A substitute for sax

The roads were too icy to go to my sax lesson last night (oh boo!) so I stayed at home, and ordered two items from Amazon to cheer myself up - a Victoria Wood DVD to make me laugh and A Scattering, a collection of poems by Christopher Reid which has just won a Costa Award and is described by the Guardian as “a lucid, cogent panorama of grief and loss.”

Hmmm. An interesting combination. Comedy and bereavement. You know those recommendations that Amazon comes up with when you first log on? I wonder what they’ll suggest next time?  Six feet under?     Zuzu’s Petals?

Do follow that Victoria Wood link above – it makes me laugh out loud every time I watch it.
