It has been a delightful August but I am glad it is September. September is my favourite month. New beginnings, new term, new season. I have bought a new diary and written important dates in it..
I have a stack books to read (see my reading list on the sidebar), there's the new Nigel Slater arriving soon and there are the three books below. I used to borrow them from the library when I was about 12 have been trying to track them down for years. A difficult task as I could remember neither titles nor author until last week when the words 'Emma's Island' popped into my head and google did the rest.
I shall continue to be fascinated, educated and amazed by the Paralympics. I am watching as much as I can*. I hear that in America they are broadcasting just 5 hours of coverage. Fortunately we have all-day everyday coverage.

I haven't forgotten that I promised apple recipes. The local apple season is just getting under way. Recipes are being pondered.
*The irony of an able-bodied person sitting on their bum all day watching paralympians push themselves to the limit is not lost on me.
