What am I reading?
Beside my bed for pre-sleep reading is Fiona's Kidman's second part of her autobiography - Beside the Dark Pool. I very rarely read autobiographies - it always seems to me that one must think a lot of oneself to want to write all about it. I am not sure about this book - while I am enjoying the historical side - Fiona Kidman is about 10 years older than me so I have followed through her writings since The Breed of Women - I was someone who coasted along behind Margaret Drabble and she is sort of the kiwi equivalent. However here I think she has a few scores to settle and we are privvy to them and I am not sure I really care.
It might seem that I have been very non creative but I am working hard on the Walnut Ink and Moonglow booklets and the weather is dreadful today - wet and very windy. I slunk off to have my hair refuchsied.
