Here we are again at Wednesday and I haven't blogged for a week. I really don't know why as I spend half my life at my laptop!
Well here's my desk, still no crafting but there is a rumour that I'm getting my sewing machine out. Just have to blog this and eat my cake!
So on my table is a pile of books I've been recommended. Fiona was debating the other week whether she should watch the film 'The Talented Mr Ripley', as it was one of her favourite books. I said I hadn't seen the film or read the book and she said I should read it! I took her up on the suggestion and Mr Ripley kept me company on a very irritating train journey to Wigan. I was gripped from the first page and it reminded me of the film 'Catch Me If You Can'.
While I was staying with Kirsty we watched 'The Help' and she said that the book is even better, she also suggested that I read 'The Secret Life of Bees'. The other books are; Marina Lewycka's latest, 'The Time Traveller's Wife', also recommended by someone! And a random choice of 'Monsieur Pamplemousse' by Michael Bond. I thought I would give it a go as I didn't realise he wrote adult crime fiction and also because the blurb mentioned nuns and the mile high club!
I won't be here next week as I'll be camping! Anyone who knows me will know that I'm not the camping type but I'm always game for a laugh. It should be hilarious as there are about 20 of us including 15 children oh and also the fact that the only camping equipment I have is one sleeping bag!
Wish me luck
