Only in your super, soaraway Eastcliff Richard! Each week local author Janet Thanet gives us her insight into the island!!!
I'd been meaning to take the dog for a walk but somehow hadn't quite got around to it after Rodney treated me to an echinacea rub in our gorgeous walled garden. Enjoying a cup of organic Earl Grey, I was miles away, remembering dreamy days on the beach at our beloved Broadstairs.
I'd been suffering from a touch of anxiety brought on by the time of the month, and what with all the hoo-ha surrounding the launch of my latest book How to turn a million words into a million quid (Snood Press, £9.99) had quite forgotten that Bunty was coming over for luncheon. Only when darling Rover started barking at the gate did I arouse from my reverie.
Cutting the crusts off the egg and cress sandwiches seemed so prosaic after the dreaminess of the morning that next time I shall have to prevail upon Rodney, methinks.
