I found it difficult to find the right words to do justice to the BBC's adaptation of Hilary Mantel's books Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies so I won't even attempt it. Here is an article in the Guardian newspaper: 
‪  Wolf Hall in my opinion the best historical drama that has been on our screens in years. I found it difficult to find the right words to do justice to the BBC's adaptation of Hilary Mantel's books Wolf Hall and B...

Story
Tagline
Enthused, excited, but mostly bewildered!
Introduction

After ten years in the workplace I became a mother to three very beautiful daughters, I was fortunate enough to have been able to stay at home and spend my time with them as they grew into the young women they are now. I am still in the position of being able to be at home and pursue all the interests I have previously mentioned. We live in a beautiful Victorian spa town with wooded walks for the dog, lovely shops and a host of lovely people, what more could I ask for.

Bragging rights
My head may be in the clouds but my feet are firmly in beautiful England. I love my daughters of which I have three. I enjoy history especially the medieval period, researching my family history, craft, sewing, art, reading, the very beautiful county of Cornwall ...oh and anything about Richard III.
