Friday 56: Vol. 8

The Friday 56 is a blog hop by Freda’s Voice and the rules are simple:

  • Turn to the nearest book.
  • Open it on page 56.
  • Post a sentence or two.
  • Join the linky.
  • Go crazy on the linky.

An orange light bounces across my screen, and before he says the word, I know he’s going to ask for a book right in the middle of aisle two. It’s going to be – “Prokhorov,” Imbert wheezes, “Prokhorov must be next.” Halfway up the ladder, I feel dizzy. What’s going on? No daredevil maneuvers this time; it’s all I can do to keep my balance as I pull slim, black-bound PROKHOROV off the shelf.

After The Bloggers’ Bash Special

The lovely Hugh, whom I met at the Blogger Bash in London, posted this list of all the bloggers, plus pictures and a link to a video of all of us! Check it out!

Hugh's Views & News  

It’s been a whole week since the first Annual Bloggers’ Bash and the first Annual Bloggers’ Bash Awards were held in London.  However, the day itself is still very much on my mind.


If we were having coffee I’d be telling you about the Bloggers’ Bash.  Haven’t seen the video yet of all the bloggers who attended, introducing themselves? Then click here and meet the group.

I was very nervous when the day finally arrived.  I’d only ever spoken to Sacha, Ali and Geoff via Google Meet Ups.  However, I received the biggest hugs I’d ever received from people I’d never met before and Geoff presented me with a lovely bunch of sweet peas from his garden.  By the time we sat down and were eating breakfast you could have sworn we’d all known each other for years.
