Book Club - The Last Mughal

OK, call me a philistine - but I'd much rather sit and read a Harry Potter or a Jackie Collins. This month we should have read The Last Mughal by William Dalrymple - for those with some interest in India it was OK... but I thought it was too hard-going and I lost the will to live after page 3.

I did read the Woman in the Fifth by Douglas Kennedy in super fast time and adored it. I've just started Angels & Demons by Dan - Da Vinci Code - Brown... it's quite good too.

Our next book club book is 100 Years in Solitude
.... apparently this Gabriel chap writes good stories!..... Anyway, the book club is on holiday until the end of August now.

Can anybody tell I've just found the code again for my Amazon Associates membership?

After a fab lunch of rump steak with Roquefort sauce, followed by soup a la peche with vanilla ice cream we wind our way home via the Poterie de la Madeleine which is perhaps the most wonderful shop in the Gard. Not just those huge Anduze pots you find outside every mairie in the South of France, but beautiful oven to tableware, glasses and knick knacks.

Sorry, sorry, sorry, we did have pizza tonight as the chicken I'd bought for the fajitas was one day past it's eat by date.

'A' today has been to Nimes, Montpellier, Marsillargues and then Montpellier again and he's put in his dossier for his bilan de competance... for a start in September. On the downside, he lost Alicia's purple dummy... disaster. (OK I admit it, I've lost two of her dummies before now.)
