Song for a Sunday

And now the first Sunday Song of 2012!  But before we get to that, something I forgot to post in my Weekend Miscellany.  Katie posted the following on the SiaB Facebook page, and I drew a blank, but perhaps you can help?
In my early twenties I read a book that referred to a family as “The Gannets” because this family loved to eat, go on picnics with copious ampunts of elaborately prepared food and enjoyed every moment, including the last lick of their fingertips. The family were all rotund. I think the book was written by a British writer and I read the book in 1980ish.  It would be super fun to reconnect with it. I recently travelled to New Zealand and watched the gannets as they enthusiastically torpedoed into the water to catch their dinner – this reminded me of the book and I laughed all over again thinking of that family.So… can you help?

Now over to Richard Hawley and his simply beautiful, gentle song ‘For Your Lover, Give Some Time’.  Happy Sunday!

    I really enjoyed listening to this. It's something I probably never would have found on my own. Thanks!!!

    The Palace of Strange Girls? By Sallie Day?
