There was a time when I couldn’t miss a couple of TV Soaps ~ with Coronation Street and Glenroe being absolutely unmissable. The arrival of baby in 1995 seemed to put a stop to that and I never got back into them.
A few months ago I came across a blog that has me totally and utterly hooked. I just have to read it everyday, no matter what. It’s called A Hundred Years Ago and is a brilliantly crafted work in which a middle-aged grand daughter, Sheryl, brings us the entries of her grandmother, Helena’s, diaries which she kept from 1911-1914. Helena was aged between 15 and 19 when she wrote her diaries.
Sheryl remains true to the short entries and engages in a conversation with her grandmother, who died in 1980, as well as setting the context of the time and place ~ central Pennsylvania where Helena was living when she wrote the diaries.
This is clearly a labour of love and one which has captivated the imaginations of many readers ~ who, like me, can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode.
I’d love to hear about blogs that you are addicted to as I shudder to think how I’ll be when 1914, or is it 2014, draws to a close.
