This little blog is now six months old - give or take a few hours, a couple of expletives and some typos. Sitting up and rolling about a bit, grumpy with teething problems and probably needing to be winded; my little blog is on it's way to becoming a toddler.
No-one is more surprised than me that it's just notched up 8,000 page views, although many may have stumbled on it whilst looking for something else! I already know that somebody landed on it while they were looking for a Brighton teashop; I love teashops and Brighton, so this seems quite reasonable to me.
I hope some of you who didn't really intend to be here will come back. I do believe it does what it says on the tin: I am a slightly quirky Catholic woman living by the sea who scribbles poems, loves treacle tart and sometimes gets quite ratty about a variety of things. Your comments, stories and humour are also very welcome.
There are several stunning versions of the traditional song "The Water is Wide" and I thought it was time to share another. The performance in celebration of Pete Seeger's 90th birthday, at Madison Square Garden in 2007, featured the sublime Emmylou Harris, Teddy Thompson, Martha and Rufus Wainwright, The McGarrigle Sisters and James Taylor...
