15 Mar

Evening all, just popping on to with a treat for all you lovely mothers that read the blog.

If you’re really lucky this Mothers Day, you’ll me able to engage in a bit of “Me Time” and why not do so with a good book!

I’ve Included a little about the title below, which I’m sure will be enough to get you entering!

Eilidh Lawson’s life has hit crisis point. Years of failed fertility treatments, a cheating husband and an oppressive family have pushed her to the limit. Desperate for relief, Eilidh seeks solace in the only place she’s ever felt at home – a small village in the Scottish Highlands. There, Eilidh slowly begins to mend her broken heart but soon learns she is not the only one in the village struggling to recover from a painful past. Jamie McAnena, Eilidh’s childhood friend, is trying to raise his daughter Maisie alone. After Maisie’s mother left to pursue a career in London and Jamie’s own mother, Elizabeth, passed away, he has resigned himself to being a family of two. But sometimes there is more to a story than meets the eye. Despite their reluctance, curious circumstances keep bringing Jamie and Eilidh together. For even when it seems all is lost, help can come from the most surprising places.

An ethereal and beautifully written debut novel, Watch Over Me is a poignant story about letting go and moving on – with a little bit of help from beyond the grave

    I deserve some Me time, as I have had a very stressful time recently with my 19 yr old adopted daughter. I have been busy and still am helping her sort her problems out. Also I am trying to decorate my house to get it ready to sell.

    Mum works 3 jobs ATM to make sure we get a holiday. She deserves some me time for sure!!!

    My mother deserves some me time, because she is still going strong at 87. She regularly looks after her 4 great grandchildren, and ensures they all have a fun time

    My Mother deserves a bit of Me time, because for the first time in years, she is actually looking after No 1 after raising six kids

    The only time my Mum ever stays still is when she has her nose in a good book, even this is sometimes performed standing up! I hope Watch Over Me will get her to relax for a few hours.

    I deserve some “me time” because I have two boys aged 5 and 2 and my youngest is going through the terrible two’s at the minute, so “me time” is very much needed!

  26. I deserve some me time because I’m a busy mummy, juggling full time work and university! I’m a final year student, so this year has been extremely busy and challenging for me. I’ve been writing my dissertation and research project on bird’s vigilance behaviour, collecting data and it’s been non-stop! 🙂 x

    My mum deserves a bit of ‘me time’ because she is not only a fabulous mum to me and my three siblings, but she is a fanta, just tostic grandma to her 16 grand children, whom are all aged 8 and below!!!! We all live within 5 minutes of our parents too, so we are always knocking on their door or ringing their phone to ask if they can babysit – and we never hear the words ‘No, sorry’!!! Even as a sufferer of diabetes and arthritis, our mum will always offer to help whenever she is asked. And even when she hasn’t been asked to babysit, she always has at least one or two of her grandchildren visiting her!!! She gets very little me time and I think she deserves a special treat! @tracyknixon

    My Mother deserves a bit of Me time, as for the 1st time in 38 Years, she is actually starting to look after No1, rather then others needs before her own, recently widowed and living 12,000 miles away from me… A Good book is a perfect Mothers Day Gift, and because she lives in Oz, it means I can have a Crafty read 1st, and can send it on to her in time for Mothers day which is Celebrated on the 9th of May, that side of the world 🙂
