Seventh Sunday Salon 19.50

It is a sad reflection of my life at the moment that I cannot find the poetry book I was reading this morning. There has been a much needed Hodmandod clear-out resulting in a pile of books by the front door ready for the Oxfam shop. I have been ruthless but the house is still in a mess. I now have to tackle the ironing pile.

I have made little progress with my writing either.

I think that is going to be it for today. I shall leave you with a slice of Christmas Tree...

Word count: 15 700

Your Christmas tree looks beautiful! I hven't got anywhere near doing the decorating yet. It's a good idea to have a clear out at the same time, and no wonder the poetry has gone missing....

I do love the slices of life from Club Hodmandod.

I misplaced one of my books yesterday and figured I'd hidden it from myself because it was such a slog. hehee

I ironed 6 work shirts yesterday while watching Keira Knightly get swept away in Pride and Prejudice. *sigh* So romantic. :)

Oh Clare, you make me feel guilty - house tidying it is going to have to be!

First: Table Talk... Do not feel guilty...if only you could see. Such a mess. I am starting to dream of a great big skip.

Heh, very good Dr. Lei! It is a good thing we are all so well educated - I am sure it improves our ironing :-)I have now found my book at the bottom of the ironing pile - not that I've finished it yet.

And Dr. Hamel I presume - the founder of our little group...I am revelling in it.

And Lit Love - you write such interesting informative pieces - it is an education in itself.

I feel very lucky to have 'met' you all.

Heh. This is so how I feel sometimes. Except that I don't iron.

I'm still looking for "See Under: Love" which vanished at the point Bruno-Schulz-the-character vanishes.
