A Letter To My Thirty Something Self

#AmWriting #FabulouForties

Dear My Thirty Something Self I’m sorry Thirty Something Self but I found this today while having a sort out. After two pages of you rattling on about how you are dreading being in your forties I found myself rolling my eyes and shaking my head in disapproval. You wrote an entire NOTEBOOK about how […]

My […]

#BookReview Her Mother’s Secret @JanBaynham #Bookish

#BookReview

This is one of those books which you can definitely see being turned into a much loved BBC dramatisation. It would make great viewing as there’s something for everyone in it; romance, mystery, drama and a bit of a thriller. I’m thinking a six part series and I’m undecided which role I want to be […]
