Easter Holidays are so over – Sunday Post

My daughter and I had a lovely time visiting my folks down in Cornwall this week. Nine months is far too long between visits, but they both seem well and it won’t be so long next time (most likely half term at the end of May). My OH enjoyed the peace, quiet and solitude I know he has been craving.

Whilst we were down there I met up with somebody I used to play with down on the beach when I was a teenager (Hi Kate), a very long time ago. It was a huge blast from the past and she had a much better memory of those years than I had.

Darkspell and Dawnspell
(Deverry #2 and #3)
by Katharine Kerr

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I am continuing on with this classic fantasy series. I never noticed the homophobia that now seems obvious in the Darkspell but I guess we have moved on somewhat from the late 80s when it was originally published. These books are pure comfort reading for me though.

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse

by Charlie Mackesy

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a book that I have seen all over the place so when I noticed that my parents had been given a copy I couldn’t resist a read. A short read, taking less than an hour. A little sentimental but lovely nonetheless. I love the cake obsessed mole. Made me want to draw more.

  1. It’s such a joy to be able to safely see people we haven’t been able to safely see for a long time. I’m glad you were able to get together with your folks in Cornwall. And wasn’t it great to see your old friend?

    The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is a timeless story, I think.

    I’m still looking for In Ethiopia with a Mule.

  2. When kids can go back to school safely it will be wonderful for everyone. We are worried that there are still a lot of risks, especially as they are also allowing sports to resume (or have let them resume quite a while ago). Reuniting with friends and family is also great when safely done.

  3. Our students started back, if they wanted to come back, at the end of March. So we’ve had them for about two weeks or so now. It’s weird, but kind of nice getting back to somewhat normal. Hope you enjoy your new books!

  4. It’s so much fun getting together with friends from your childhood.

    All your books are new to me. I’m going to see if my library has The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse.

    I hope you have a great week!
