This #sundayreads is written for adults although Anne Fine is better known for her children & YA books. I’m enjoying it a lot; it’s all about families, and these four sisters who are close - maybe too close #sundayreading #amreading ...

We inherited Granny’s lovely chairs, but they were falling apart so I had them reupholstered. Don’t you love the new seats? ...

I’ve not encountered the author of this #sundayreading before but was captured by the blurb. It’s about a journalist who has a bit of an aberration, creates some fake news which goes viral. It’s a lovely gentle but true to life story. Recommend it. #sundayreads #amreading #amreadingfiction ...

#throwbackthursday to this day 2016 in #iceland at the #goldenfalls - for a sense of scale look at the tiny people on left hand side. Photos like this remind me how much we’ve missed travelling. #waterfall #travelphotography #travelgram ...

After our desperate struggle, between the first two lockdowns, to move out of our city flat into somewhere with a garden, I cannot believe how lucky we were, not only to have achieved this, but also to have inherited such a beautifully planted garden. Every day something new flowers. Today, one of my favourites. #iris #gardeninspiration #garden #flowersofinstagram #flowersmakemehappy ...

This #sundayreads is another one with incredible voice, although in this case, a collection of voices. Vignettes from people through time who have this mill building in common. I’m enjoying hearing their stories #amreading #sundayreading #scottishbooks ...

#throwbackthursday to June 2004, on #westhighlandway - first of our annual long distance walk expeditions. Round my waist Is a very bulky CD player holder with picket for CDs! Had burnt my own CS compilations as well. Thought I was very up with the technology #walkinguk ...

This #sundayreading is totally captivating. The author @moiramcpartlin is a friend but I’d rave about it anyway. Narrated by a young fairly illiterate lad in Fife dialect whose voice is totally engaging #sundayread #sundayreads #amreading #scottishbooks #scotsdialect #scotsvoices ...

July: What gets in the way of you doing what you want to do? I think most people have something they really, really want to do, but sadly many of them will never get around to fulfilling that desire. This seems to me particularly true if the wish is to do something...
