I've just reviewed Burnt Paper Sky over here. It's a really good read, which was published last year and I borrowed from the library.
I'm enjoying the warmer weather and the sunshine, although the accompanying tree-pollen related hay fever is tedious. The washing is blowing on the line and I will have to get it in shortly because it is, I suspect, barbecue time.
It is hard to believe that a week ago we were just back from a very chilly, snowy Lake District, where I had spent a few lovely days in Grasmere with some very special creative friends. We are all determined to keep the creative vibe going on, but returning to the world of daily life and domestic routine makes that challenging.
