  1. Rest in Peace

    That's how it came across to me at the time.
  2. Rest in Peace

    He came to the town I was working in at the time (in the 1990's) and I went to see him. He certainly was magnetic and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. He didn't save me though!

    Further to this, I showed these to my father and he now wants a life size one of himself. Not within my skill set unfortunately, lol

    My Own Story, Emmaline Pankhurst. Saw this on sale in the bookshop last year and bought it because I've always been interested. Now, in the year marking 100 years since some women got the vote it seems appropriate to me to hear it from the horses mouth.

    Wow! Thank you Meg, these are amazing!
  6. This Census Taker

    This is a short book (140 pages) and it's just as well. China Mieville is one of my favourite writers and this disappointed. The only reason that I kept reading is because the prose is good and I thought that there would be a twist in the end that I hadn't predicted. The prose is good but there was no twist, unpredictable or otherwise. It's the story of a boy living his life on the side of a mountain and what happens to him. The census taker appears at the end and it's obvious what he does. Unless I've missed the point, and I may well have, this book does not deserve the praise on it's cover or the name China Mieville as it's author.

    Sometimes Momac. The doll I'm making of my father is a different story and very frustrating!

    It's good to see you on BGO, Hazel. Congratulations on your impending auntyhood and well done on the upbringing if your sons. Clearly your eldest felt secure enough to ask to be tested and that's a testament to you and your husband's parenting. You should be proud of yourselves and him.

    I finished doing this today. It's an Easter costume for a mini doll, which I also crocheted. She's 24cm/9.4 inches

  12. How Reading Changes Your Brain

    If you are paritally sighted/blind then you have no option. I still think that you can imagine what's happening if someone is reading to you. I had no problem with that as a child when being read to.

    Boarding a 'plane and venting on social media is different. I tell my brother from time to time that I'm going to kill him. He just laughs because he knows that I won't. I have said something similar on my FB page about my father, again it doesn't mean that I am actually going to kill him. If you are at customs and 'joke' about a gun or a bomb then security can't let you on the 'plane just in case it's true.

    This particular incident was very well planned and the shooter was known to the authorities. He is also still alive so the potential for getting a reason is there. I'm sure that if the authorities who knew about this could have done something to prevent it they would have. Perhaps there is scope there to improve things by making sure that someone like that - who is known to the authorities - can be prevented from actually doing harm. Trouble is, he said on social media that he would do that but that doesn't mean that he was going to. A very difficult situation with no easy answer.

    I'm sure that you do. I may have another attempt at it with my newfound perseverence.
