My dear ladies and occasional gentleman what testing times we live in and when I say we I mean the peoples of the whole world.

I have only left LADYGARDEN Towers twice in six and a half months apart from dog walks in the fields. Much to the DELIGHT of these two FURRY munchkins.


Yours Homely

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, in these worrying times why not lose yourself in a BOOK.

Yours Bookily,

THE CURIOUS CURIOSITY There is a murder in the village,will Celia and her friends get to the bottom of it and will Celia survive her ordeal at Stragglers Bottom?

CELIA FINDS AN ANGEL. Strange goings on in the village see Celia ride to the rescue, she wished she had worn her double-gussets.

THE UNFURLED MOTH. Will Fred the last of the Dimmocks be the one to call time on the village pub. A family secret could ruin everything. Can Celia, Trixie & friends save it?


My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, isn’t this a lovely review?

I have just finished ‘The Curious Curiosity’.
What a great romp! I’m so glad I have met Celia Ladygarden, I love her courage, tenacity and wit.

The other characters are so vividly crafted that I feel I have personally met them all at one time or another in my life.

A clever touch with the chapter titles, it gives the story the art-deco feel of classic detective stories.

I’m looking forward to the next book ‘CELIA FINDS AN ANGEL.

Yours Happily



What do you think my dear ladies and occasional gentleman?

It’s PINK and Ronald is in a BLUE FUNK.

p.s. Serves him right for putting bleach down the toilet again without telling me! Needless to say, I’m sitting on a cushion.
p.p.s. Read more about me and Ronald and our friends in the village of St Urith With Well, all books on Amazon starting at 99p and free on Kindle Unlimited.


My dear ladies and occasional gentlemen I decided during lockdown, as I expect so many of us have, to CUT and COLOUR my hair.

I had no idea what I was doing
This is the first stage

Ronald said: I don’t like it. It doesn’t suit you. I liked the color it was.

He finished with: At least it isn’t PINK!

I am awaiting the delivery of the PINK dye.

Yours Pinkily
