A hotbed of literature

Hola. Hope you are well.

On my last blog post, I mentioned how whilst travelling back to Manchester on Megabus I was reading Chris Evans’ autobiography, ‘It’s not what you think’. On the same journey ‘Her With One Permanent Job’ was reading, ‘the Second Sex’ by Simone de Beauvoir a 800 page beast of feminism. It’s safe to say they’re quite different books, so with this in mind, what are you reading and what is your partner reading? Feel free to let me know via the comments button.  Who knew that Megabus was such a hotbed of literature.

Four minutes after getting off the aforementioned Megabus in Manchester, I bumped into someone I knew. This wouldn’t have happened in London, where sometimes the people you’ve agreed to meet up with don’t turn up, nevermind bumping into them.

A few blog posts ago, I posed the question, do you have a plug socket under a sink? Whilst in Manchester, where I was staying with my mum, I discovered she not only has no plug socket under her kitchen sink, she currently has no kitchen sink. Feel free to let me know if you don’t have a kitchen sink.

On Saturday evening, we invited Prong 2 and 2 of his housemates to our flat, for what can be described as a dinner party. I must confess that this may not have been my idea nor can I take the praise for the food that was served, although I was in charge of the music. I feel I took enough of a back seat that I can say the evening was a success, apart from one thing. As we only have 4 chairs and there was 5 of us present, we had to improvise, chair wise. This meant (one person) me having to sit on a mini step-ladder, which was not a suitable substitute. So with this in mind, what have used instead of a chair?

And Finally… For those interested I’m currently reading, ‘The Collector’ by John Fowles. (I’m only halfway through so don’t tell me how it ends! Cheers)

Til next time, stay safe!

  1. I’m sure De Beauvoir’s women’s empowerment classic has been called many things, but never a ‘beast of feminism’ !?


    Ps On the way back I read Take a Break.
