A Serendipitous Find

Having watched and enjoyed Enchanted April so much, it occurred to me that maybe it was based upon a book. I checked the library catalogue and it was. So I ordered it promptly…And then realized that a reading group was also doing it, so all the copies were out and there was a long list. Bah!

So I did a google search- really only to find out a little bit about the author and so on- and low and behold, I find that the text is available on line! I read the first chapter in my lunch hour…Do give it a go, do!

This week has really skipped away from me. I had a lovely visit Monday evening from my friend who I used to take salsa class with. We are planning a day trip to Bath in the summer, and are thinking of making ourselves reticules in which to carry our pennies and so on.

I have been tired this week. Perhaps it is the grey dampness and darkness? But I am not without hope as my snowdrop on the windowsill greets me cheerily each morning, and my narcissus is shooting up long green leaved stems of hope.
