So it’s the end of February, the sun is shining, daffodils are everywhere, and my neighbour is on his driveway sunning himself in a tee shirt and jeans. As I sit near my kitchen window, I am squinting to see the laptop screen. These are all good signs.
Another inkling developed this week when I had the pleasure of speaking to Saba Rais, the new owner (as of January 2014) of The Village Bookshop in nearby Woodford. She is an ex-lawyer, turned writer, who is following her dream, so definitely in good company there. She sent over some lovely photos of her shop which is completely refitted and restocked and hosting book signings and reading groups for children.
