Bethany has been watching You Tube videos about drawing, which is one of her favourite things. They are obviously not Australian videos as this is a skunk. The glitter didn't work out quite as she planned and was whisked away before it could infect the whole house and everyone in it.

The weather has, most definitely, turned. It's dark later in the morning and earlier at night and much cooler. It's a great time of year for being outside.

As for what we are reading and watching: Toby's new favourite book is Toby Alone by Timothée de Fombelle (not in French), Jossie is still all about Percy Jackson and Bethany is writing her own fairy book. I just finished (again) Brideshead Revisited for book club and have gone back to The Submission by Amy Waldman. I am loving Spooks and Great Expectations on TV and Joss and Tobes are watching Lord of the Rings with Andrew! Only seven months or so until The Hobbit! Richard Armitage as a dwarf?!


  1. Lovely to see you all so active! And Bethany really has a talent for drawing... I am reading Anne Enright's "The Forgotten Waltz" - enjoying it so far... just finished Eliot Perlmann's "The Streetwalker" - FABULOUS.

  2. Bethany is such a good little artist. I'm impressed! Great Expectations is fabulous....I can accept that Grand Designs is over for another series if Charles Dickens is the replacement.

  3. would that be revisiting "Brideshead Revisited"?
