Sunday Salon – Check In!

It has been about 6 weeks since I posted a Sunday Salon. Where does the time go? I have been busy reading, sorting and culling ready for our house move.

Pigeon English by Stephen KelmanReading is once again my release valve and I seem to have picked up the slack of reading which is great. My local book group met as always on the fourth Monday of the month and the meeting was the discussion for the Book Pigeon English. The discussion that followed was very enjoyable and I always find it fascinating the different things each one of us takes from reading the same book.

Meanwhile, two online book groups read for April Friendship Bread by Darien Gee. I am still reading, savouring each turn of the page. The next book for the Full Bowl of Lemons book group is the Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom which I ordered from the library and collected yesterday.  Marigold’s Loft book group have selected The Color of Tea by Hannah Tunnicliffe.

I spent the rest of April participating in the A-Z April Challenge. This is the 3rd year I have taken part. The first year I was random in my postings.Each day was different . Last year I wrote about Australia, my previous trips, genealogical research and this year again was Australia based upon my trip last year. I am now pondering on what to choose for 2014. I always write my posts early which in theory gives me April to visit other participants. This year I failed miserably. The house sale and pending move along with the cull of genealogical papers, books and other items gradually taking it’s toll.

Just to finish. Today is Mass Observation Study day, where those in the UK can share their daily diary and email across to the project. You can read the details HERE

Until next time!

    Sounds like you've had a busy month! Mass Observation Sunday sounds interesting, but there's some folks I'd just as soon not know what they did. Dartmore looks cool. Wasn't that where the Hound of the Baskervilles was set?
