I hate NTL

My mailbox refuses to acknowledge that I exist. This is not the first time this has happened and no doubt it won't be the last.

Just managed to avoid getting soaked on the dog outing this morning. Rain started as we reached the stile. Got wet feet though. The ditch has overflowed onto the bridleway at one point. So much so that it resembles a large duck pond. I'm expecting the geese to take up residence any day now. Must remember to take a snorkel with me next time!

Books!!
Just one break in the clouds of gloom this am; Postie delivered my Amazon order.
Kate Adie's "Corsets to Camouflage: Women at War", "Web Design in a Nutshell" and "Cursed". Have dipped into the last one because - well most of you know why. It was recommended before Christmas but Santa didn't deliver. I have to say, on first glimpse, is incredibly badly written (Sorry if I've just offended anyone out there - but it is. It wouldn't have passed muster if I'd been beta-ing it I can tell you.) I'm going to stay with it for the plot though and - hey - money changed hands!
