The Date is Set for My Retirement

  I’ve been doing a lot of pondering over the weekend, and as a result, the date has been set, and I am going to retire on 1st May 2019. I’ve decided finally to hang up my Woolly Pedlar coat  to concentrate on my writing and Nanny duties. I had hoped to carry on with […]

A New Chapter Begins for The Woolly Pedlar

A new chapter begins for The Woolly Pedlar, as I become a part-time upcycler and textile designer, part-time childminder, and part-time student of Creative Writing.

I had arranged to meet Vanessa, to hand over the ‘waterfall shawl’ I’d […]

The Beast from the East Take Two – More Snow

More snow! It would appear we are in the grips of ‘The Beast from the East Two’. Driving snow and strong winds are making themselves known for the second time this month. This month being March. We are all in need of Spring. My thoughts are with two groups of people today. The homeless and […]
