So after the mad dash to complete a birthday jumper for T (see yesterday’s post) it was straight onto a sleeveless jumper for Master H who has a birthday in March.
The yarn is by Sirdar and is called Crofter.
I have finished reading the book about the Dust bowl which was totally fascinating. I have since read two books in rapid succession – easy reads- one by Dick Francis loaned to me by my Dad. Called the Field of Thirteen, and containing thirteen short stories. I will be honest and admit that I have been putting off reading this, imagining boring tales of horsy people. Well all the stories were set around race tracks and the people who inhabit them, but the stories were quite well written and each had a nice twist at the end.In fact perfect reading when whiling away the hours in a hotel room which we did at the weekend on our location hunting trip.
After that I read a book I found up in the attic whilst de cluttering. It belonged to Mr J who read it at school and who had told me was a good book I would enjoy. By Anne Holm and called I am David,it tells the story of a boy who escapes from a camp to travel to Denmark in the 1950’s. I especially liked that he choose his own God having heard conflicting accounts of God in the camp. He choose the God of green pastures and still waters.What a lovely image of God. I wonder did anyone read this as a child and what did you think? Also has any child recommended a book which you have enjoyed.
I finished that book last night so am now going to read this Joanna Trollope and then it will be a more serious book again.
