Because I initially joined twitter so I could post updates when I went up to Rutland Water and took part in my first regatta (the sailability multiclass).  And whilst I was there I was also reading The Time Traveller’s Wife.  A bit whilst the others were on the water and I wasn’t because it was too much for me – although mostly at that point I was watching and chatting to others – but mostly in the evenings in that hotel room.

From what I recall was a very good book. But that’s why it’s weird because I’ve never reread it – I’ve not wanted to.  I’m not even sure I’ve still got the book.  And I’ve not seen the film.  It remains a good book with some brilliant portrayals of disability yet I’d not thought about it in forever until I saw that little line on my twitter profile and immediately remembered that I was reading The Time Traveller’s Wife that weekend when I first went to a regatta and I first joined twitter.
