Yes, I am still around – but sooo busy…
- “Weathering” by Lucy Wood, which I think makes an excellent cold-weather or rainy-day read (not actually had any of that, but still!)
- “Running Blind” and “The Freedom Trap” by Desmond Bagley, as exciting as back in the 80s, so any thriller by him, really!
- “Headhunter” by Jo Nesbø – a clever plot, if a little primitive at times :o!
- “Through the Language Glass” by Guy Deutscher (perception of colour in language) followed by
- “Colour: Travels through the Paint Box” by Victoria Finley – these two go very well together…
- Any of the Maigret books by Simenon, my duo was the Old Lady and the Dead Girl
- A History of English Food by Clarissa Dickson-Wright, which is just what it says on the package, a great romp through a cuisine that has undeservedly got itself a bad name and is nothing less than fascinating!
A lot of knitting in the sun – when I get back home to Switzerland, there will be plenty to document 🙂
I even found some Breton wool, something I had never seen in the 25 years I’ve been coming here:
On BBC Radio 4 this morning, they were discussing what “rest” means to various people – I can definitely say that for me, sunshine and a breeze through the trees, feet up with a book or some knitting, plenty of water and tea and beautiful surroundings certainly do the job! I really have nothing whatsoever to complain about. My husband joins me this week, too!
Back in October…
