Back at work this week and all is still quiet in my department. But you know what it's like when the days seem long and the evenings short! By the time dinner is prepared and eaten; the dishes washed and the once round the walking circuit completed there isn't much time for anything else. I continue to plod away at The Octagonal Box and with the lid and the base complete I'm working on the sides. Fortunately my 'tennis elbow' seems to have settled a little and I can manage with minimal discomfort if I'm careful.
I counted up the list of books read last year and found to my surprise that it was 105. Surprise because I didn't include on the list any of the e-Books borrowed through the Library, so in reality it would have been many more. Out of that number some of course are forgettable and some eminently memorable. Yesterday I finished reading aloud to the DBEM - A Year in the Life of The Yorkshire Shepherdess (Amanda Owen) and we both enjoyed it very much. The DBEM has just completed Anne Frank's Diary on her Blind Foundation Talking Book so a tale of life on the high dales of Yorkshire was a complete contrast.
And so the new year begins Chez Nous.
