    The "I am currently reading" thread

    I picked a generic thriller from the charity table - Pursuit of Honour by Vince Flynn. I should have known what it was going to be like from the cover... Dan Brown calls it a "sizzler"! 😁. Maybe I've just not got to that bit yet. I've got The Essex Serpent to read next.

    Cuthbert bank pub / Hmo

    There was someone is the yard of the Burgoyne a few weeks ago, clearing out the dumped rubbish. Maybe they are finally starting on development. I hope so. As mentioned above, I'd rather see these buildings put to some use, they'll never be used commercially again, and the demand for flats and HMOs is there.

    Donating classroom supplies

    There seems to be a refusal at my kids school to use both sides of a piece of paper. When I asked the teachers, I was told that they like to use only one side in case they want to put that piece of work in a display! 🙄 My friend regularly buys bulk packs of exercise books for her kids to use at school, as they are "rationed" . A couple of quid from amazon, but when the school buys them from their official suppliers, they cost several times as much.

    Rereading The Lollypop Shoes by Joanne Harris, to get me ready for her new book, The Strawberry Thief. I love her writing, I don't think she's done a duff book. 😊
  5. St John's at Penistone Road, next to the dog track. They do a baby group and a toddlers one. It's really friendly and welcoming, and though it's in a church, not particularly religious (they do an Easter and Christmas party). Lots of games, singing session, snack and drink for the kids and hot drink and biscuits for the grown ups. My son is 7 now, and he still misses going!

    Kommune - anyone been?

    I've been in a couple of times, and I like the idea, but find the place a bit too noisy (as all these concrete and exposed conduit type of places are). I think that's more a reflection of my advancing years, and liking for a comfy chair, than a criticism though!

    Craft groups

    I think Nathan's tea room in Stannington do some groups, but not sure what exactly. They're on Facebook tough, so you could try them.

    Java Lounge (ex) Holme lane

    It used to be Oxfam, in the 80s/90s I think. We were saying earlier its a shame the Sports bar didn't move into that unit, much more suitable than the one under the flats. Poor residents!

    Re-reading The White Lioness by Henning Mankell. I got a yen for a bit of Wallender...

    R.I.P Magenta Devine

    I was so in awe of her style in my youth! Rough Guide was great.
  13. What's the problem with the Archer Project fill? Is it to do with it being church-y, or is there something more to it?

    Term time school holidays

    If your child has good attendance otherwise, then ask your school for authorised absence and pay the fine. Don't try and pass it off as sick, kids are rubbish at keeping schtum!

    Bruno Ganz R.I.P.

    Superb actor, in everything I've seen him in.
