More books etc

Time to catch up,
The weather has been playing tricks with us lately, after the cold and windy period we had two days of rain, now the sun is shining out of a clear blue sky as I speak and it's quite mild, BUT 'they' have forecast a return to very cold weather next week.
Last night we had a family meal fourteen of us, to celebrate Sarah my grand-daughter's 20th birthday which was on Wednesday, a jolly good evening it was.
Tonight it's the monthly games evening at the church hall , and to-morrow being Mothering Sunday, we are gathering at Karen's for lunch. I think it will be bread and water for the next week or so.
A short while ago I posted about books and how much I love them.
To-day I went to the local library to return last sessions. among them was an autobiography by Frank Sinatra's last wife Barbara.
He was a wonderful singer, but by all accounts a very difficult man to work and live with. I didn't know he spent so much money for charity, though it's no big deal when you're worth millions, [maybe I'm being uncharitable here].  Her life seemed to consist of spending money buying trinkets and very expensive presents having an attending lush parties and jetting around, altogether it came across as a bit of a shallow existence
To-day I chose an Autobiography by Sarah Ferguson Duchess of York,  Prince Andrew's ex wife,
 'That Woman' a biography by Anne Seba of Wallis Simpson .who married Edward V111 forcing him to abdicate the throne. A autobiography by Andy Williams called Moon River & Me, he was a wonderful crooner.
and what looks like a good little read called A Time Remembered, by Richard Walker,  the authors tale of four magical years during the war [1937-44]  in Dyfed Wales. I have a couple of chapters to read of a book from the last library journey, again about the war, and the LVD's but a story fiction based on fact. It's been a good read. Well that's about it folks. I'm off online [?] to sort out my car insurance.
Oh and just to mention a good and dear friend of mine Madge, has won Crufts Obedience with her bitch Trendy. I am so pleased for her, it's about time as she's come second on a couple of occasions.


  1. Congratulations to your friend Arlene well done! I used to love going down to the library and sifting through the shelves .. Although a nook would not suit me at all anyway.
    I started to read Norman Wisdom's and it was most enjoyable what a hard time he had, must finish it soon.
    Enjoy your evening
    Hugs Sheila xx

  2. Congrats to your friend!! It is always nice to be appreciated for good work.

    I am reading 2 books at one time now. I am having trouble getting interested in one of them. xx

  3. Sounds like a busy and fun weekend for you! I hope you enjoy it.


  4. Thank you Sheila it was well deserved, she is a highly dedicated trainer.
    I was never a great fan of Norman Wisdom, though it's often surprising what an interesting life some of these actors had,
    We had a good evening, we played cards. Many hugs from me'n' Ruby {0}
    I wouldn't be able to read two books at one time Beth, good luck and don't get the characters mixed up. LOL
    Hi Sandie, I did have a nice weekend in good company, the downside is that the weather has got very cold. Thanks to all for calling.
