It was a windy cycle ride down to Friston this morning to get to the library van, but I was blown home again with this lovely bagful of books. 3 or 4 are new books by favourite fiction authors, there are a couple of new authors to try and some non-fiction too.

We are still eating our way through the Christmas day leftovers, all delicious except for the Aldi 3 bird roast which we thought had very strange flavoured stuffing as well as some really tough meat.
