Before I go into my post, I would just like to say I have missed you all.
I came back (in my last post) and then my Dad needed me, because his nursing home had begun to neglect him badly, which meant a lot of phone calls and travelling and anxiety and heartache. I also got migraines from all the tension and so had to stay away from the computer til today. Now my father has finally moved a few miles away from me to a new home, but he's extremely frail and so for however long we have together, I shall do my best to make him know how loved and special he is to me.
My latest read is Brick Lane by Monica Ali and I just had to share these excellent showing excerpts:
1. Razia lit up and light grey trails from her nose mingled with the fibrous tendrils of her hair.
You can just see it can't you?
2. "Yes, then he wants a Year Off!" She spoke the words as if they were two turds dangling from the end of a stick.
Now doesn't that capture the mood and the tone of the words well?
