This was tricky. My 23rd post was a photograph, so then I went for the post on the 23rd day which was rather rubbish considering recent relationship disasters:
I think The Fig is gone (mentioned a couple of times despite my policy of silence).
I swear, that's not all that happens around here. Anyone remember the Fig? Rebecca might - we were all on St Katharine's Dock on the same day and didn't know it. The nickname, the first on my new blog, was an acronym for his nationalities.
To think, I did the Tag to cheer us up a bit...So in another attempt, if I count only the text posts, skipping the photos, this is it:
And I also rather enjoyed his Jungian discussions of the forest as the necessary uncertainty in childhood stories and fairytales.
We even have a subtext here. I was writing about a book I'd just finished called The Child That Books Built by Francis Spufford.

That's what was on the menu one evening...Delightful came for dinner.
Hm. How about if I count the 23rd day again?
