Lately I've been....
Other wildflowers in the bluebell wood including Forget-me-Not, Dandelion, Red Campion, Cowslips and a white flower, possibly Greater Stitchwort, perhaps someone reading this can identify it for me?
The latest Masie Dobbs novel by Jacqueline Winspear. I always enjoy these novels and the latest one didn't disappoint. In this book Maisie visits an old friend of her former mentor Maurice Blanche in Mecklenburgh Square, in Bloosmsbury which is the setting of Square Haunting by Francesca Wade. In this book the author visits the Square during the inter- war years when its inhabitants were some of our literary giants. She has chosen five women to follow including Virginia Woolf and Dorothy L Sayers. Pulpit Rock is the latest of the Ben Kitto novels set on The Scilly Isles. I always race through these as they are an easy read.
To podcasts and BBC radio programmes 'Life in the Garden' by Penelope Lively read by Stephanie Cole. 'The Stubborn Light of Things' a delightful podcast by nature writer and novelist Melissa Harrison and 'Obsessed with Line of Duty' a podcast by former cast member Craig Parkinson.
'Line of Duty' and 'Keeping Faith' 'Make Up: A Glamorous History' and 'The Repair Shop' all on BBC also 'Secrets of the Transport Museum' on Yesterday (Freeview) and Criminal UK on Netflix. I'm not finding a lot of things I want to watch at the moment as there are a lot of repeat programmes and as much as I've previously enjoyed Poirot, Marple, Vera, Endeavour and Lewis, I've probably watched them two or three times and really I want to see new programmes but I suspect it will be a while before things get back to normal. It's not a gripe more an observation.
Today is the last day of April and what a strange month it has been. Today we've had brilliant sunshine and hailstones. I had my second Astra Zenica jab on Wednesday and it didn't make me feel as ill as the first one did, so far so good. I'll be back over the weekend with bluebells.
