Miss Read is the creation of Dora Saint who was a teacher and clearly understood that life very well. The novels were started during the Second World War and she continued to write them until 1996 - there are about three dozen of them. They record life in small villages in rural England - full of characters and comedy and places where very little ever happens and the pace of life is slow.
Meanwhile, having taken the 365Project picture (which was inspired by a fellow 365ers shot of the original Penguins) I went off to meet the people at the Antiques and Collectables Fair in the Parish Halls.
Finally, having been to the "Co" for some essential shopping I spotted this new poster. The appeal to buying local produce appeals to me.
The exception to that rule are bananas! If I were consistent then they'd not be in my shopping basket ... but ... they are ... though I do search out Fairly Traded fruit!
Right ... enough rambling for one night!
May everything in this my being
be directed to thy glory
and may I never despair.
For I am under thy hand,
and in thee is all power and goodness.
