A little spring reading. The top book was treasure found at Oxfam Books in Cirencester - "We Didn't Mean to go to Sea" by Arthur Ransome. I absolutely loved Arthur Ransome when I was young, and I'm hoping the boys will enjoy him too, although I think they might not be quite ready yet. In the meantime I'm thinking I might read it. I read the first part of Steig Larsson's Millemium Trilogy a few weeks ago; ready for the next one now. And in our local community bookshop I found Dodie Smith's "I Capture the Castle", which I have heard great things about, but which I have never read. Apparently it was voted no. 82 of the nation's 100 best-loved novels, so definitely worth a look. I'm really enjoying Cleve West's "Our Plot", which is about his allotment, and which is hugely readable as well as being inspirational. And there is also a little cookery - a book from Demuth's, a wonderful vegetarian restaurant in Bath, which I used to go to regularly Before Children; a little photography and finally some crafting, although whether I'll have the time to try it is another matter.
Looking forward to a little sun this weekend and maybe some photography practice at the eldest's football match on Sunday. It is a balance between watching the match and watching the 4-year-old. Last time I looked away from the action to check where he was and missed a goal. I am usually the one saying, "What happened? Who scored?" I shall try to pay attention, though for a dreamer this is hard at the best of times.
Hope you have a good one, see you on the other side.
