Big Sky*

Work hard at Spin. It’s The Boss’s class. Here we are:

Teach Swimming in Pilates and it goes well and teacher is pleased with me. The class seems particularly tough today: am still not 100% after the heatwave I think. Here I am:

Come home and start reading the new Jackson Brodie detective novel by Kate Atkinson, Big Sky. It’s brilliant. Show you:

Have lunch, a bath and a rest but can’t sleep.

Feel So Much Better after completing my two exercise sessions which reassured me that there is Some Point to it all.

Thank G-d the hot weather has vanished for the moment. It’s been raining on and off all day. Fluffball is in for the day now.

Am going to return to my book now. Kate Atkinson is one of my favourite living authors, along with Fay Weldon of course and Martin Amis. Anyway – a new Jackson Brodie novel is certainly something to celebrate and want to crack on with it a bit before supper.

Am sitting on the grey sofa. The panther lies next to me, resting his heavy head in my lap. I stroke the soft back of his neck.

Happy Friday everyone!

*2019. By Kate Atkinson. Jackson Brodie detective novel.

    Good grief, I just realized I’ve only ever read one Martin Amis novel (“Money), and that was over 25 years ago. I apparently have some catching up to do.

      You do! Read “Experience” which is non-fiction but is my favourite book by him

        I just added it to my Wish List. I know his relationship with his father was complicated; and soon I guess I’ll learn why. 🙂 Tks!
