The book is called 'The 10pm question' a novel by Kate De Goldi. If you want to know a it more about it then click here
I started it today and easily read the first chapter, so far so good, I'll let you know how I get on.
Another book I've started, and finding hard to get into the flow with, is called 'The Waterhole' by Murray Annals, it's one Sue read recently and has loaned it to me. I'll get back to it after I've read the one above, I think perhaps I didn't have my reading head on when I started it.
As a kid I always had my nose in a book, once started I was gone, lost in the book that became my world, so lost that it took missiles flung at me by my mother to bring me back so I could eat dinner.
I can still be like that now, the other day I re-read The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I read it in an afternoon and didn't shift off my backside the whole time. When I read is some years ago it wasn't long after our friends daughter Shannon passed away, I was pretty devastated reading it at the time. Bizarrely this time round I hardly remembered any of the story and had a completely different reaction, in that I didn't blub at all. It's a good book and I'm glad I've resisted the urge to watch Peter Jackson's movie of it.
On my hook
A while back I was asked to make a crocheted blanket for a friends daughter who was expecting a baby, the baby has since been born, a little girl. They live in the Gold Coast Australia and luckily for me it's still summer and extremely hot there so they aren't desperate for the blanket just yet. Lucky because it's a work in progress and it's taking linger than I thought.
It's a new pattern I'm trying from here
Not your usual baby colours I know, but I like that and of course the photo doesn't give a true representation of the colours. I did a few rows today but it's a bit hard when a big wedge of skin is missing off the top of your finger.
Why is it when you do something like that then it's the only part of body you ever knock! I looked at it today when I changed the dressing, I really did a good job on it! I did consider sharing it with you but decided against it, here in NZ at the time of posting it's dinner time, didn't wanna put people off their dinner!! It's also getting in the way of typing, I've had to correct so many typos!
Off to read a few more pages and maybe have a snooze before Joe gets home from day shift
bye for now
