Small pleasures for January

This month, I have been mainly enjoying camomile tea, mashed potatoes, the smell of hyacinths, series 4 of Lost and roast beef with Yorkshire pudding.  I unreservedly recommend them all.

(I’ve two long books posts waiting to go up, except I’ve lost the instructions for linking to Amazon in such a way that if anyone buys a book from them via me, I get cash money.  As soon as this position is rectified, I will be back with more to say.)
