So for the first time I am trying the new version of Blogger, lets see how it goes - it certainly uploaded the photo quickly.
I was a bit too quick to write yesterday about feeling better.
As I mentioned yesterday was another scorcher and although some of my readers would like to join me in the warmth, I don't think they realise how very hot it was!!!! As per normal with down-under, a few hot steamy days is only the prelude for the HUGE electrical storm that follows - very heavy rain, great electrical displays (beats a lot of fireworks) and loud thunder. And of course the temperature has dropped by about 10 degrees today. So in sympathy my head decided to explode - well not really, but that is only cause I was holding it together with my hands :-) Thank goodness that is a rare occurance for me!!!
I put a weather gadget on my site yesterday to show those from elsewhere what it is like here, but on checking what it had I will delete it today - not even close to what it really was like.
Now back to the book I promised yesterday - here it is
I have wanted to read this book for a while and kept putting it off - choice between yarn or book, and yarn had been winning until recently. The other reason I put it off was that for the last few years I had only read history non-fiction books and did not know if I was ready to go back to fantasy. But I so was ready!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It reminds me of when I was a child and use to become thoroughly absorbed into the story so I would forget everything else. A bit fantasy and a bit fact. A very easy read, which just teases you along with interest. The Authoress is an Australian - you can find more about her here. I will definitely be on the look-out for her earlier book "The Shifting Fog" or for Americans "The House at Riverton".
After reading about Kate on the website, I knew she would have a love of the old children's books - that is what I kept thinking about when I wasn't reading her book.
PS - I have always kept wondering what The Garden Bell was on about with no spell-checker. Well now I know - the new version does not have one!!! Someone tell Blogger we need it!!!
PSS - A big thank you for everyone that left the lovely comments on AB Ripple Pillow both here and at Flickr - THANK YOU!!!
Have a great weekend
