Just the wrong side of 50, good grief when and how did that happen.

Loving living in the city of dreams, complete with the largest number of cinemas in the world and countless lists of books still to enjoy : what’s not to love?

How it all came about : read here.

P.S.   There is one particularly marvellous thing about having Lily as a staunch reading companion : apart from being very well read, she doesn’t get bored easily, and is always over the moon to engage in a little rambling.

April 2016 and feeling well the other side of 50, but rattling round the City of Light still and taking 12 months’ sabbatical – planning on reading with a vengeance and reporting back in a year’s time with so many more reads on the different lists ticked off…
