I first read this book when it was published back in the 1970s and have read it a couple of times since. When we were moving I hardened my heart and gave it with the boxes and boxes of books to the charity in Carmarthen who were still taking books. It's written by Anya Seton and the review of it here may tempt you to seek out a copy, if historical timeslips are your thing. It is a book I can lose myself in anyway, and right now, is about the best way to get respite without leaving the house.
I decided my blog was becoming a "poor me" moan, and of no interest to anyone, but unable to get out anywhere for weeks to have much "me time" it was inevitable, and everything has been grinding me down. There have been further health problems et al and further challenges over the weekend, and I spent all morning on the phone, which I find wearing at the best of times. Hoping the LPA problem has been solved but that requires an answer to a phone message I left this morning, so fingers crossed.
Keith and I were just watching the firework display on the Showground - it's the Welsh Winter Fair being held there and queues of traffic on the lane to go over the bridge across the Wye. Fortunately I was able to go up the inside lane, and up the road past the Strand and Eco Chic AND get parked - a minor miracle. I had to go out again this afternoon for another prescription for Keith, and not only was there a parking space, I managed to reverse into it. If there is a long queue of traffic waiting for me to do so I tend to get flustered.
I knew this was going to be a tiring day - I'd been up and downstairs 10 times before 10.30. Now that's got to 21 an the day's not over yet. Hoping I will sleep well tonight.
Sorry, not much to report. Tam was here for just a couple of hours on Saturday morning, as she was meeting up with her best friend (who's settled in Sheffield now) at the Elan Valley. The winter weather brought us a beautiful hoar frost and I went out for a walk and took photos in the afternoon, but the computer has filed them somewhere random again. I couldn't face trying to sort it out today. Gabby has been making phone calls on my behalf again too, so that lightens the load.
I don't know how often I will get a post together but if I go quiet, don't worry, life has gotten in the way again.
