I couldn’t help but take a peek at which page my husband is up to reading my novel ‘1962’ (Available from Amazon). Chapter 14 about Ernest’s Green Viking (a type of bicycle):
The month of September clings to its daylight hours; challenging folk to make the most of the month. Grownups are usually preoccupied with preparations for winter, because ‘before you know it, Christmas will be here’. However, Christopher Cunliffe and Ernest Bradshaw were enjoying the last few evenings that included daylight. Monday had involved his mother being in an even worse mood when she got home, Ernest had heard her trying to sing Edith Piaf songs to Uncle Billy, this usually happens when she needs to ‘let off steam’. It is a good job Uncle Billy cannot hear her.
