World Record Attempt- Can you help?

I'm not really going to attempt a world record challenge as such, but I will be trying to do the modern day equivalent and I'm going to attempt to make "Five Go Glamping" or #FiveGoGlamping to trend on twitter next Friday.

I'm using thunderclap to help me! You can help too by clicking on join the thunderclap below.
If I am successful by getting 100 people to join up and support, thunderclap will release 100 messages about Five Go Glamping onto twitter on Friday afternoon at 1pm which will create a real splash.
I'd love if you could help! So come and join the party and Join The Thunderclap!

Dogs on holiday

Now, where were we? That's right, we'd been glamping. I realise I haven't blogged about the night after glamping where we went to Weston Super Mare.
I will blog about that soon because I have to tell you about the OAP coach trip outing and the hen party in the hotel. And the scary lift. And I totally will do that- but first I must show you this!
We went to Ireland and here are some of the dogs I met:

There was this dog


And this dog- this dog looks quite posh I think.


And the posh dog had a friend who didn't trust anybody. 


 This dog was doing his own thing


Then there was this dog who was  THE BEST DOG OF HOLIDAY because he is a Standing Up In The Sea Dog and he has a best friend who was also a dog




Then there was this cat who wasn't a dog but thought he lived in the hotel because he was too ridiculous




And finally there was this squirrel who wasn't a dog and wasn't alive and lived in the shop where you buy typewriters and posters of Our Lady appearing to people and other stuff like plates and a weird jug. No, I don't know either. I have not a bloody clue 


And that is all the dogs I saw on holiday. Thank you.

The Sisters by Claire Douglas

I was lucky enough to read an advanced copy of The Sisters by Claire Douglas which is out this week.

When one sister dies, the other must go to desperate lengths to survive

After a tragic accident, still haunted by her twin sister’s death, Abi is making a fresh start in Bath. But when she meets siblings Bea and Ben, she is quickly drawn into their privileged and unsettling circle.

When one sister lies, she must protect her secret at all costs

As Abi tries to keep up with the demands of her fickle friends, strange things start to happen – precious letters go missing and threatening messages are left in her room. Is this the work of the beautiful and capricious Bea? Or is Abi willing to go to any lengths to get attention?

When the truth outs, will either sister survive?


When people review books they love, they use terms like “beautifully written” and “expertly crafted” and  while there is no doubt that these terms could be used to describe this novel, it would do it no justice because it’s a story that is felt, experienced and breathed in. It's so immersive that it's hard to believe it has been constructed at all. 

When you are reading this book, it is so real and so vivid, that as a reader, rather than feeling this novel has been “crafted” or “written” this story for the reader doesn’t seem like a story that has been “put together”. 
I don’t mean this in the sense that the author has lived this life or these characters are a part of her or is in anyway autobiographical, but in the sense that the story was already there and the author has then somehow delivered the story straight into our memories almost as though we knew this place, these characters and this  story was there all along. 

But while  the novel feels almost instantly like a place we know,   there is barely a page in the novel when you can fully know for sure what is going on. 
There are characters we fall in and out of love with throughout the book. There is the broken vunerable Abi, the mesmerising Beatrice and there is Ben, Beatrice’s brother who Abi begins a relationship with. 

As a reader we experience a kind of suffocating, claustrophobic ugliness in amongst the aesthetically pleasing and stunning visual world of Beatrice and her arty friends. 
The book feels very visual, very filmic. We experience every breath of this story without ever being able to say for certain that what we are experiencing is true. 
It’s simply incredible and I really, really want everyone to read it so we can all talk about it. 

You can order it on amazon here 
and you can listen to the first chapter here
