Bran tub

Today is a lucky dip.

For those of you who like to see photos of my grandchildren, here is my latest favourite one of Lux -


and Cece -


For those of you who are discouraged writers, here’s some encouragement.

And for those of you who like questions…

I realised yesterday that the books that move me to tears are amongst my favourites. I mentioned The Secret Garden, but there’s also The Age of Innocence, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Homestead. Tell me - which books have moved you?

Vasily Grossman's Life and Fate brought tears to my eye last year.

The Fountain Overflows by Rebecca West is for me one of those "touch the heart" books is Nella Last's War and best of all: The Scent of Water by Elizabeth Goudge

Ooh thanks, Chrissie and Marmee. I will check out these titles .

Just catching up, will have to add some of these titles to my to read list, which is getting long indeed! I am in a bit of an author crush with Daniel Woodrell at the moment, Winter's Bone being my favourite so far. Rather bleak and cruel stories, but somehow I find them uplifting anyway.

If you find them uplifting, Megan, that's good. I am a very sensitive soul and can't take bleak fiction, though I have just started reading Stoner. We'll see how far I get.
