Thanks for visiting my blog. I look forward to reading yours – as long as it doesn’t make me feel hungry – I’m trying to lose weight …
Nice to meet you Emma, thanks for visiting me. Love the top quote. Have you visited the Woolf exhibition at the NPG yet?
I haven’t. Thank you for telling me about the Woolf exhibition. I didn’t even know it was on. Sounds fascinating. Emma.
It’s very good. I didn’t realize what a terrible childhood she’d had. The exhibition has only just started, so I think it’s on for a while yet.
Neither did I. Probably explains her battle with mental health difficulties. She would have been a good patient for Freud or Jung. Have you been to the Freud museum in North London. That is awesome too. Emma.
Great quote–reading, eating, and writing do go together, don’t they?
They sure do. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. Have a great week. Emma.
You are so very talented and have a lovely blog!
Thank you. You are so kind. It is lovely to chat to you. Have a great week. Emma.
Thanks for stopping by recently and liking my posts. Your blog is great – how can you go wrong with a black and white tuxedo cat and avocado toast!
Thank you for your kind comments. Miles is wonderful, we love him to bits. We got him from Battersea Cat’s and Dog’s home and couldn’t be without him now. Emma.

It is lovely to meet you. Emma.

It is so nice to meet you, Emma. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Certainly one must dine well, or one will feel punished. And that is never good.
Great to meet you. I am glad you liked the quote. Emma.
