As crows fly to and fro over Smitonius' house on their way to the Olympic Stadium , I've been lolling about with a pile of library books . It's ages since I've had the time to gulp books down whole and I've forgotten how much fun it is !
So far , I've vicariously gone on the Oregon Trail in 1845 with Peggy Elliot's "A Small Part Of History " , used my paranormal powers to find dead bodies with Charlaine Harris's "Grave Sight" and solved a handful of other murders
And now I'm about to do some "Knitting" .
Don't be misled by the pretty but rather twee cover by the way , this is proving to be rather good . And while I'm following the instructions on the way to achieve perfect rice given to me by one of the mothers , "Don't overcook rice .When the rice begins to dance in water , it is the perfect time to put out fire and drain it " , I'm going to read a bit more before getting supper .
