    BLOG BOOK TOUR: The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin

    **This book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Random Things Tours and Doubleday UK for the opportunity.** SUMMARY Seventeen-year-old Lenni Petterson is painfully aware of how short life is. She lives on the terminal ward at the Glasgow Princess Royal Hospital. This doesn’t stop Lenni from wanting to live, and she realises the best way to do that is when you share your experiences with other people. Eighty-three-year-old Margot is rebellious and sees that same trait in Lenni when she demands to go to an art class in the hospital’s new art facility, the Rose Room. Between the pair, they form a precious bond…

You know who you are.  As has been stated – and obvious – from previous posts I’ve had a really tough 2018. I’ve needed an incredible amount of support to be able to get through it.

    To All The Friends That I’ve Let Down

    Hey, For this post, I wanted to try something a little different. I’ve written open letters to myself before: my younger and future selves. This time I thought I’d write a letter to people I’ve let down. At some point, we all let someone down and sometimes we don’t even realise we have. So this one is to all the friends that feel I’ve let them down.   None of us are ‘perfect’ friends no matter how hard we try to be. I know this because I’ve tried really hard to do that myself. It is an impossible task. I’m terrible at replying to messages. I can read a message,…
