Down on the allotment for the first time this year and resumed listening to The Help. Abline is now helping to write the story of coloured people during difficult social times. It makes me feel very apprehensive about what might happen to her if anyone finds out. I also think that people like her are very brave and I question whether I could have been so brave, I doubt it.
Now up to the point where things might begin to go wrong. In her haste to get home and not incur her mothers wrath Skeeter has forgotten her bag containing all the notes from her interviews. The setting up of this was a bit predictable.
Skeeter now has a love interest.
Many of the arguments put forward by some of the dreadful people for keeping coloured people down are very familiar. ~This fills me with disappointment ~ I realise that things have n’t really altered and similar reasons are used to keep people down.
Most of allotment frozen but managed to dig in a small area. Frozen feet and squishy mud shortened the visit.
