Two Clumsy Hands by Edith Witts (1956) Where it all began…
This dear story was a Sunday school prize for my mum back in 1957 and I discovered it on my grandmother’s bookshelf when I was around eight.
Although I was already an avid reader and lived my life up the Faraway Tree, by the shores of Plum Creek or daydreaming with Anne, this story made an indelible impression on me and its uplifting, sweet little story of a time gone by is one of my dearest keepsakes.
I’m an Aus-Brit who longs to visit the Scottish Highlands. I love urban life one day, rural life the next. I think everyone should have a pet and my dog, Charlie, is my furbaby. Fortunately the rest of my family are with me on this!
I spend most of my online time at Instagram. Come and say Hi! @two.clumsy.hands
Or, if you want to see more pics of Charlie (and why wouldn’t you?) you can also find me at @life.with.ruth.
