Quick Links 3rd April 2017

Each week I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read, inspired me or just sparked my interest in the previous week, with a little background and my thoughts and other things that I’ve been up to in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.


Life In General.  – Nothing much to report this week, it’s just been day to day routine. Ruby’s foot seems to be fine and there’s been no recurrence of the limping. It was Wilson’s 7th birthday, it seems that it wasn’t that long ago that he was just a pup.


Work. – I’ve had a relatively quiet week, and have been looking at all my end of year things e.g. accounts, and have been setting up my systems for next financial year. I had an email enquiry regarding a job, but it’s not something I can do so had to turn it down, although I did pass some recommendations on, so hopefully I’ve maintain the goodwill if there’s another job that I might be interested in from that organisation in the future.


Allotment. – I’m getting ready for the season ahead, picking out seeds and trying to sow as the weather allows. I managed to get some lettuce, mizzuna, rocket, mustard, chard & carrot sown. I’m hoping for another good season.


Currently Reading

I’m finished reading The Cthulhu Casebooks – Sherlock Holmes and the Shadwell Shadows by James Lovegrove [GoodReads] – it was pretty good overall, if you’re a pure Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes reader you probably won’t enjoy it, but as stories go it’s okay.

The Wind Through The Keyhole by Stephen King [GoodReads] and just starting Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King [GoodReads] the next book in the series, I’m reading for an online group.


The Last Word On Nothing Blog – The Sock Barometer – [LINK] I seem to loose a sock or two every now and again, in recent weeks it seems to be happening more frequently. I’ve actually got a pile of the things on top of my dresser all waiting for their partner to return. I’ve actually taken in some instances (mostly wellington boot socks) to matching odd pairs when one of them develops a hole too large to effectively darn.


The Week In Wildlife – In Pictures


IT Movie




 War of the Planet of the Apes Movie

    Have you not heard of the Sock Monster? It lives in the laundry basket and sometimes the washing machine 😉

  2. I’m there for the IT remake/reboot or whatever its being called. One of King’s finest books and the old TV movie with Tim Curry had its creepy moments.
