A great book and a large mug of black coffee - my favourite way of spending a sunny Sunday afternoon.
I have just discovered Muriel Spark and devoured four of her books in the last five days.
I've read, Memento Mori, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, The Driver's Seat and a collection of short stories.
How wonderful to discover there are 19 novels, more short stories and poems to go.
It is the first time I have enjoyed reading such an obtrusive narrator.
Memento Mori was written in the 1950s but it is still so fresh and original.
I am halfway through her last book, The Finishing School, which was published in 2004.
If you like quirky, fresh and funny with a dark side then I urge you to read one of her novels.
Most of them are just over 100 pages and it is perfectly possible to read one in a sitting.
Now, excuse me I just need to get to the end of this next chapter before it is time to iron my son's school uniform.
