It’s a quick one tonight as my husband has finished for the holidays, and we’re off out for a lovely meal (well, I hope it’s a lovely meal), and I probably won’t feel like blogging when I get back. This is where the scheduling comes in very handy. Now for ‘Branwell Bronte’s Barbers Tale’ byContinue reading “Dear Reader I Read it…Well I’ve started it ‘Branwell Bronte’s Barber’s Tale’ by Chris Firth”

Time and Tide and Other Old Washing Powders that make Life easier but no Slower
Not much of a post today, I’m afraid, just been very busy indeed. Found a cousin I haven’t seen for about 40 years so we have a lot to catch up on! There’s not enough hours in the day sometimes – yet other times,it seems to hang heavily. I have loads to do in theContinue reading “Time and Tide and Other Old Washing Powders that make Life easier but no Slower”
What I’m Reading at the moment; ‘Branwell Bronte’s Barber’s Tale’ by Chris Firth
I am in that inbetweeny period where I have no new books to read (sob) so I’m having to rely on old ones: ones I have read years ago, like ‘Samuel Pepys’ Diary’. Occasionally I come across a book I’ve bought and for some reason or other, haven’t got round to reading. Well, such an occurenceContinue reading “What I’m Reading at the moment; ‘Branwell Bronte’s Barber’s Tale’ by Chris Firth”
Black Sheep Branwell: It wasn’t ALL Rock and Roll…
It’s Sunday, so it’s just a quick post again. Whilst in Haworth I visited Branwell Bronte’s exhibition. It’s a small one, but it at least affords us a more rounded picture of Patrick Bronte’s tragic son. There were small water colours, poems both in tiny form and a more ordinary format. Small plays and evenContinue reading “Black Sheep Branwell: It wasn’t ALL Rock and Roll…”
Sex, Drugs and Literature: Branwell Bronte Gets his Place in the Sun at Last!
Great! Finally an exhibition that focuses on Branwell Bronte! Poor old Branwell, the eternal Black Sheep of the Bronte family. I have always felt that he has been much maligned, not helped by himself I may add. This article puts it so succinctly when it points out the expectations and burden placed on the onlyContinue reading “Sex, Drugs and Literature: Branwell Bronte Gets his Place in the Sun at Last!”
‘Daphne’ by Justine Picardie: The Infernal World of the Lost Boy
I have finished reading this book at last. It isn’t a particularly lengthy book, neither was it tedious. The reason it has taken me so long to read is that I was savouring every page! That’s quite unusual for me, I like to gallop through a book when I’m really enjoying it – and IContinue reading “‘Daphne’ by Justine Picardie: The Infernal World of the Lost Boy”
Where am I?
Just a quick post for tonight. Where does the time go? It’s a good job I schedule these posts: I always try to be one in front. There are a LOT of artists birthdays coming up this month, and although I keep saying it, I really MUST do some more on my altered book! IContinue reading “Where am I?”
York Break: Haworth still Wuthering after all these years
On the way back from our York break, we called in at Haworth, the Yorkshire village famous for it’s association with the Bronte’s. There was a time when we used to go once or twice a year, but this was the first time we had been in 3 years. Nothing had changed. Perhaps a fewContinue reading “York Break: Haworth still Wuthering after all these years”
