I finished Penelope Janu's On the Right Track. I'm not a fan of horse racing or rural romance but I will read anything by Janu. The hero Tor is a UN diplomat investigating a 25 year old gambling crime that may have been committed by heroine Golden's deceased dad and grandad. There was an overriding sadness in this book especially with Golden's complex mum who had rejected Golden at birth leaving her to be raised by her paternal grandfather. There is a lot of love in this serious romance 4.5⭐
I have a rare night at home, alone. My neighbour is having a party and I can hear everyone clearly. Which makes me wonder how clearly my neighbour would hear every shouty mum arguments I have with my sons.
I can just imagine her thinking "oh no..there she goes again with the 'emotional labour' guilt'" 😫
There is a job being advertised for a school librarian but because it is for a private school, they have called the position "Inquiry Learning Integrator". 🙄 Also pinging @SuperWendy
Son1 accidently arranged a date at the same time as his football team is playing. He chose to go on the date. I was all "awwwww".
He came home a bit grumpy. His team won, the tivo was great, and he couldn't focus on the date because, you know, his true love is footy and he was missing out.
That poor girl. She had no chance.
I went to the movies last night and saw Gurinder Chadha's Blinded by the Light and I fell in further in love with Springsteen. A beautiful movie (even the well-delivered schmaltz) that brought tears to my eyes. I watched it w my BFs from HS (nostalgia!). In '85, she & 2 other friends asked if I would skip class to go to his hotel. I was a chickenshit & didn't go. They met him, got his autograph, chatted & didn't even get in trouble for truanting when they were broadcast on all the evening news.
Helloooooo @SandraAntonelli I am so happy you have joined us here 😊
I'm sure everyone wrote about the ending back 15 years ago but I was busy watching Thomas the Tank Engine with my then baby boys to have read any of the commentary Show more
