Winter Sun

Even Hayden was still for a moment yesterday, to enjoy the gentle afternoon sun on his toes.















It was a lovely day. A day entirely without plans. We ate well, shopped (my new green cardy is pictured above) and after our little rest we went for a bit of a walk up Castle Hill.















In this picture you can catch a glimpse of the other side of Townsville, the vast flat western side that yesterday somehow looked quite cozy, like a village in a valley.

We stayed for the sunset, then walked home in the dark.

yay, finaly some picture of you on your blogg. i love hammocks. one day i'll grow a tree big enough to have one.

i noticed on your book shelf 'Tender is the Night'. Is it worth reading? The introduction of mine put me off of it so I went back to 'Number 9 Dream' by David Mitchel.. which I'm also struggling with. I loved 'Cloud Atlas' by David Mitchel and 'The Great Gastby' by our man Scott but I think TITN and N9D are both non-events.

I loved TITN ... but maybe much of that was to do with finding out more about Scott Fitzgerald's life. I would advise you to skip the introduction. I hardly ever read introductions, and almost never before I've finished the book.

I'll try to find Cloud Atlas.

I want a hammock! Always have. Only one tree in our garden though, so not likely to happen in London.

I liked both the David Mitchell books, though Cloud Atlas is the better. I thought Number9Dream had a more sympathietic main character, I'd skim-read the kamikaze pilot diary though. And skip the awful 'Goatwriter' bits altogether - they add nothing.

can you send some sunshine to go with our hammock please...

Naomi said...

I'm sending it ... it will get to you in about, oh, four or five months.
