Thanks to all those still reading my blog in spite of the fact that my life is getting duller and duller. I even bought myself some flowers today just to try to cheer up. I have left my memoir for a while and sit and do Codewords when I feel too lazy to do anything else. I can put on the odd book review – when I find one I enjoy. The last one was a rather hot thriller. It depends what my readers would like. I do put reviews on Goodreads, so that I have a list of everything I read.

When bending down and reaching up make one breathless the temptation is to sit and do nothing. I tried to book a cream tea for our club but they have changed the menu so it is mince pie! I’m sure we will have our fill of mince pies in the next couple of months.

We can’t cut the grass as it is soaking wet but also a foot high so it won’t be funny when we do try. The garden gate needs replacing and the man who came to see it has not replied to my calls.

That’s enough moaning for now.I won’t post again until I have something more cheerful to write about.

I am a retired schoolteacher now writing novels in Worthing where I live with my husband. 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.

  1. As I get older, I find I have less interest or desire for things that used to motivate me. I no longer care about high grass. The deer like it. Winter is coming, so the grass will die back anyway, but roots will prevent more erosion.

    I have always loved reading, but lately I’ve started re-reading books that were important to me, or books that have come down to me from family, that I’ve never read. I keep a hand-written journal, in which I write impressions of books, current events, thoughts and activities. Looking back on old journals shows the progression of my life, but probably nobody cares, except me.

    I admire you for sharing your thoughts, even your frustrations, with the daily trials that show your humanity.

  2. I wish you a day that brings contentment. Enjoy your friends, even if you don’t care for mince pie. (I don’t like it at all.) But, if someone invites me to join them for some, I’m willing. Cheers, Muriel
