What I’ve Read and Watched in June

2nd July 2020

Well, June has been and gone somehow and now it’s time to share what I’ve read and watched over the month.  As always I feel as though I’ve only made a small dent in my ‘to be read’ and ‘to be watched’ list. Yet I have read some brilliant books and watched some great films […]

Howards End

3rd December 2017

I knew absolutely nothing about Howards End before the BBC mini-series began, and in all honesty I only watched it for Hayley Atwell and Matthew MacFayden. They are two of my favourite actors, and they have played some of my favourite characters including Peggy Carter and Mr Darcy. But it is the most wonderful story, […]
