Musings and mistakes.

I just looked at my last post and found the spelling errors. As a one time English teacher I am ashamed I let them go through. My only excuse is the weather.

The dog keeps licking his paws so I have ordered some joint pills for him. I tried to use my credit card but they wanted a passcode on my phone and it is too much hassle so I did it on my mobile. Now I am considering giving up the credit card altogether.

I don’t know how people manage without a computer these days and fear for the time when we have no landline phone. Things are moving too fast for me, while I am slowing down considerably. A walk I could do in 15 minutes now takes half an hour.

I have started my own book list and will post reviews when I find something worth recommending. Goodreads wouldn’t let me back on so I have stopped trying.

I am planning to go out for a Spanish tapas meal for our anniversary but the menu is a mystery. Any suggestions? I feel four dishes might be enough for us, and they serve them with Sangria, which we know we like. It looked like everything was potato but I’m sure that isn’t the case. I must learn to read more thoroughly. I wonder if I can find an appropriate picture?

I am a retired schoolteacher now writing novels in Worthing. After eight locally based relationship novels I have now written a children's story which could be considered a pastiche of Beverley Nichol's works which I loved as a child and still remember fondly. " Penny Down the Drain" may remind folk of " Alice in Wonderland " or " Narnia." but it is set in the 21st century. Our two sons are similarly creative as one is a journalist and the other an actor. When there is no pandemic I am the publicity secretary for Worthing Friendship Centre and listen to live music , folk and jazz.
