846 – Hampshire History

It has been a very cold few days. Several times the cold haas been below zero. The frosts, and this mornings frost, have been very heavy. One thing I was concerned about was giving our outside tap some frost protection. Luckily I found the frost cover in the garden shed as we couldn’t find any new ones in town. I was also concerned about the hose, but that is under cover now.

I am on the last few pages of the History of Hampshire. The reading of it had been delayed because of the arrival of the monthly round of magazines. All finished now apart from a couple of pages which I can finish off slow time.

I have three days worth of weather stats, the graphs are building so Ian happy with that, they are also being recorded at the back of next years journal. The journal is actually an A5 week per page diary. I wonder how long I will use that before I decide I am not happy with it. We’ll have to wait and see.

I am on the last few pages of A History of Hampshire. This chapter is covering Local Government in Hampshire from 1066 to 1976. That the author can do that in about 10 pages speaks volumes about the amount of history there is here. I am of course down playing this. Much more went on than is written about in this book. For example there have been only two very brief mentions of Gosport and no mentions at all of Gosport’s role in the civil war or of Palmerstons Follies.

As I started reading the history I think I speculated that Hampshire’s history wouldn’t be very exciting. I think that has been born out. I have a book on order – the history of Dorset. If the focus is right, I expect it to be an order of magnitude more exciting.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
