Too hot to do any work today so I have been stretched out in the shade of the hazelnut tree with my Kindle. I’m currently reading The Girl in the Spider’s Web, a sequel to Stieg Larsson’s famous trilogy. Written by David Lagercrantz (Larsson died in 2004) the book is a respectful homage to the original books. My only criticism is that there are too many characters and I keep forgetting who’s who. And I can’t pronounce the Swedish names.
Such a warm day, bees buzzing away on the lavender bushes, I close my eyes and have a doze. I feel very relaxed today as Paul is in charge of supper, he is cooking paella tonight.
Indoors in the cool now and watching the Tour de France. Julian Alaphilippe has gone missing? How can you go missing unless you go over the edge of the mountain. No, he’s back, a mechanical problem. He’s the guy that got blown off his bike by a crosswind during the time trial. Dangerous stuff this cycling lark.
