britmuminnz She's getting so much better and next week the children have a short week, with school closed on Monday and Tuesday, so this time at home - enjoying a slower pace - is wonderful. 2d

britmuminnz With children home poorly from school I feel so much more inspired to dabble with paints, at their request to join them. It's so nice, in a way, to slow down the pace and enjoy the silver lining of having them home unexpectedly. This is an attempt to paint the scene I enjoyed yesterday, at Worser Bay Beach. 2d

britmuminnz I'm struggling to put this book down! I hope I continue to feel the same... Only at page 167 out of 832! It's a wonder to read a book of such skill, feeling utterly absorbed in the unfolding story and characters, whilst being in awe of the visionary talent of the author to create scenes that awaken so many senses. #theluminaires #eleanorcatton 2d
  •   leoniekiwi Oh I'm so interested to hear what you think. I have struggled to get into it - I don't think I made it past page 100. I've heard so many mixed reviews. Maybe I should keep at it? 2d
  •   achildrenswriter I keep picking it up but the size - its a commitment! 2d
  •   amanda_salad I loved this book so much agree with everything you said, such a great writer 2d
  •   britmuminnz @glimmer.shine.nails early settlers on the West Coast of the South Island, Hokitika, the gold mine digging days, intrigue, murder, mystery, changing society and ways of life at the time. 2d
  •   britmuminnz @leoniekiwi I wasn't sure what I'd make of it till I started, but the intrigue of the murder and mystery have me hooked! I keep wanting to find out more - just like all the characters in the book! Meanwhile, I'm loving the portrayal of life and society in those early settler times and the conditions of life on the wet and wild West coast of the South Island. She writes very vividly and does well to weave a story with so many characters. 2d
  •   storyandrea Simply beautiful characters developed in this book - the character drive the story along and the use of language is such a treat I LOVED it. 2d
  •   leoniekiwi Ok, you've convinced me to give it more time! 2d
  •   beaivi Sounds interesting 2d

britmuminnz Coughs, colds, sore eyes & lethargy be gone! We are getting tough & fighting back. Today we ran away from the rain and found some sun, where the children could play out in the fresh air (as much as energy would allow and between spasms of coughs!). We returned home feeling our spirits lifted &, though not 'A1', this stint of illness is nearly over. Strong minds = strong bodies (& vice versa). 3d

britmuminnz No rest for me! I came home from running to be met by enthusiastic pleas to bake... 6d
