Truthful Tuesday: August 17th, 2021

Welcome to my response to Frank’s Truthful Tuesday today when his question is

What impact, if any, has the pandemic, and specifically last year’s lock-down had on your reading habits?

There was a time when I was an avid reader, getting through between 2 and 5 paperbacks a week. I loved James Herbert, Stephen King, John Saul, and Dean Koontz, then added David Baldacci, Matthew Reilly, Erica Spindler, Tess Gerritsen, Sandra Brown, Judith McNaught, Erica James, Nora Roberts and until Tom Cruise ruined the character, Lee Child to my groaning book shelves.

I don’t read much now, and this actually has nothing to do with Covid. I have books on the shelf purchased two Christmases ago that I haven’t opened, and one of the last ones I read will be finding its way to the charity shop when we are next passing.
To be honest, the pandemic hasn’t really changed much in my entertainment or ‘me’ time.
The days go by pretty quickly as we always seem to be doing something but I get a lot of pleasure from posting on my blog and reading those I follow.
We still enjoy a leisurely walk, though both of us miss Maggie so very much as we used to go out a lot more when she was with us. It’s hard to believe it’s 9 months since we lost her.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Time marches on, regardless of how much we wish it wouldn’t.
    I feel your pain, old friend.

    I’m sorry you miss her so much Di! Its terribly hard when you had a routine and having a dog is good for that. I love books. And reading and I read a lot more now thanks to covid. xx
