What’s round and bad tempered? (The answer to this classic cracker conundrum is at the bottom of the page)
Having had to force myself away from the blog to get stuff done recently, like move house and then and bodily move people out of my way whilst Christmas shopping etc. I came to realise how much I enjoy the interaction I get with you guys. I probably spend more time with your blogs than I do with my friends around my home town, not only that but it’s nice to have a voice that people are genuinely interested in listening too.
as of yesterday though, I am now officially mobile and WiFi’d up so will be accessing your blogs at all times of the day and night and sometimes even twice a day. So far I have added 23 of you to my favourites, with more to follow when I get around to it or more accurately when I get my head out of a book.
Speaking of books, as I so often do, the December haul of books has been kind to me, with a Tim Moore travel book, Everything’s Eventual and Jostein Gaarder’s last book The Castle in the Pyrenees, amongst others. Although the highlight arguably being a paperback version of Helen Cresswell’s, The Watchers: A Mystery at Alton Towers, which to my knowledge is out of print at the moment. So far the prologue is progressing nicely with an air of mystery, just what I like.
Earlier on I had my first introduction to The Railway Children, the 1970’s film version, which I really enjoyed, although I now feel like I have probably missed an even better book, but then again it is Christmas and you have to get into the spirit. I will probably make this an annual festive film though, along with Tron, The Wizard of Oz and one of the first six Star Trek films.
So from me and the kids, until next time, toodle-oo!
Answer: A vicious circle.
