I’ve been looking into my family tree for a couple of years now, and love to watch the TV programme, ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ What relevance is this to a Blog about books? Well, it’s been rumoured within my family that we are related to Wordsworth – I have my doubts, but did do a little computer-based delving. I found, to my surprise, that my family lived in the same area as Wordsworth, during the same period in time. That’s where my research ended, unfortunately. Genealogy can be a rewarding hobby, but it is costly, both in time and money. Still, I’d like to find out if this story is true or a fabrication, handed down from one generation to another, and embellished (like a quilt, passed from mother to daughter, through the ages).
Today, I became the proud owner of my Certificate in Counselling Skills, Level 2. Maybe it will make me a better writer…hopefully, it will make me a better listener!
