Happy Birthday Mary!
Some of the members of "How Novel" at our get-together this evening
I was thinking about my sister-in-law Mary today, off celebrating her birthday at Disney World in Florida - what a great way to spend your special day! It turned out to be an evening of birthday celebrations for me as well, as my book club "How Novel" was meeting and three of us have birthdays in July. We shared the responsibility of blowing out candles on a lovely chocolate birthday cake before discussing the book Gods Behaving Badly by first-time author Marie Phillips - as a group we were impressed by the humour of the writing and originality of the plot. The only distraction from our great conversation came from the fierce thunderstorm that rocked London this evening... the lightning was so constant that you could see almost as well as if the sun were still out. Fascinating: almost as if Zeus himself was indeed "Behaving Badly" by throwing so as many bolts at us as he could while we talked about him and his Godly family!
