Yep, I need to finish The Diary Of an Edwardian Lady first though , I have an omnibus edition. I'm enjoying it very much. It's my treat every night for 1/4 hour. Wildlx, I can see why much of it reminded you of me! I am constantly thinking, I think things like that or worry about some of the same things in the same way. I love the description of living in a village. Having lived in a village for 10 years, although many things have changed, many essential things have stayed the same. The village community putting on 'shows' in the church hall. The vicar and wife (although now it's the vicar and husband or vicar and partner etc) are still at the heart of the community as everyone kind of owns the Parish church, even if they don't go there on Sundays. The eccentric characters, oh, it's all very recognisable. Even here in Suffolk, living in the suburbs, there is still some semblance of that left in the local community.

Anyway, yes to the next book but will probably not start until August at earliest.

I've ordered the book from the library because it was over £30 to buy. However, we are 3 in a queue of 3, so may take some time to arrive.

Wildsx, we coud bring it over when we visit and all read it at one on the beach!!!

Oh my, that sounds jolly. Just be careful where you splash the suncreen since it's a loaner.

Really? I've seen it for about £4 for a new ppb on Amazon UK? Am I looking at the correct book? :dunno:

But maybe you prefer to read 30lb hardcovers on the beach. lol

Hardcover - remember we only have hand luggage honey :) . And last time I had to do some ingenious repacking to get everything in on the return trip. Including the iron tea light holders which have a pointed end to push into the ground , these got me into trouble at security :blush: .
