Ah, so it is not just me then? Mr Pullman is so right.

I am still taking it slowly, usually in small bites whilst at table and thoroughly enjoying it.

Oh, are you a fellow Virgoan? I agree with you that Nigel seems to fit the way I appear to be. I, too, have taken note of the candle details and am envious of the tear of Frankincense, a perfume which I adore. In my childhood home there was a proper, cold, larder where the candles were stored since it was thought they might burn down more slowly if cold to begin with. They were not perfumed though, just the ordinary household candles kept for the times when the shilling ran out in the electricity meter. Happy days.

I am confident that it will be, Mr Pullman has never let me down yet.

I have not started my copy yet, I want to save it for Christmas week when I shall be alone more than usual. But I have started on Nigel and am enjoying it greatly. Thank you for your review, it has added a little to my expectations.

I shall stick with HP and Windows in that case... I have started reading Nigel but am putting Philip off for a while. I adore that picture and now I want a shiny cushion too.

I am sorry Lucille, I meant The Book of Dust Vol 1: La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman. It has been on pre-order since March and arrived a day or so ago.

I remember sewing the 'Crinoline Lady' fairly regularly as a child! The white-work is rather marvellous isn't it?

My copy is downstairs in the garage, I haven't been out today but I will pick it up later this evening. I shall put it next to 'Dust' in anticipation (but I also have five Barbara Pym in the offing)...

My word, that was worth waiting for! thank you so much; I wish that I could have heard the Harpsichord, believe it is my favourite instrument. (Or, Virginals?)

I like to have plants about the house too, my favourites are Pelargoniums because they are so easy to look after and are very forgiving when I forget to water them for weeks. I can't have large plants though, my flat is so tiny!

I did enjoy this post, all the boats and tractors - love it. I especially liked the Whale. Even if you saw some 'stars' and posted pictures of them, I bet I wouldn't know who they are.

I thoroughly enjoyed it too; I read it slowly to savour it. I thought that I had read Greengates, but I cannot locate it here...

A scared rabbit over the door - I wonder at the significance? I am please to see that the venerable building is being looked after and even restored but the deep pits are a trifle worrying.
