A retrospective meme

(Pinched from http://stuck-in-a-book.blogspot.co.uk/) “This lovely annual meme is all over the place again, and I can’t resist. Essentially, it means copying the first line from the first post of each month, as a nice (if perhaps aleatory) overview of the year… Go ahead; do it yourself! “… ALEATORY…? Goodness me!
Anyway, here goes:


The British are good at weather.


As the rain continues to fall, interspersed with the odd few hours of sunshine, indoor tasks become the focus of my attention.


Not a chess term – just a few lovely days checking out Welsh castles.


There are some days which stand out in memory as ‘perfect’.


Now, where did you two pop up from?


Back in the days of storm and tempest, when trees were falling like nine-pins, a massive oak keeled over in the village, bringing down fences and destroying a wall.


A fortnight’s silence on this blog = lots of activities which have kept blogging well and truly pruned.


Last week, on one of the hottest days of the year, OV and I were to be found climbing up to the Bath ‘skyline walk’, pausing every few metres to enjoy the views (and get our breath back!)


I note, with shame, that a whole month has passed with ne’er a squeak from me on this blog.




What happened to October?


I can’t recall months flying past with quite such abandon, for several years – but here we are, nearly a month after my last post and already in the throes of celebrating Christmas.


About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset - but have had to leave the countryside at a little distance, having moved into town.
