I borrowed several books from Charing Cross library on WordPress but this book by Alannah Moore is definitely the best.
I usually use the sticky tags shown on the right of the image but they had fallen down behind my desk so I had to use the butterflies instead. You can see just how many pages I’ve marked and I’ve already removed some from the first part of the book.
Well done Alannah Moore and her publisher ILEX press. Liked their books on blogging too.
My latest resolution – after a bit of a struggle migrating from WordPress.com to WordPress.org and a lot of help from TSOHOST – is to write posts more regularly and to include more excerpts from my memoir Woman in a White Coat
Extract from my memoir Woman in a White Coat
Thursday October 8th 1931 was not an auspicious day to be born. The mild sunny weather of September and early October had turned cold and wet. The Great Depression was at its worst, and my father had been laid off from his work as a journeyman printer. He tried to get temporary work in the docks, but he was turned away. He had to take work where he could, some of the time as a road sweeper.
My mother told me she wept for days after I was born. I wasn’t a boy who would carry on the family name and say Kadesh, the prayer for the dead, over their coffins. Who needed a third daughter?
My sisters, Hannah and Rebecca, cried when my mother brought me home from the Jewish Maternity Hospital in Whitechapel. I wasn’t the brother they had been looking forward to and I had a nasty rash on my face.
