We have been away for a few days looking after our granddaughter in Swindon. Luckily there is a lot of beautiful countryside around the city if you can negotiate the plethora of Swindon's roundabouts and the motorway.
We stayed in the beautiful village of Lacock and travelled into Swindon to do our pleasant duty. Then we took little Miss Crime Scraps to Avebury and perhaps a young geologist was born as she was fascinated by the stones in the shops.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, and Cranford were filmed in Lacock.
On my return I had to deal with some matters concerning the rock group the Honeytones. I have previously posted here about these young people with learning difficulties who get so much pleasure from their music and hopefully at last they will be able resume practice tomorrow.
I have started reading Blood of the Wicked by Leighton Gage, which is set in Brazil. This is top quality crime fiction with a stark realism and a writing style that puts you right there in the action. I had to check I had all my fingers after one gripping episode. More on this in a few days.
'The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.'
