"A Scottish Wind in the Willows on high end skunk."

"I enjoy Kate's stories..."
"A fun and spooky read..."

"The characters are so involving and
loveable that you do want them to really exist. It does read like you've
stumbled across someone's long lost diary from and alternate timeline/universe.
I quickly got into the story and loved every second of reading it...
total gem of a read by an author who deserves a lot more recognition."

Today's Walk, and other things - a field full of dandelions

Won't be long till the hawthorn - or 'May' - is out

Tortoiseshell butterfly

Dandelions galore

A day of heavy, blustery showers, and occasional sun.  This seems to be a very good year for dandelions.
I've had an idea - a 'writing idea'....more about this later, I hope.

Meanwhile, I'm enjoying my new book - Calcium Made Interesting, by Graham Chapman, mentioned previously.  It's the kind of book you can dip into.  An entertaining read.  Tales from the 70s of Keith Moon,  Harry Nilsson and so forth, and all pretty much as one would expect, if you have any knowledge of the era. Drinking exploits, often at the expense of hotel managers, which must have seemed hilarious at the time, but which now seem really self-indulgent, not to mention highly destructive and dangerous.  Doors blown off their hinges because gin didn't arrive on time, for example.  But that's me speaking from the dizzy heights of well-into-middle-age.

In other news, two more 1p. books have arrived:  The Haunted Hotel, by Wilkie Collins, and a biography of Rebecca West by Lorna Gibb.  Both look good.
