The Carbon Copy and I are off on a road trip – no, wait, that needs capital letters – a Road Trip next week. We’re Youth Hostelling through Devon and Cornwall, enjoying the great outdoors and also enjoying driving when the great outdoors proves too damp. It’s my first big driving expedition, and Our Vicar’s Wife has prophesied death at every corner – but hopefully I’ll be back to see you by the end of June.
But, if Blogger manages to overcome my natural Luddite-ness (or, potentially, Luddism), it will feel like I didn’t go. I have a few book reviews to write this week, and I’m going to try and set up the blog so that it releases posts as intervals during the week. Chances are it won’t work, but you never know, I might surprise myself.
So where are we going? Beer (which neither us of drink), River Dart, Okehampton, and Golant (which is Daphne du Maurier country). I have a pile of books to take with me, but no camera to show them to you. I’ll give you a picture when I get back, and let you know that the first one off the pile is Parents and Children by Ivy Compton-Burnett.
Here goes on setting up the rest of the posts for this week…
