One-liner Wednesday … Scary Hormones!

“This isn’t life in the fast lane. This is life in the oncoming traffic.” – Sir Terry Pratchett.

I’m pretty sure Sir Terry wasn’t talking about being inside the mind of a menopausal woman, but this quote really resonates with me today. Just when I think I’ve got a handle on all the bloomin’ changes, another one pops up to scare the living daylights out of me!

I could do with a strong dose of Granny Weatherwax grit and bravery and a glass of Nanny Ogg’s famous Scumble (like scrumpy cider, only more deadly!)

This week’s One-liner Wednesday …. Linda G Hill. Pop over for the lowdown on taking part in this mid-week madness.

The Colour of Magic – #JusJoJan

Reading Linda’s prompt for today, colour, my mind immediately jumped to “The Colour of Magic”, Terry Pratchett’s first Discworld book. This was the first of his books to gain a place on my bookshelves. After this one, I was hooked. The more I read, the more I had to find a quiet place to read. Not to help me concentrate, but more so I didn’t disturb anyone sitting near me as I sniggered and giggled my way through the pages.

Although this particular book does not contain two of my all-time favourite female characters (Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax), it does contain Death. What a cool chap, and he rides a horse called Binky. Brilliant!

Just in case you were wondering, the colour of magic is Octarine, the eighth colour of the Discworld spectrum. According to the books, it is only visible to cats and magicians. Thank goodness for that. The description sounds revolting – a greenish purple.

I may have to dig out my copy and re-read the entire series…. right after I finish my annual read of Lord of the Rings.

Have a tremendous Tuesday everyone xx
