Listening to - A Paris Affair by Anton du Beke -
In the darkest days of war, a stranger will change everything.Paris, 1926. A young dancer Ray Cohen arrives from London to compete at the Exhibition Paris. He is led astray by Hugo, a charismatic dancer born of the streets, who introduces him to the city's nightlife and a dazzling stranger called Hannah Lindt.
London, 1941. With the heroic Raymond de Guise away fighting in North Africa, his beloved wife Nancy must balance her new position - as Head of Housekeeping at the Buckingham Hotel - with life as a new mother to their child. As the war rages on, a charismatic stranger from Raymond's past arrives at Nancy's doorstep, asking for work at the Buckingham Hotel.
As dark secrets rise to the surface, the very heart of the Buckingham Hotel is under threat. Will tragedy strike?
Watching - We have finished The Long Shadow on ITV, all about Peter Sutcliffe. The Yorkshire ripper. Hubby was shocked when he realised it was so close to home for him, as he worked in Sheffield at the time. I watched The Reckoning on BBC (hubby didn't want to watch it). All about Jimmy Saville, who we thought was brilliant when we were kids but didn't realise how deranged he was. Just disgusting, and he didn't see he was doing anything wrong!!
Wondering - How our fur boys have any fur left, when most of it is on the kitchen floor!!
Wearing - Jumper and jeans when not at work and jumpers and trousers/skirts when at work!! Pretty standard for me, this time of year.
Booking - The Great Yorkshire show is all booked. Airbnb and time off work. I just need to update our membership.- I am continuing with my Sophie's Universe blanket. She's going to be a weighty one when she's finished. I've only done the middle section and she already weighs a ton.
