Could be Worse

Sharon - I can lose hours watching the birds on our feeder. I don't have the variety you find there, but it's always good to see them.

Eileen - I hope that I'll be able to share loads. The little birds can be tiny but so assertive and energetic.

Rajani Rehana - thank you!

Bless - that sounds delicious!

I had a shocking night last night and I have a really bad stomach today. I didn't go for a walk as I was worried about being too far from a toilet! Something has really upset my tummy. I didn't move much at all.

On the other hand, I did some writing stuff, so the day wasn't completely wasted.

The pic that makes me smile is here.

It's sort of writing stuff (I'm trying to quarantine most of the writing stuff at the bottom as I know not everyone follows it, but it sort of spills over). I have a medieval fantasy coming out soon, and I will be writing bits of fiction and articles linked to it over the next few weeks. The jug is a prop for the pics I will take, though I suspect that it's the wrong shape for a proper early to mid Middle Ages jug. It still made me smile. Once I've done that, I'm going to use it as a little watering jug for the surviving spider plants (DH killed a spider plant. I didn't think that it was possible.)

Writing stuff - I've been busy with editing but I've also written a book review. I'm planning on delving in to book reviewing as I hope that it will broaden what I read. I have a bad habit of going back to the same favourites again and again. If I get things right, they will normally turn up on Friday, but I've committed to a particular review this Friday, and I need to clear the decks. Today's review is of Kolkata Noir by Tom Vater and while it was much darker at the end than the books I normally read, especially at the end, I very much enjoyed it. The review is here

Hugs and good health to all. 


  1. A couple of years ago I tried a new genre of books and discovered some excellent writers. I hope to start using our local library far more than I have been. It's a great way to try something new without the expense

  2. I hope you're feeling much better today. x

  3. I'm glad you found something to make you smile despite not feeling well.

  4. Hope your tummy has settled and you are feeling better.
