Today has been Book Group and how we all love it. Just five of us and we meet in my bungalow to enable me to attend these days. We meet for two hours - coffee and a biscuit and then an intro by whoever has chosen the book and then a discussion. M's choice this month - Maggie OFarrell's 'The vanishing Act of Esme Lennox' - a very well-written but disturbing book which brought back so many memories for all of us. We really had the most fascinating discussion. One which I feel could have gone on all day.
The weather has been pretty abysmal so that has been the sum total of what I have done today. One minute a glishy sun through black clouds the next minute pouring rain. Another storm (beginning with B this time after Arwen last week)promised for later in the week. Hopefully this one is likely to hit the West more than the East - the poor North East has now had its ninth day without power.
It is certainly 'the dark days before Christmas' as my mother used to call them - four o'clock here and looking out of the computer room window it is pitch black. Only fifteen days to the shortest day !
