Easter Wishes

On Good Friday I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to share a traditional family meal (Pickled Fish) with a guest. This dish is usually consumed with much relish by myself and my cousins. When it's not been possible to do so I've pushed this meal onto resistant friends who have become like family to me. Luckily they now savour it as much as I do. Sharing this meal reminded me how important the sharing of food is in many cultures and I sincerely hope you have the chance to share your Easter meal with your loved and dear ones.

Cherish each other and give thanks for time spent together. I'm certainly making the most of those around me at present.

Wishing you all a rejuvenating Easter. May your projects bear fruit, your dreams become reality and your family & friends share in all your joys.

Happy Easter


  1. Happy Easter Rae. Your pickled fish sounds intriguing - how about including a recipe in your next newsletter so that we can have a peek at what it is. xx

    1. Thank you very much Unknown. Not sure I can exactly call it a recipe since measurements are not a part of the notes on the bit of paper stuck into my notebook. Will however have words with those who understand these mathematical/scientific methods better than myself and see what we can come up with.

Reading Revelations

For several years I’ve set myself the challenge of reading a certain amount of books per year. The idea first came to me when I joined Goodreads as an author in 2016 and noticed they had a facility for logging reads and reviews as well as calculating your reads annually. I initially thought of using it as a teaching aid since I had a great deal of reluctant readers in my tutoring rota. How great it would be for them to chart their reading progress and also instil the practice of writing reviews as it was a required part of KS3 learning. Kill 2 things with wings and all that. I decided to follow the maxim: do as I do. Besides, I feel that children need role models for the good things in life as well as the bad.   Following the success of this first calculated reading venture , the Goodreads challenge became an annual thing and nothing difficult for me to accomplish since I read voraciously and had always done so. After my dad died it did however become a serious challenge. His death b
Happy New Year! Wishing you PEACE, LOVE, HAPPINESS & every good thing the world has to offer for 2020

101 Must See Films

  Take 6: The World at War The main reason I watch war films at all is because of my dad. It started with films such as The Guns of Navarone and The Day of the Jackal . The older I got the more I realised I'm more interested in films detailing Resistance action or those which have a psychological component to them. In all honesty, war will never be one of my favourite genres but there are some undeniably brilliant films in this category which simply cannot be ignored. So here goes with the ones I declare as absolutely standout. Escape to Victory - My dad loved this one too. It contains a cast of favourites, including the fabulous football skills of Pele. It's dated I grant you but not to be missed. Avoid the remake if at all possible. Good Morning Vietnam - a Robin Williams classic dealing with a war the US would rather the world forgot. The fallout from their involvement is still very much with us today. The main thing which drew me to this film was that is reminded me of
