Hoping for a quiet evening

Last night like Monday night I ended up in bed early - 9:00pm last night and I slept through until 5:00am this morning when I woke up an hour earlier than usual.

Being as my mojo is a bit erratic at the moment I ended up at lunch time going into W H Smiths and buying some books and magazines for a kind of lazy evening doing nothing (it has been really busy at work) and I am getting myself back into the swing of things gently.  A while back there was dramatized on television the Ken Follett  The Pillars of  the Earth and subsequent books.  I was quite taken with the storyline on this but I actually prefer to read the book for myself to get a feel of how the author is/was portraying the characters he has created.  So today I treated myself to The Pillars of the Earth.  What attracted me  - they had an advertising display for the latest of the "Kingsbridge" Series.  The latest tome is entitled "A Column of Fire". 

More information on Ken Follett and his books here

I intend to work my way through all of them "World without End", and "A Column of Fire".  Trouble is if I get lost in a book I become very anti-social and cannot put the book down until I have read it and the way the miniseries was portrayed was very good, but I need to read the book.

I also have some magazines a couple of gardening ones and also a patchwork and Landlove magazine.  So I should have enough to keep me occupied this evening.

Right off for a curl up and a read.

Catch you soon.




  1. I must re-read this and subsequent novels of Ken Follett's. It's certainly the time of year for snuggling up with a book (mine is currently Conn Iggulden's "Dunstan" which I feel you would also enjoy.

    I love the Landlove and Landscape magazines too - beautiful photography and some recipes and crafts which are always interesting. Which patchwork mag did you get? I have just taken out a subscription to Today's Quilter which is the patchwork magazine I buy regularly. At 72% off for 6 issues, delivered to my door, it was a no-brainer. I paid just £9.99 and after that it is 18% off.

    1. Hi BB, I am picking it up every chance I can. "Dunstan" sounds good I will have to look that one out. I love the Landlove and Landscape magazines. They are what I call proper coffee table magazines and to boot has so many interesting articles and recipes. The quilting magazine I got yesterday was snap "Today's Quilter". Great minds think alike. It is one of the better ones. Thank you for letting me know about the subscription that is a very good price. I am going to go and get my nose back in my book. OH not too well at the moment so I am going to leave him be for a little while and read. He might get some sleep then. Take care sweetie. Tricia xx
