It’s always busy at this time of year with so much going on, particularly with the schools. What with fetes, sport’s day, assemblies, shows and the children’s carnival.
The carnival was almost rained off. On the day several of the local schools abandoned the whole thing, but our school was one of the three that carried on, walking round the streets, banging their drums in the pouring rain and keeping the smiles on their faces. They did so well. By the end, we were soaked to the skin and my phone, purse and watch (which I’d slipped into my bag to stop it getting wet) were floating in a puddle in the bottom of my “waterproof” bag, but I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
I didn’t get any photos – it was too wet for my camera which fortunately was in a waterproof case inside my not-waterproof bag.
I have blogged before about Daughters of Ireland by Debbie Blake here. It really is an inspirational book and I learned so much from it. I bought the paperback when it first came out and the good news is that it is now currently only £1.89 on Kindle.
Another book I have read recently is End of the Road and other stories by Rosemary Gemmell and I must say they are the kind of short stories I really love, highly readable with a bit of bite. I enjoyed every single one. Rosemary’s book is only £1.99 on Kindle.
Hope you are enjoying summer whatever you are doing.
