And don't try telling me it is the first day of Spring - that is March 21st in my book. But March has certainly 'come in like a lion' so let's hope that at the end of the month it 'goes out like a lamb'. Storm Jorge is fading now and the wind has dropped considerably but there are snow showers every few minutes and it is by no means warm.
Sunday lunch out as usual today along with plenty of others - our restaurant was packed solid and the smell of roast beef and Yorkshire puds filled the air (I had salmon followed by Stilton and biscuits). Now I am home again through a sleet storm and the central heating has been turned up a couple of notches and I intend sitting down to make notes on 'Olive Kitteridge' for tomorrow morning when Book Group meets at my house. It is a first class book, I can thoroughly recommend it - by Elizabeth Strout.
It's lovely to meet for an hour and a half with a group of friends to discuss something like this. They are all lovely people and we share a common love of books. What could be better?
