Five go off to Devon


Hopefully this afternoon we're collecting the new to us towcar - a lovely Volvo XC90 in shiny metallic black - then we're finishing loading up the caravan and we're off tomorrow morning. Notes have been written for the house and fish sitters, Miss La's case is ready for when she comes back early to go to France with her friend's family. I still have my taxes to do but all the bits of paper are now in one pile in my office ready for me to check they've been entered in my notebook so I can fill out the forms.
I must remember to collect my holiday reading books from the boot of my car where I'd locked them to stop me reading them before I left. I've Veronica Henry's the beach hut and a collection of short stories from Maeve Binchy to look forward to. Should last me at least a day.
My Mum has her surgery this afternoon so all good thoughts for her are much appreciated

Have a wonderful time, Nell. I've just finished a collection of MB short stories. She's little short of genius.

Sending lots of warm thoughts for your mum. Hope she makes a very speedy recovery.

Thanks to all of you for thinking about my Mum. She's had the op took longer and was more extensive than they thought but hope they've got it all.

Phillipa, glad you liked Just Look at Me Now, it's so different in some ways from the others I wondered if people would like it.
