Barnaby Rudge and Grip the Raven
I finished listening to Barnaby Rudge and I have to say I enjoyed it very much. I particularly liked that illustration as it fitted very well with the image of Barnaby that I had in my mind.
I have changed my car. I now drive a Peugeot 307 estate and Matty is very pleased with it. Bonnie does not like it as much as my VW Polo as she has been confined to the boot so far. It's a very big boot but it's still a comedown for her.
My granddaughter is one calendar month today. She is even more beautiful than she was. I really do hope she doesn't peak too soon!
We are looking forward to having Katy and her fiance come to stay. We expect there shall be a great deal of talk about weddings. We shall try to bear it.

There are some other things going on which are not a matter for levity. As always, in the midst of Life....
And that is all.... for now.
