Been anywhere recently for the first time?
I’ve been troubled with a painful heel lately so haven’t been out and about putting too much weight on it any more than is absolutely necessary – but I decided to go to Stratford on the bus today, just for the hell of it. Not for the first time ever, but certainly for the first time in several months. It’s been rainy and dull and miserable so I visited the indoor shopping mall for a long-overdue wander around, which was at least dry and bright and warm.
List three favourite book characters?
Mary Lennox from ‘The Secret Garden’, Chris Guthrie from ‘Sunset Song’, and Winston Smith from ‘1984’ for 20th Century fiction.
Jane Eyre from ‘Jane Eyre’, Lizzie Bennett from ‘Pride and Prejudice’, and Anne Elliot from ‘Persuasion’ for 19th Century historical classics.
What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink – hot or cold?
Hot drink – tea, cold drink – milk
What did you appreciate or what made you smile last week?
Green bottles abandoned on walls – first I saw one high up, sitting above head height…
And then a few minutes later I saw two sitting together, side by side on a low wall further down the same street…
I know they should ideally have been placed in one of the many recycling bins instead of left lying around to litter the place up, but they still made me smile and I spent the rest of the day humming the tune to ‘Ten green bottles, hanging on a wall…’ 🙂
