Your place or mine?
The busy Bee
The aroma of Lavender
Circle of Sunflowers
Through the tunnel
Light a candle for the world
Hello, I'm back on the blog! Have you missed me? Or has life carried on as normal? I heavily suspect it's the latter, but I'm back anyway.
And what a relaxing but busy time I have had with my six days annual leave (and it's not over yet, I return to work tomorrow). I've caught up with friends and family, lunched, shopped, picnicked, walked through country parks, dined out, and generally had a nice time avoiding trains, computers and alarm clocks. Oh and I've had my hair done (trimmed and blonder).
I hope you enjoyed the pictures.
You may have noticed the new book cover too, under 'I am currently reading'. The last book - Where did it all go right by Andrew Collins, made a refreshing change from the normal type of book I read, but they do say a change is as good as a rest. Basically it was an oasis of happy memories in a cruel world - diary and text format from the authors life in Northampton, covering school days, family holidays, the punk era, and West Ham actually winning the FA cup (Saturday 10th May 1980). I am a West Ham Supporter and I have soaked up the atmosphere of a live game at their home ground, and mistakenly wore a Tottenham top.
Interestingly, Andrew Collins has written for NME, Q magazine, The Observer, Radio Times and was a script writer for Eastenders where he managed to introduce a goldfish into the regular cast.
So the current book, 'quite ugly one morning' is about a corpse. It's apparently a nightmare of frightening plausibility and wickedly entertaining. The book is also the winner of the 1996 Critics First Blood Award. Watch this space for book updates and more blog ramblings!
