Thursday June 1st: Setting the scene.

Today is a rare day at work for me, an early finish with no teaching work planned this evening. I have the possibility of Women’s Institute, which I should go to since I missed last month’s, or an event to celebrate 50 years of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, but neither are screaming at me and it depends when I get home on whether … Continue reading Thursday June 1st: Setting the scene.

I am looking out over June, and imagining the possibilities. Who’s with me?

It’s the last day of May… who knew that time moves faster the older you get? Well, I’d begun to suspect this when six weeks as a teacher never felt the same as six weeks as a child. Far too short a summer holiday! And tomorrow is June, the month that represents the zenith of the Sun’s power in the Northern hemisphere.

Jane no longer writes her blog, due to reasons she’ll explain below, but it’s still there in … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Jane Goble of Posy

Spring Hygge is in full bloom!

And Easter is just around the corner, with its promise of eggs and bunnies. I know some schools have already broken up, but my teenagers don’t break for the Easter Holidays until Friday, so this week is the week I’ve begun … Continue reading Spring Hygge is in full bloom!

Starting next week on HTHTBW… the 50 Ways to Hygge the British Way Book Tour!!

It is a strange fact that as a Kindle author you don’t get a publisher and a publicist to take care of book sales for you. Nobody arranges the book tour, or blog tour, or any tour, nobody writes enthusiastic press releases, nobody takes charge of sending out review copies to the Big Names of whatever subject you’ve written about. It’s just not included. That … Continue reading Starting next week on HTHTBW… the 50 Ways to Hygge the British Way Book Tour!!
