It's been a quiet week. There's little to report. I've been doing some reading. Mainly 'How to write nonfiction : Turn your knowledge into words' by Joanna Penn. It's a good book, written in plain English without jargon.

I ordered a book that I used to have, but must have given away. 'Full Disclosure' by Andrew Neil. I managed to get a used copy on amazon.co.uk for only £3.50 and it's a hefty book. I want to read and study a non-fiction book that I know I can cope with!

I haven't been too well and my legs have been very painful. On the positive side, I can now walk around the flat, patio, and communal garden without a stick. I could manage it when I'm out and about, but don't want to risk it just yet. Just to be on the safe side - I don't want to fall over again!

I have to go for my annual diabetic check-up in a couple of weeks.
