Beautiful Padstow

We’ve just got home from our annual holiday to my absolute favourite place – Padstow in Cornwall. We’ve been there every single year since my son was born in 2001, as well as three times before that. We go on holiday other places too, but Padstow is just what we do every year. We never get bored of it. It feels like coming home.

Tempting Fate by Jane Green

It’s been years since I gave up chick-lit. I much prefer thrillers or modern literature. But I was always a Jane Green fan back in the day. Her chick-lit has always been a cut above the rest. I like the fact that her characters have grown as she has – from women in their 20s looking for love (Straight Talking and Jemima J) through to women having their first babies (Babyville) to women in their 40s whose kids are almost...
