A birthday and a wedding
My new grandson, Olly (or Ollie) arrived safely yesterday morning and today's the royal wedding, so routine is up the spout along with any literary thoughts. A friend has recommended My Life so Far, the memoir written by filmmaker Sir Denis Foreman about his childhood in Moffat - a copy is on its way from Amazon. But before that arrives, I am going to spend a week on the water, pottering around the creeks and inlets of the Firth of Clyde. What book to take? There are books on board the converted fishing vessel or 'puffer', so maybe I will rely on pot luck. More news when I return.
