Starting with some sad news on this wet and grey morning.
Carol Bottright lost her battle with the brain tumour which was diagnosed in August. A very elegant lady with a certain aura about her who you could not fail to like. In turn, she exuded a great warmth towards everyone she met. She had not been playing bowls all that long but found a natural bent for the indoor game and was not averse to a bit of bantering and laughter on and off the indoor green. I know Carol’s roll up friends will miss her.
Her daughter emailed to say that Carol’s bowls had been left to the club, which was a really kind gesture. We send her daughter and family our deepest sympathies.
On a more positive note, Ray P had a successful op last week and George H is now home after a short spell in hospital but he must have enjoyed his stay so much, he’s heading off there again this morning. Get well George! We’re thinking of you.
Anybody have any recommendations for a book they’ve enjoyed that others might like too? Now the nights are drawing in, it’s a good chance to curl up with a good book, until we get back on the green.
I recently finished The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman. The writing wasn’t how I expected it. I don’t really know what I was expecting, except perhaps more longer words! Anyway, it was a good read and interesting plot with strong characters. It revolved around a residential care home, so maybe something we are looking forward to! It was a good pace and had some very good laughs in it too. I’m not giving anything away here!
4* from me.
