The Princess Matilda Comes Home by Shane Spall
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Shane Spall is not just the beloved wife of Timothy Spall the brilliant British actor. She is also one of my favourite author's. Why? Well, when I read her books, ... the first was The Voyages of Princess Matilda, and now the sequel The Princess Matilda Comes Home, I find myself reading them ever so slowly. So slowly that it can take me three or four weeks to get to the last chapter. The reason being, that I never want to reach the end of her delicious descriptions of their adventures together on their bespoke barge The Princess Matilda.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (DVD + Digital Copy&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Judi Dench

This film has all of my favourite actors. Maggie Smith, Bill Nighey, Tom Wilkinson, Celia Imrey, the fabulous Dame Judy Dench and some that I am not so familiar with.
They are all totally wonderful.
The film is a joy, it has to be in my top three of films to take to a desert island.
Don't miss it, you will be the poorer for it.
Even the men in our family all loved it.
Nurse on Call: The True Story of a 1950's District&hellip by Edith Cotterill

I am a child both of the fifties and of the Midlands, so this book was right up my alley!
The District Nurse was a familiar sight on the streets in those days, uniformed & usually pushing a big black bicycle with a basket up front to hold the black bag.
Nurse Edith Cotterill's memories of those days brought my own childhood flooding back and rarely have I laughed out loud all from the first to last page of a book.
My mother borrowed it and she couldn't put it down. It has since done the rounds of our family and friends.
Anyone aged over fifty will surely love this book.
