Monday morning greetings to Sian and the rest of the Mondayers. A new year and a new focus for this meme, with a post about any interesting mail received during the week. I'm not sure what we're supposed to be calling these posts now so have stuck to 'Memorandum Monday' until someone points me in the right direction.
I had lots of junk mail and a few renewal letters but I won't bore you with those. I'm going to share a photo of my only piece of
interesting fun mail and let you know what I'm up to.
It's okay, you're not seeing things ...... it is a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone translated into Latin! I decided to brush up on my Latin translation skills which, considering I only know a few verbs and the odd word or so, is going to be more demanding than originally thought. When I say 'originally thought' I'm being rather generous in describing the brain power employed when deciding that this was something I wanted to do, as it's quite clear that I didn't think it through at all! Still never say never, I will give it my best shot - Google is my friend in this endeavour, I feel. I'm not completely stupid though - I have modified my ambition and will now aim to translate the first chapter!
To finish, I'll share some good news from my sister. The cancer hasn't spread, she doesn't need chemo but will have to take tablets for the next five years. Fantastic news!
