Elliott's wild cat family - the kittens' eyes are now open. Aren't they gorgeous? Mum looks so relaxed and rather proud of her little brood! These are all feral, by the way.
Many thanks for so many super comments and emails - obviously you are feline fanciers.

Lots of fun and a chance to learn some almost forgotten handicrafts. Loved James and Sheila Rushbrook, supersonic Oregon Cottage bee-keepers, the Mayflower Morrismen, Mrs A of the Essex Badger Protection Group and, of course, those experts in wildlife, members of the Norsey Wood Society.

I enjoyed Adrienne's cast of colourful characters, within her fast moving, believable storyline set in the newspaper world.
Yes, a good read! Adrienne is Editor of 'RomanceMatters:romanticnovelistsassociation.org

The Hollow Heart is Adrienne's debut novel and I am now following her @adrienneauthor. Expect she has a website, too, and as soon as I tie up current work, will do some shadowing. Still not primarily a fan of romantic tales, this one was so absorbing, fast moving, couldn't put it down.

|Ros Green and Nick Field at Brentwood studio|
Lots of action yesterday with our monthly BOOK CLUB programme at Brentwood's Phoenix 98fm studio. Michelle Ward is our usual presenter on Eat My Brunch, the morning show, but yesterday Nick Field was our host. We chatted about the literary side of Brentwood, Billericay and of course, the last day of the famous Essex Book Festival. Its Director, the super Ros Green joined us in the studio and we learnt much about how the Festival is planned, how the creative folk are chosen and how the team works hard to satisfy so many readers and writers.
