The Surrey History Centre is currently undergoing its yearly stock take so, rather than travel into Woking, I worked from home. Just like Mirinda.
I found some interesting people (one was a right bad’en) and might write about them later but, this post is basically a catch up.
Last weekend, I took the opportunity to enjoy the hygge in the library while Mirinda worked on her DBA. She sat at her Regency desk while I read in the fox wing chair. The puppies decided where they wanted to sit.
I have to say it was very comfy and cosy.
Then, on Monday, Dawn handed me a brown paper package tied up with string. At first I thought it was a neatly wrapped packet of cocaine but, upon opening it (albeit surreptitiously) I realised it was much better.
A couple of years ago, Nicktor came up with the idea of writing a book about one season of the Shots. It was to be in the style of a cricket book and would feature, not just the games but also the fans. And, after a lot of words, many cut, some retained, he has finished it.
The title refers to where we stand to watch the mighty Shots. It’s a rollicking good read if you like a football season written about in the style of a cricket book. And my copy is autographed by the author.
I wasn’t sure that he could manage it but, by halfway through the season, I knew his OCD wouldn’t let him stop.
Well done, I say, well done. And it’s available on Amazon right here.
