Goodbye Poldark!

Rena George Cornwall, Fiction, Poldark, Uncategorized 2 Comments

Poldark has come to an end. We left Ross and Demelza sharing a passionate embrace as a spectacular expanse of ocean glinted in the background. These weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster for viewers of the BBC series as our charismatic couple were plunged into one disastrous event after another. And now we must all wait until next year to discover what happens next. The end of the current ten week series reminded me that I have not posted on …

Isn’t Christmas wonderful? I’m not normally so disorganised, but this year, with so much to do, I’ve definitely been struggling. Next year things will be different!

Welcome to My New Look Blog

Rena George Uncategorized 12 Comments

I’m back! And with a great sigh of relief (from me) my blog is up and running again. Yay! I hope you will agree that it’s much cleaner, easier to read, and generally just looks a lot better than before. Being metamorphosed isn’t easy folks and if anyone tries to fool you into believing that such a change around it’s painless, well…just don’t believe them. We’ve suffered all kinds of angst about what to put in here and what to …

Can Blog Awards Save the Blog?

Rena George Uncategorized 12 Comments

It was great to receive a blog award from the lovely writer, Rosemary Gemmell, this week. I really like the way these awards help to promote good blogging and remind us that it’s not all about Facebook. Maria over at First Draft Cafe has a thought provoking post about social media having taken over from letter writing. It made me wonder if the same thing is happening to blogs. Admittedly it’s a lot easier to post all your news on …

Cats, Nuts and Some Fire in the Blood

Rena George Uncategorized 10 Comments

This blog post isn’t about cats, but the trio above looked so adorable in this picture I thought you might like to meet them. Richio (pronounced Reeshio), the black and white one, and tabbies Yemi and Yumi can be pretty appealing when they are waiting for their supper, but don’t let that look of innocent fool you.They rule the roost in my son, Craig’s London home, but then they are quite cute. I love this time of year when the …

I’m Having a Little Rant – Well, Quite a big One, Really.

Rena George Uncategorized 10 Comments

I was intending to put up a writerly post today about the progress of my new novel, but instead I’m going to have a rant. The reason being that I caught the tail end of an item in a TV consumer programme where an ‘expert’ was explaining that cooked ham could be seriously contaminated simply by coming in contact with someone’s hands.   She was talking about some kind of chemical reaction that sets up between the germs on your …

Some Creature Comforts …

I’m stepping aside for the animals this week – and if you want to know why, well just take a look at the fabulous creatures below (but don’t miss that final clip) This Cornish pair look as if they’ve just had a big falling out – or maybe they were just enjoying the fabulous view over St Ives harbour. Not sure what kind of hawk this chap is, but he was huge, and didn’t seem to mind my creeping closer …
