12th January

Thank you once again to the book Magic in the Landscape by Nigel Pennick for informing me that a London church, St Mary Aldermanbury, was moved stone by numbered stone to Fulton Missouri, ten years after the church was bombed and burned out in the London blitz during WWII. I knew that London Bridge was moved to Lake Havasu City in 1967, but this was after St Mary Aldermanbury was moved.

Today’s word is nattiness used by George Eliot in Silas Marner. Nattiness is a noun and means smart and fashionable. I remember finding Eliot’s grave in Highgate cemetery in London, quite close to Karl Marx, and being shocked how overgrown and uncared for the grave was.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
