Three friends, have recently taken me to task for not keeping up with my blog the last time I posted was April 2008, I'm ashemed to say. Truth be told, I was getting fed up with blogs. There are so many of them and what to say that is even a little bit different ? And some are so good they made me feel defeated. (My favourite is Liz Fenwick's – And who would be interested? What to write about? Well that's a question that implies that nothing has happened. And that's not true. Since I last wrote I have: Been sacked by my publishers. Interviewed by Jeremy Paxman for new series on the Victorians. Became a mentor to a group of writers. Did crits of other's manuscripts. Went to France for a holiday in our house in the Auvergne. Decided to sell house in France. Returned to cottage to find it flooded. Moved into son's house. Taught a course in Italy. Joined a new Parkinson's Forum: Decided not to sell house in France. Enjoyed the best Christmas ever. Went to a school to talk about the WWll – huge fun. Dropped from the Paxman series. Began to give talks about my life. 15th grandchild born – Jemima, Now looking forward, this month,to moving back to cottage after over six months – took all that time to be dried out and restored. I seem to be busier than ever. I'll let you know about the above, in more detail, bit by bit. Thank you Lois, Meg and Karen for waking me up - which they did in the nicest possible way.

  1. For the 2nd time I'm reading your 1992 novel "Advances" and it's one of those books that lets one do only what I call the minimum service of the rest of the things one should do...unputdownable, yes ;)
    How things have changed from when there were no mobile phones or at least not everyone had them I often think.
    Good luck to you and a hug,
