I want to introduce my........................
Yes, my inspiration for this blog.
"The Gentle Art of Domesticity" by Jane Brocket of blogging perfection which is the must-see Yarnstorm.
Yarnstorm has an enormous following, and those followers have a huge affection for Jane and the inspiration she gives us on a daily basis. So naturally we were all thrilled to see she had produced a book based on her blog. We haven't been so thrilled to see the ill-informed, biased and bitter reaction of the British press, which attacks Jane and her wonderful book. And Jane's post today made me feel rather sad, that she feels forced to justify herself, her life, and everything she has achieved. It was in great contrast to all her other posts on her blog, where she never mentions anything negative in her life, she is only ever positive and inspiring.
I am really enjoying this book, it is like a series of short stories, each one ending with something to mull over. Actually it makes lethal bed-time reading, because I'm left thinking about it so much I can't get to sleep...............
So that's my tribute to Jane and her creations.
Long may they continue!
