For Christmas one of my nieces gave me an Amarylis bulb. We did all the necessary as per the instructions and low and behold. What a stunner!
Other presents included a book by Kate Adie - I think her latest one - called "Nobody's Child". It seems that people either love Kate Adie or hate her. Personally I think she's extraordinary. This book is about foundlings and the history of foundling homes. It is something about which I've never thought beyond hearing reports on the radio from time to time. She has mixed the history with copies of documents from the 1800's onwards and also with interviews of foundlings still alive today and how being a foundling has effected them.
For this book I must thank Granny!
Some of you have been kind enough to ask about my running. I has come to a grinding halt. A few weeks ago now and just after the gruelling 13k run, my right leg developed a sharp pain whenever I ran and to begin with when I walked. The physio doesn't know what it is but it comes and goes. Not a good ingredient for a half marathon and sadly, once again, I've had to give up any hope of taking part in the race on 9 March. The school team is still training though and I will post photos of the day itself. And if anyone wants to sponsort them....?
