Since I was a little girl I've been making dens....and don't think I'll ever stop..........

What I'm reading at the moment.

'H' is half way through a Literature Degree in London and I'm working through her previous years reading list, if it's something I haven't already read. I started reading The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johan Von Goethe a couple of nights ago. It's semi-autobiographical and was written in 1774 in the form of a diary. It's a bit like reading an 18th century blog.

It is a bit soppy and sentimental with lots of moping about lying in long grass by a tumbling brook 'at one' with nature .......but it does get me longing for sunny summer days wishing that I could be lying in the grass listening to the bees humming.....or at least get the hammock out.....
