Family-Talk is a wonderful project set up during Lockdown to unite families. The idea is to record memories to pass down to the next generation.

You can hear Sophie Neville being interviewed here

Family-Talk is available to anyone wishing to have their life story recorded. It is great for those who wish to leave a heart-warming conversation with someone from a different generation within their family. Technology is available to connect a group of people on one line within the UK or abroad.

All recordings are GDPR privacy compliant ie they are strictly confidential. 

A  professional audio engineer ensures best possible quality sound. 

Hour-long interviews can be recorded over the phone or via WhatsApp on a Thursday and sent to you via We Transfer.

The service is completely free of charge. If you would like to be interviewed, please email Barbara at

More information can be found on the website:

New Floral Design Stationary

All the writers I know love a notebook. It makes the perfect present for any event. I've spent time during Lockdown designing a selection of botanical-themed journals, greeting cards, postcards and spiral notebooks. You can see a selection here.

 Floral notebooks and hardback journals can be views and purchased online here.

All these photographs were taken in our garden.

The idea was to be able to send flowers that would last and inspire great writing.

 I also designed some spring cards and postcards available here 

including some more masculine designs.

Does anyone send postcards anymore?

I always find spiral notebooks useful.

 You can find floral notebooks available here.

You might like to make up your own, if you have time.

This one with cherries is quite fun.

A prayer for the time of coronavirus

Psalm 91 New International Version


Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress,

my God, in whom I trust.'

Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 

You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, ‘The Lord is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling,

10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13  You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent .

14 ‘Because he loves me,’ says the Lord, ‘I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.’
