a day to remember

Ever since my two boys – Ed and Ben – first presented me with gorgeous gluey cards they had made as toddlers at nursery, I’ve had a soft spot for Mother’s Day. Of course, I always feel guilty that I don’t really deserve any gifts or cards because looking after your children, well, that’s just part and parcel of being a mum, isn’t it? But with my boys now giant teenagers, who’s to say that a little thank you for doing the endless laundry, clearing up and cooking wouldn’t go amiss?

At 61, I finally feel like I’m allowed to do what I want – it’s liberating’Fern, 61, lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband Phil Vickery, 57, and their daughter Winnie, 17. Fern also has grown-up twin sons, Harry and Jack, and daughter Grace from her previous marriage. This month, she’s releasing her latest Cornish-set novel, The Newcomer, about a new parish vicar who creates a stir in the village of Pendruggan.WRITING MY OWN RULESDon’t ask me why but I enjoy a challenge more the older I get. Perhaps it’s because I’m less afraid of the consequences if I fail at something now.
