 No exercise. Not good.


I got on with the knitting, though. Not far, what with unpicking one major and one minor mistake, and untangling, but still I’m further on that I was at this time yesterday. I’ll hope for better tomorrow.


I’ve finished Plath’s “Letters Home”. The total effect is, not surprisingly, pretty depressing. So is world and national news, at the moment. Maybe I need some Wodehouse. Or “Sense and Sensibility” – I haven’t read that for a while.


I heard some of the State of the Nation last night, since I sleep with the radio on. He sounded very vigorous, and in command of his text. I'm not a fan.


Wordle: We found it tough today – fours and fives throughout, except for Mark who scored a brilliant three. I was one of the fives, perhaps needless to report. My third and fourth lines were both ???, grn, grn, grn, ???. I was mildly interested to note that no one else had this configuration, not even for one line.

    That's the spirit! Keep on regardless. Books: I definitely recommend Wodehouse as a break from depressing stuff. Sense and Sensibility is perhaps a little too grim. Maybe you should try a Terry Pratchett book. It's fantasy but there is wisdom mixed in with the humor. Witches Abroad, Guards Guards, or Going Postal are all good. Some have been done as audiobooks. Or for romance and humor, Barbara Metzger's Miss Treadwell's Talent - it's available as an ebook.

    I don't normally like fantasy but I love Pratchett's Witches Abroad.
