I sat down to contemplate the last of what had been and the first of what was to come
P.D.James’ last novel in the Adam Dalgleish series ‘The Private Detective’ was my last read for the year and even though I didn’t plan it that way, the first book in the same series ‘Cover Her Face’ was one of my first reads for the year 😊
My first read for this year will be the last book I picked up from the library ….. ‘Daughter of The Hunter Valley’ by a new to me Australian author Paula J Beaven – her debut novel, historical fiction (a genre I enjoy) inspired by her connection to early settlers in the Hunter Valley

And that’s as far as I got with this a couple of days ago.
The last day of last year turned into another very hot one – too hot even to enjoy reading in the shade of the trees beside the deck so indoors we came. Last drinks of the night were well before the witching hour and if fireworks were let off locally we certainly didn’t hear them 😊
The first days of the New Year have arrived!
And with them those ‘will I/won’t I……shall I/shan’t I’ thoughts
Those yearly thoughts about…..resolutions- goals – intentions- aims – pledges
That have on occasion been known to invade some people’s minds
I have none of those or even A Word of the Year selected for this coming year
When I have chosen one I find I’ve lost track of it not long after 😊
At the moment I’m hoping the encouraging phrases below will continue to guide me
Bye for now……Take care…..Cathy xx
