Not forgotten

Yes, I am still around – but sooo busy…

img_6757 img_6763A dozen or a score of books or so, and I can particularly recommend:

  • “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:

I really have nothing whatsoever to complain about. My husband joins me this week, too!

Back in October…

  1. Far, far better than messing about in boats … though that also has a lot going for it!
    Delighted for you that you have been able to “just be” and enjoy la dolce far niente xxx
