Book and Beer

Having a stab at doing something a bit different on the much ignored Instagram account, and thought I would put this mildly interesting effort on here, also. There are other things I could be doing but this seems like the most important when the day tops 21 degrees.

Having had a walk around the neighbourhood, and avoiding the main roads, it’s been lovely just appreciating the bright blue skies against the surprisingly many cherry blossom trees. Waving at dogs and horses and walking up steep pot-holed streets has also been a pleasure today.

A tasty beer and a great book in this glorious weather is the other perfect pastime. Washing down Irène Némirovsky’s words with a grapefruit infused IPA helps this reader appreciate the peace of the day, contrasting perfectly with those days in France as World War Two started to take its toll as superbly depicted by one of my favourite authors.

Both book and beer are highly recommended in any weather. Plant sold seperately. As per usual for a bank holiday weekend, the weather is expected to turn miserable so shall enjoy all this whilst it lasts.

  1. IPA with grapefruit – yuk yuk. We could understand IPA with dry cava but with grapefruit …
    Well, we read the beginning of “Suite Francaise” but were not impressed. We are just finishing Jeannette Winterson’s “Frankissstein” and some prosecco as well on our terrasse.
    All the best. Happy Easter 🐣🐣

  2. Good to hear all well and that you’re back to your old ways in the pub with Irene Nemirovsky. I don’t think I ever thanked you for that recommendation. She was a wonderful writer. My wife read the trilogy. I just may get a copy when I go to library later today. Cheers!


    1. I couldn’t get on with Suite Francaise in the end which is odd as I have loved her other books, part of it was the move with the upheaval and also that it skipped between people too quickly, which frustrated me. I will give it another go one day though, and appreciate it more, no doubt.
