The Metamorphosis of a good old book to …..

I’d been thinking about reading a good book for a long while now, but since driving came on the scene, reading for pleasure became insurmountable! Last week, whilst talking to my neighbour,who has a big library, I mentioned the need  to sink my teeth into a good book – she instantly produced a fat softback, which I  haven’t been able to put down since.

Ring

  As one of my birthday gifts, Max (a friend) gave me this knitted ring. I unwrapped the pretty tissue it came in, and she said ” oh this lady at my church knits bits and bobs,, I know you like odd things, so I brought you this thumb ring”. Thanks Max. I wore it on my thumb a few times, but it never quite felt right, so it sat in my accessory basket for 2 yrs. On one of…
