Off for a walk to blow away the cobwebs.  Think we are going to climb Black Down (just a hill, don’t be too impressed) - nice views from the top.

Read Maupin a while ago - not all of them but the first few - remember Mrs Madrigal with a smile

How funny ....was just thinking of Michael Morpurgo earlier - another one of our favourite story tapes for the car. Once spent half an hour on our driveway listening to the end of Kensuke’s Kingdom ( all of us weeping).  And now I read that he is being knighted.  Do you think I am a tiny bit psychic ??

Welcome back Dacha - sorry you’ve been in the wars 

Big HP fans here too .....loved the studio tour.  We also used to listen to the tapes on holiday journeys- recognise the “are we nearly there yet” turning into “can we stay in the car a bit longer” phenomenon.  We underestimated how long we would spend in the car on one American holiday and had to buy the next book over there.  Stephen Fry doesn’t read theirs, it’s Jim Dale .....took a lot of getting used to 

Work done βœ…...feet up now with Mirabel Oslers “a gentle plea for chaos” ....a good gardening read if you like that sort of thing (which I do)
