Wednesday Wonderings #2

Wednesday Wonderings #2

Some thoughts on a Wednesday that go like this

 

A good book to read: The Canterbury tales…yes, yes I know, it’s old language etc. (Middle English actually). But it’s been on my bookshelf for years unopened and unread and finally I read it yesterday. The Miller’s tale is my favourite…is this possibly where the phrase ‘Kiss My Arse?’ comes from?!!! http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/canterbury/section7.rhtml

 

A good website to visit: http://thewritelife.com/ Tips on writing and self-publishing

 

A good recipe to make: http://paulhollywood.com/recipes/ciabatta/ Ciabatta = YUM! This actually doesn’t look that hard to do…so maybe I’ll try it out soon!

 

A good cause to donate to: http://www.bats.org.uk/ The Bat Conservation Trust…one of my new favourite animals I think. Did you know none of the bats in the UK are fruit eaters? They all eat insects (or so I believe). When I lived in Thailand last year there was a bat cave near a Buddhist Temple which took 2 hours for the bats to come out at night – so just imagine how many lived in the cave!! I have a video on my phone…it looks like huge flocks of birds, but they’re bats!

 

A good place to visit: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/brimham-rocks/ Brimham Rocks, North Yorkshire. Ancient rock formations, walking, climbing, woodland, moor…a good day out

 

A good (?) joke to tell: What did Santa say to Queen Elsa? I’m Fro-ho-ho-zen! (I made that up!)

 

A good thing to know: http://www.businessinsider.com/what-you-need-to-know-to-be-successful-2014-5?IR=T

That’s all folks! xx
