I'm ready

Got this yesterday, really looking forward to watching everything. I shall ignore all the politics that crop up every 4 years and just enjoy the sport.

Also "donated" £1 to the Oxfam charity book shop and was given these.
Once again I shall blame Scott at Furrowed Middlebrow blog for his overwhelming list of WWII authors. Without his prompt I would never have thought about reading childrens books written at that time.

I've just emptied the boxes containing my collection of WWII books and made a list of what I have = 80 books and that's not counting any relevant fiction on the living room shelf. I'm going to type them up in small print so they'll fit onto one sheet of paper, then I can keep a copy in my bag. Sadly, I then had to pack them all back into the boxes again.

Colin is keeping a diary of his hospital stay on his Facebook page and wants me to link in HERE.  for anyone who's interested in all the gory details!

Thank you for comments and thanks to Sadie for the computer shop info. I have resisted all prompts to change to Windows 10 so it's not that causing the problems.
Welcome to  new followers Happy at Home and Chris West and possibly someone else too. It was once possible to find out if new followers had a blog of their own but this is yet another thing Blogger has changed recently, so let me know if you do.

Back Soon


  1. Children's books do make good reading and I often revisit some of the classics I read as a child. Free of all the adult themes they bring their own set of perils and good humour for a spot of light escapism.
    I have just dug out my dvds of several films and television series to revisit during the forthcoming days as gluing myself to the Olympics while trying to unglue myself from Social Media just won't work in this house! lol Enjoy your viewing.

  2. That is nice of Col to let people see his page, it will give people a insight and also help people who are will be going through the same thing.

  3. Aww wish Col all the best, I might follow his progress X I love reading children's books. They are so entertaining and I love the different edge reading them gives you!! You sound JUST like my ma in law who ADORES the olympics and will be glued to her telly this next fortnight! Xx

  4. I am waiting until the paper comes out tomorrow to see if there is an Olympic special then I might buy that. I have my country flagbunting on order from t'internet but not come yet so making do with my union jack bunting in the kitchen for now. My youngest is very excited and wants to see the opening ceremony but I don't think that is going to happen as it is on so late. Best wishes to Col.x

  5. I don't know enough about it, but my DH works in computers and programming. My laptop was acting up badly. Slow. Error messages. He upgraded it to Windows 10, ran full scans, and that fixed it. Something to do with compatibility with web sites and their programming? Thanks for sharing about meals yesterday. Many of us women happily cook for others, but not so much ourselves. The washing up puts me off.


  6. hope Colin is doing well.I have that supplement from the Radio Times here by my side.Really looking forward to the Olympics.

  7. I shall think about you down there enjoying it all. Imust say I am only interested in the finals - awful I know.
