>A brief respite

>A quiet Christmas, an airing cupboard half built and not a line of dialogue attempted. Tomorrow we head North to Speke for a few days to see P’s mum. I shall take a notebook and a pen and leave behind the Internet connection – Have a Happy New Year!.

I bought Peter Ackroyd’s Shakespeare: The Biography before Christmas. It’s a fascinating read. Biographers have to make so many interventions to try and get close to the man, but still (for me) he seems to disappear between the conjectures.

I was also given a copy of Terry Eagleton’s play, Saint Oscar. I’m ashamed to say that I had never heard of it – I will read with interest.
