From e to You

From E to You

by Chris d'Lacy [Barn Owl Books]
Price: £291.99 -

by Chris d’Lacey and Linda Newberry

This is a good book – engrossing from the start and I ended up doing nothing but reading (when really I should have been writing!) the whole day till I’d finished it.

Annabelle and Guy begin e-mailing each other as suggested by their parents. The book is actually told entirely in e-mails; d’lacy writing Annabelle’s part and Newberry going Guy’s. I’ve seen this format a few times now, but it was probably original when it was written, and it works really well for this book.

The story deals with the death of Guy’s father impressively, without making a big soppy issue of it, but allowing plenty of empathy for the character. A recommended read for anyone who’s lost a relative as I’m sure the story will help a bit, just like it did for Guy.

But the reason why I had to read from start to finish in one day is the mystery and suspense involving the past and their parents. I had to find out exactly what was going on. The end tied it all up nicely, but it was a bit of a let down after all that excitement.

Hopefully this book will also give younger readers a bit of an insight into complicated adult relationships and realise that even Mums and Dads aren’t perfect! The highs and lows of Annabelle’s and Guy’s relationship was good as well.

Overall it was a lovely lighthearted romantic story and fun to read. (Actually the language, espcially of Annabelle, was similar to Georgia Nicolson’s confessions in the Louise Rennison novels.)

Anti-reflective coating on your glasses – is it worth it?
October 9, 2016
Whenever I’m recording a You Tube video in my work-room, all I seem to do is spin round in circles trying not to have massive white rectangles on my glasses. They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
Full Review of Glastonbury Festival 2016
June 29, 2016
This year will be known for two things: the referendum and the mud. I hardly saw an act that didn’t mention both of those things. I’m sure you will have heard about both from plenty of other people, so I’m not going to dwell on either. This is going to be one long post about the entire five days, so fetch yourself a mug of hot chocolate and if you don’t quite make it all the way through, just leave the tab open and come back again later! ….
