Old pics like this brought me to tears…
My New Year’s resolution was simple: clear the loft!
My New Year’s resolution was NOT simple. To anyone who has had to decide what to do with a beloved relative’s bits and pieces, lets give each other a really big hug right now.
I had my father’s stuff, my mother’s, my grandmother’s, and even my mother’s best friend’s boxes up there, and with each one I unpacked a host of memories came tumbling out. No matter that much, if not most of the decorated plates, jugs, vases etc etc have absolutely no monetary value, they hold memories, and that makes them far more precious to me.
No wonder so many books are written about long lost finds that start a trail back in time. It’s taking me forever to go through these things. But I’ve started so I’ll finish, and if i can do it, so can you!
Good hunting, and remember you don’t want the roof falling in, so go through those long forgotten boxes and you might find the key to unlock a story too…
And now – well late, as they say oop here on the moors, but no less urgent for all that, is a super book by a good friend of mine…
When Glory Cormer’s father introduces her to ‘their’ new business partner, she’s appalled. Viking-like Rolf Johansson exudes the same alpha-intimidation that jocks used to torment her through high school. After nursing her mother the last several years, she’s trying to break out of her shell and secretly pursue a writing career, but Rolf insists she go through with the rotten deal her father struck with his brother to renovate an old chalet.
Rolf envisions this mountain as a world-class resort for elite athletes and other jet setters. As a downhill champion and owner of a world-renowned sports equipment empire, he knows what it takes to get what he wants. Nothing will stop him, especially not a hotheaded wallflower who turns the ice in his veins to lava.
Bonus Story! This book contains Glory’s novella Blessed Winter, a no-room-at-the-inn Christmas romance.
