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
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.
by Charlie Mackesy
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.
I will be linking this to the Sunday Post over at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer , Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews, The Sunday Salon at Readerbuzz and then It’s Monday What are you Reading at The Book Date.
