  1. Hi nanny!!! I’ve been reading your stories and poems recently and i love them, they are really inspiring me at the moment because i have a new project at uni where I have to write a 1000 word story and then illustrate and make it into a book. I’ve decided to write a story about two women who love going to bingo in croydon. I really wanted to write a love story about two old ladies falling in love at bingo but my teacher wanted it to have more of a fairytale feel about it! so im a bit stuck really. Anyway I hope your well nanny. I might be back home april time for easter i shall pop down and visit

    loads of love

  2. Dear Jessica, Thanks for your comment, which I’ve only just picked up. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Good luck with your story. I like the idea of the fairy-tale feel. It gives the imagination a bit more scope. I find, when trying to write that, if I’m lucky and I get one idea, it is like taking a tissue from the box and one idea pulls out another one. Enjoy it. I hope you are settled in your new home and that things go well at Uni. I look forward to seeing you, sometime in April. if you see Hannah, give her my love.
    Love
    Nan

    I’ve been browsing your blog for the first time after meeting you in the Ardington Hotel in Worthing today (I was the tall, grey man with Russ Bravo). Marion, I love what I’ve read so far and want to thank you for being an encouragement and inspiration to other writers. Your words really make life dance.

  4. To Martin Collins.
    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. I loved meeting all the people at the Ardington Hotel this morning and as I am a fairly recent arrival (three years) in Worthing,it is helping me to make friends. I have read some of Russ’s blog and enjoyed it. Do you have a blog? I am very interested in other people’s work.

    Hi Marion,

    Funny ‘innit coz now I’m 58 and your’e 87 I can now call you Marion whereas up until Chris & Cindy’s wedding you have only been Mrs. Sharville !

    Any way just to say that Matt’s funeral was about as good as funerals can get. The warmth anf Love of your sons and daughter Jane was an inspiration to me and probably every last person who was there today.

    I’m going to write you a poem about a ‘gaggle of Pete Sharville’s” As I said earlier this afternoon, I’ve never seen such a collection of Pete Sharville’s all in one place at one time.

    God Bless Matthew and the whole Sharville clan, and what a wonderful clan they turned out to be !

    Pete would have been so proud of your boys and Jane and so would have been Dennis. Funny though I sensed they were both there with us all today.

    Night night Marion. See you on the 4th July at Chris’s ok.

    Love Janet & John ( book 3 ) xxx

  6. Thanks John & Janet. It was lovely that so many of Matt’s friends came together and shared so much love and affection. I remember you all, filling the kitchen and eating me out of house and home and now you are all grown up. Where did all those years go? Time plays tricks on us. Pete used to say ‘Time was only invented to prevent everything happening at once.’ Sometimes it feels as if they are.
    I know Matt has gone but I’m still trying to take it in. It’s so unbelievable. Death has a sharp axe. The pain comes later.
    Yes, I am proud of Jane and the boys and their families. They give me so much love and support.
    See you on Saturday.
    Love
    Marion

    Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis.

    It will always be interesting to read through articles from
    other authors and practice a little something from their sites.
