The Travel Scrabble is packed

Yesterday , before going to see Auntie Grace ( still weak but perked up a bit ) en route to see Nanny and John’s family ( all hale and hearty ) in Brum ,I woke up early ( as usual ) and finished my book .I’m not expecting any cheering and clapping, although inside I’m a little bit pleased as my sad and scrambled brain hasn’t allowed me to read one for about 8 months.My choice, was pretty predictable really – the number one best seller in the paperback-cheesefest-charts ‘Gone Girl’ by Gillian Flynn. For me , it was a page-turner , but a bit like one of those essays you wrote at primary school – full of twists and turns and promise ,then a stupid ‘I can’t be arsed to work out the end so I’ll tie it up in a couple of sentences’ ending .Now I’m about to embark on ‘The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared’ by Jonas Jonasson . I find if it helps to read if I’m in role – so I’m wearing my Scandinavian thick patterned jumper and chilling my Schapps.

The weather is lovely , so today we are barbecuing with friends and tomorrow a dear friend is whisking me off to The Cotswolds for a night in an olde country pub .
