    very cockily. Agoraphobia was used to a very dominating father so she didn't find anything untoward in Joe's presumption. However, before she could answer, who should plonk herself down in a chair beside Agoraphobia but her good friend Rena. 'Hiya, Aggie! That's gey brave o' ye to be oot in th' big wide world ! But whits this dafty daein' here?' 'Weel, he's just asked ... tellt me, rather ...we're aff tae th' pictures th' nicht.' 'Tellt you?' said Rena indignantly. 'He tellt you!!'

    Aren't they such wonderful characters? One of my favourite books I've read and very much enjoyed Three Men in a Boat and Three Men on the Bummel. A great humourist.
  4. What Are You Watching Now? - 2019

  11. I remember Little Women from childhood as being rather too goody-goody too but really enjoyed the recent mini-series I watched. I was tempted to re-read it in case my opinion improved ... but maybe not
  12. A Book blog, 2019 by Books do Furnish a Room

    I read Jeanette Winterson's Lighthousekeeping and found it a beautifully lyrical and moving book. One of my all-time favourites.

    Mustering up all her courage she scuttled into the mall, ordered herself a bowl of coffee at The Busy Bean and sat slowly sipping, in a corner by the window. From her vantage spot, she had a good view of the comings and goings and hoped beyond hope that she might catch a glimpse of the object of her infatuation.
