      Hi Rhoda!!

      I just found out about your blog from the House to Home newsletter so thought I’d introduce my little company and also let you know that we would be truly over the moon if you ever decided to feature any of our products : ) !!!

      Good luck with the blog.

      Hi Rhoda

      Could you please advise where I can purchase the beautiful Rowan Kidsilk Aura throw pattern as on page 74 of the new CH & I magazine (Jan 2010). I would really love to knit this over the Christmas Holidays.

      Best Wishes

      Dear Rhoda,
      Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic magazine Country Homes & Interiors is. I have been an avid reader for the past couple of years and each month I look forward to the new issue.
      Not sure how many of your readers are male, but would love you to feature some articles about men ,who work in the world of interiors and craft. I am sure it is not only me who is in touch with my feminine side!!

      Best wishes and keep up the fantastic work,

      Just to say “Hi!” from here in sunny Torbay! What a coincidence that the reply above is also from Torbay (well, Torquay, one of the three towns which make up the Borough of Torbay.)

      Hello there
      I’m pitching in from Devon too. I just want to share with you my blog address. I’m a country pottery, making traditional English country slipware – wheel thrown, glazed with traditional glazes, fired in a kiln fuelled with wood – all the old fashioned country way.
      Very best wishes

      I look forward to your gorgeous magazine every month, and even though we are two months behind and the seasons are reversed I love to catch up on all things country. My friend says I should be English but there is an English mother in the background. Thank you to all the folks who share their lovely homes, and beautiful gardens, and the inspiring recipes also.

      Keep up the wonderful articles, and should you ever wish to come to New Zealand I would love to catch up.

      Good wishes

      How I love your mag, it’s on my Xmas list every year and my son never lets me down with a subscription.
      However just a moan if I may. I buy 3 other interior mags every month, my little indulgence. I am disheartened at times to see someones “wonderful” house and how they created it not just in one mag but in another one 3 months earlier and then 18 months previously etc. etc. If you feature someone and obviously pay them for this surely they should be signing to say they will not tout the magazine offices to see how many will feature and pay them.
      Love to hear your thoughts.

      Hi Rhoda,

      My sister’s friend subscribes to your magazine and whilst flicking through the magazine in Moama, Australia, I see your familiar face. You don’t seem to have changed at all since seeing you last when you and Karen were staying with me in Melbourne be it nearly 20 years ago!!!!

      Just to refresh your memory I moved into Wolsely Gardens Chiswick with Kate, Brian and Jeremy when you and Karen moved out.

      Do you still keep in touch with any of them? I have lost touch and am busy with husband and 4 children ranging from Harry 9, Ines 7, Rosie 4 and Tom 1 (today).

      Have not been working in midwifery for 4 years or so now, just been a bit busy with family and have just finished part a of our home renovation !!!

      We are living in Albury NSW about 3 hours from Melbourne adn 6 from Sydney. We are enjoying the benefits of having access to great facilities in a large country town.

      I feel as though I have had a peek at your life with your 2 boys and no doubt busy life between sussex and london. Lovely to touch base.

      Kind regards
      Kate Preston
