Kittens and codes, marriage and Breughal

There's something completely addictive about Ann's reflective connections, made with such apparent ease --  on a trip to the garden centre, f'rinstance. Here's the latest instalment from her life in Portugal (and I do have more to upload later). Click to read

Meanwhile - NB - Imogen (Robertson's) brilliant first novel Instruments of Darkness is now in paperback AND her second, The Anatomy of Murder, will be published at the end of the month.

Ann Palmer and Peter Duck

I was searching for something quite different when I came across this snapshot of the moment Ann and I met on board Peter Duck in August 2000. Ann had arrived in Harwich on board Shtandart, the replica of Peter the Great's flag ship. This was the project that had taken Greg and Ann and Peter Duck as well to live in Russia. Greg had died there and Peter Duck had come home to Woodbridge where Francis and I had bought her. Now Shtandart was completed and Ann setting foot on Peter Duck for the first time since she'd watched her sail away from St Petersburg. It was an emotional moment.
