I just made this one up, I dont know why, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg need to relax sometimes too I think, although from what I understand Nanny can get a bit too relaxed Granny is off borrowing, Nanny is drinking and Greebo is hunting. The tree is odd, I just like to see life growing on dead things as if nature is trying to tell us something.
I hadn't reread the Tiffany books since I Shall Wear Midnight came out, so I had got used to teenage Tiffany - so it was great to reread the Wee Free Men and rediscover wee nine-year-old Tiff with her oversized clothes, her frying pan and her attitude.
I also came out of it loving this book more than ever - the Feegles are on top form, the dream sequences are wonderfully unreal and Tiffany's world is so amazingly real, especially the character of Granny Aching whose loss resonates throughout. (I had a similar relationship to my own paternal grandmother, so I relate, even though mine wasn't a witch, of course).
If you go to the Spring Fling in Wincanton this weekend, you will hopefully be able to purchase this piece! I can't make it this year so I'm counting on the speed of the postal service to convey it in time for the Great Charity Auction. Fedecks, I am counting on you!
Yesterday at night I was in Tumblr. Procrastinating, yes. And I read that someone imagined Sam Vimes, from the Discworld series, as the british actor Stephen Dillane (Stannis!!! Baratheon!!!)
Vimes is the Commander of the City Watch, the police force of the Discworld's largest city, Ankh-Morpork. He's been my favorite character of this series since I read the book Guards! Guards! years ago.
One of the few rather unpleasant knock-on effects of his marriage was his bacon scandwich turning into a salad-and-tomatoe sandwich with a hint of bacon. Plus that this tiny bit of beef was in constant danger of...dragons!
