This morning I posted https://derrickjknight.com/2022/01/15/a-knights-tale-92-violence/
After lunch I read more of “Great Expectations” and scanned more of Charles Keeping’s inimitable illustrations.
‘It is a most miserable thing to be ashamed of home’
‘Joe and Orlick went at one another, like two giants’
‘Biddy turned her face suddenly towards mine’
‘Mr Trabb’s boy was the most audacious boy in all that countryside’
Our dinner this evening consisted of well-cooked roast beef, potatoes, and parsnips; tender cabbage; crunchy carrots, crisp Yorkshire pudding; and meaty gravy, with which Jackie drank Carlsberg and I finished the Faugères.
