Comfort Reading, Oscar Wilde, and a Walk in the Square
Big fan of creature comforts such as bright fluffy socks, cushiony couches and creamy cappuccinos, so was thrilled by this 5* review of The Truth Club on Amazon ‘…real comfort read to be read anywhere.’ To make the review even tastier the reader suggests having a cup of tea or coffee to hand when reading the book – and ‘a packet of chocolate biscuits’. Wonderful advice!
It is raining here today – not men, like in that song, but the ordinary wet stuff – so thought I would find a nice photo on Pixabay.com that has a sort of sunny look to it. (Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay.)
Had a lovely, and sunny, stroll in Merrion Square, Dublin last Friday. It was just before a dental appointment so I was very grateful for the blossoms and spring flowers, a calming cornucopia of colours and shapes. Oscar Wilde’s former home is near one of the square’s entrances, it is one of Dublin’s many impressive Georgian buildings. Lingered outside it for a while with a slight sense of awe. Had his feet ascended those same stone steps?
I heard this joke on The Pat Kenny Show some weeks ago and it gave me a chuckle:
“I’ve just invented a word.”
“What is it?”
