What Time Is It?


Spring forward, fall back?

I never get the time change right, thankfully, they do it on a Sunday, allowing me the luxury of a day with nothing to do in order to wake up in full panic wondering if I'm early/late for something because I didn't change the clocks.

Winds of change blowing. They make me wonder what is in store.

Our Neville Fact:


Our Neville's favourite book is his well worn hard back copy of Three Men in a Boat:To Say Nothing of the Dog. He re-reads it on a regular basis, roaring with laughter over the antics of the scoundrels and their holiday contained within the covers of this novel. Margaret despises this bit of reading, and wishes our Neville would find something more solid to read, along the lines of Dame Agatha Christie or even the bloody Reader's Digest Condensed Books. But, no, year after year, he reads Three Men in a Boat, laughing before he finishes a line, mumbling them to himself when he shuts the book, all in all very pleased with the writer, the adventure he wanted so for himself, and the fact he'd hollowed out the inside long ago, and where he slips bodice ripper romances by Barbara Cartland to read, with Margaret being none the wiser.

Barbara C? Alas, no action in them ones or as I can remember. Just pale pretty heroines sighing and leaving sentences incomplete. Maybe a Mills and Boon?

A bodice ripper??? This man never ceases to amaze. Now if it were a Paddington book, Margaret would've pounced on it to make sure, but...

Thank you ever so much for the Neville fact, it was ever so delightful!

Three Men in a Boat is one of the all-time classics.

In an odd way, it's a little bit of immortality, like your mortal remains feeding a tree.
