Foggy morning here, primed and ready to go already. Hope the weekend was good for all bloggers. I spent most of it in a ditch. Or under a bridge. Maybe wading through marshland or staring up at a tree with a gale and driving rain doing their best to knock me over. This, in case you hadn't realised, is geogaching. Child 3 and I were to be found tramping around the Suffolk countryside, phone in hand, looking for caches buried/stuck/hidden in trees/telegraph poles/benches. I knew nothing of this world but can report that I suspect I'll be spending quite a few more murky, dank weekends hunting for tiny logbooks to sign. Adding to the pleasure was the company of Nigel Barden and clan providing extra eyes and hands. And the promise of a well chosen beer and wine selection to come.
So today we have the book club choice of 'Citadel' by Kate Mosse, another terrific yarn based in her beloved Carcassonne in south west France. It's set mainly in world war 2 with an all-female resistance group, but uses this time-slip idea again with some of the book set in AD 342. There's a chapter here while you're with us so you can see what she has done. Kate will be live from 6 and the web chat from 6.30.
And oldies please for SAINTS. The pope announced 7 new ones yesterday so your musical suggestions welcome.
Have a straightforward and hassle free Monday, see you after 5.
