The Idler

100_0726Stories My Nana Tells”

In the disguise of “The Idler”, Lesley Dewar writes stories to be enjoyed as a lifestyle blog. Travel, health, family, pets and quirky ideas  make “The Idler” a fun gig. Our stories range from sublime to the ridiculous; from tragedy to the best of belly laughs and will be published here. Here is where this poppy can bloom! Please leave your comments and contributions.  There are no tall poppies here.

You are welcome to leave your comments on each individual story.

We will soon be making our stories available on a regular subscription basis – one a fortnight – emailed directly to you, your child or your grandchild.  Your choice.
