reading Amitav Ghosh’s River of Smoke. Lost in a world of ships, opium and rare plants in nineteenth century China.
listening to James Yorkston (and excited to see him again at tomorrow’s gig)
buying too many books. Must stop book browsing and start reading. New Oxfam bookstore opening in town does not help!
loving holiday planning! Off to the Lake District for the first time. Guide book gives the Eskdale Valley full marks for hiking, scenery and beer. Count me in, whatever the weather..
