Mid winter

You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.
C. S. Lewis

I’m trying to think what I have read since my last post….. surely I must have got through at least one book… I am half way through Anna Karenina at the moment, but seem to have temporarily put that on hold while I make my way through some Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle which I have borrowed from the library. I shall resume Tolstoy’s book once I return Doyle’s. I’m enjoying both books so far.

Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius.
Arthur Conan Doyle

While I mention Sherlock Holmes, I have to quickly rave about the BBC’s series “Sherlock”. Absolutely fantastic, can’t recommend it highly enough. Exceptional filmmaking, brilliant acting, mystery, drama, action, humuor and wit. What’s not to like?

Less than a month until my Sri Lanka trip! Time is going quickly. We have passed the shortest day so I guess that means we are heading back towards summer again now! The weather here has been stunning over the last week. Perfectly clear and crisp days – my favourite sort of winter weather. This was my fabulous Saturday.
