The Story of Holly and Ivy

by Rumer Godden

I picked up my old copy of this over the weekend and tried B on it. It’s quite a long read – probably an hour and a half ( with interuptions) and I’m not quite sure he’s really understood the story line yet, but he enjoyed it enough to ask for it again the next day. And every day since , but I’ve hidden it now – I have never managed to get through this book without tears and it’s a bit embarrasing sitting there with your children watching you !

Matt and I also finally managed to watch our Merchant of Venice this weekend. We’ve started it twice before, not had time to finish it for a few months, and then had to start again because we’ve forgotten the plot! Anyway, it was very good. Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons.
