I started out writing this determined not to mention the

J-word, but just look at my title. I can’t talk frightening without using the J word because is there anything more scary than an evil Jellyfish? No! Certainly not on planet Lewis. They top my list of terror, esp...

I’m one of life’s giver-uppers, a-path-of-least-resistance person. It’s always easier to walk up the hill, instead of run it, make a cup of coffee instead of write something. When I was being built, along with patience they forgot to fit the perseverance function.

So, w...

(Pembrokeshire's 'Top of the World' as opposed to Hampshire's)

It’s half-term and not a standard one, heaven sent heat: real, bright blue sunshiny sun has come to stay-cation in Pembrokeshire and the county is transformed. If someone rocked up now with a years pass to P...

(This is what the top of the world looks like)

I’m on my eighth chocolate digestive and still nothing. I’ve drunk so much tea I can hear my tummy sloshing each time I reach for another biscuit. I’ve checked the weather, read the headlines, opened Facebook, by mistake of...

Today is a momentous day, one to jot down in the old diary and shed a tear over in a few decades time. It was the last, and I do mean the very very last, ‘buggy run’. (Buggy run – small child, impossible to steer, three wheeled pushchair, trainers and a loud enough pla...

Yet another soggy Sunday. The sun has done a disappearing act – and I’m beginning to forget what blue sky looks like. It’s been so wet our toes are webbing. It’s that spot in the afternoon when there’s just enough light left for a stomp up the lane, but not quite enoug...

It's raining – not proper rain, but wet-stick-to-you-fuzz that gets right through to your pants in about ten seconds flat.

So, the options are; stay put, don't get dressed, binge-listen to the Archers omnibus (yes please, excellent choice – be a love and pop the kettle...

Could anyone have failed to miss the moving, harrowing news coverage of the Remembrance of The Battle of Passchendaele? Today, July 31st, marks one hundred years since the start of one of WW1 bloodiest battles. The numbers are mind blowing; half-a-million men lost thei...

I don’t know about you but this is a first for me, I’ve never had a book to launch before!

Nobody could be more amazed than me, to have a novel launched today, well apart from, perhaps, Mrs Holliwell who’s unenviable task it was, every Tuesday and Thursday morning to dr...
