Here I am - tucked away in a corner of a second hand bookshop! This is my idea of a heavenly afternoon. My Mum was with me and she got bored of waiting - which is why she started taking photos!
I finished 'The Girl on Times Square'. The ending wasn't even 'happy-ish'. It's certainly not a book you would want to read if you were feeling slightly low. I can't say that I enjoyed it that much really. I have, however, started 'The Bronze Horsemen' and it is just a good as I remember it.
Today Mark and I went for another lovely long walk round our local lanes and canal tow paths. This picture is of the furthest point out in the walk. I live the other side of the hill that you can see in the distance. It's no surprise that my legs are aching this evening!!
As we staggered the last few metres home (!) we met up with our neighbours, who were washing their cars. We haven't seen them properly since Christmas so it was fabulous to stand for a while and a proper natter. Anyway, I eventually raised the subject of my great crochet frustrations and it transpires that W. has been crocheting for years. She is going to have a little practice in private (because she hasn't done it for a while) then she has promised to give me a tutorial. I will master a granny square!
Seriously, thank you to everyone who commented on my previous post, especially Emma's kind offer to meet up. Also, a warm welcome to Emma and Lily - who have joined my little gang of followers.
