Have enjoyed watching Alex Polizzi, the British hotelier who presents The Fixer on BBC 2. Tonight's programme - the last one in the series - revolved around a garden nursery centre, a family firm that was heading for liquidation. Being a gardening nut, I particularly enjoyed this last programme with cameras sweeping the six acres with some of my favourite plants in view, however, the family's business acumen had much to be desired. Things turned out ok in the end - as they always do in Alex's projects.

Peter's Self Help books also have intriguing titles: try How to Do Everything and Be Happy which was seen on BBC TV The One Show. Other titles ready to roll are linked to eating (and remaining slim) and another to do with On Line Dating - watch this space!

Our rather special Society of Women Writers and Journalists (established 119 years ago) www.swwj.co.uk has strong links with Jane Austen's home at Chawton in Hampshire. A visit to Chawton really brings Jane closer and our members often pay a vist.
Now the much-heralded Chawton House Library website is live! Visit www.chawtonhouse.org to see what all the fuss is about. The online shop allows you to buy gifts, supporter packs, and tickets to events online, whilst elements such as the ...new galleries and updated Novels. The Online area are easy to use and offer more of an insight into what the Library is currently up to. Follow Chawton on Facebook or email to give your feedback. If you like the website tell your friends.
