Back after two lovely and lazy weeks in the sun — and the rain.
I couldn't manage to get on-line from the island so I got plenty of time for reading and doing nothing.
My librarian recommended Jacqueline Winspear's "Maisie Dobbs" and "Birds of a Feather", so I brought them to the island. Two books I never would have read if she hadn't put them in my hands. I did enjoy them though even if I at times got rather irritated, as the translation isn't very good. I wish I had read them in English.
As Simon (at Stuck in a Book) has talked so well of A. A. Milne I decided to give him a chance — again. I've tried to read "The Two" in Swedish many years ago but didn't like it, so I tried some of his other works last week but am afraid that I don't share Simon's enthusiasm for Mr. Milne.
Some time ago Nan (at http://lettersfromahillfarm.blogspot.com/) wrote about the magazine "Slightly Foxed" (http://www.foxedquarterly.com/) — I ordered a trial issue and have enjoyed every word in it.
