Just Wondering

If you're a parent, what's the hardest part about being one? If you could get one thing to help you out in being a parent, what would it be? What's one thing you wish more parents were better at, whether or not you're a parent yourself?

Is there a story behind your real name or avatar? How did you end up being called that?

If you retired tomorrow (or in some other way no longer had to work a job anymore), how would you spend the free time you suddenly had? Would it be new hobbies, volunteering, visiting family/friends? To what age do you think you'll have to work before you can retire?

Yet Another Book

Of course, whilst i was in Eastbourne the last shop i visited just had to be right next door to a Waterstones bookshop .I succumbed ,and having read one book on Thomas Cromwell from a historian who seemed to put all the blame on Thomas rather than the King (Henry VIII),this book is a more up to date revisionist account.

In Eastbourne

Here i am in Eastbourne
On another hot sultry day.
Just done two of my visits
With the third about to do.
So without further ado
I shall be off to that one
Then all will be done.

Sunday Music Selection - All Sorts

So,time for a bit of music i think - some of the music i have ben playing today.


The Smashing Pumpkins - Perfect



More music hereCollapse )
Enjoy.
Robert Hutchinson "Thomas Cromwell: The Rise and Fall of Henry VIII's Most Notorious Minister" (Orion)




This was an intriguing, easy to read account of the career of Thomas Cromwell, notorious chief minister to Henry VIII.

Robert Hutchinson sets out the main events of Cromwell's life and times without going into much detail. . Hutchinson brings to life the Tudor court in all its madness and corruption, illustrating how easy it was to fall foul of the king and meet a gruesome end. Some of it being very gruesome so i recommend reading without eating food in front of you.

This is really just a primer and he does write in an engaging style and hence this book would be a good starting point for anyone interested in Henry VIII's world or that of the Tudors in general.

Sunny Day

Wowza! What a lovely sunny day it has been
I managed three hours of sunbathing
I listened to an audio book whilst tanning
Then dreamt of Dakota Fanning.

The book i listened to was The Short History of Everything
By that avuncular American Bill Bryson.
I am now in the middle of chapter nine
With quantum physics and the nature of time.

Tomorrow i will be in Eastbourne
For three covert phone shop visits.
So hoping the weather stays fine
Coastal sea breeze and brine.
