IN LATE 2006, Judith O’Reilly started a blog called www.wifeinthenorth.com to vent her frustration after reluctantly moving to Northumberland from London. Northumberland is not exactly for the faint-hearted. Her blog charts her adventures and misadventures raising her family in the north. Surprise of surprises, her blog will soon be published as a book by Viking Penguin. Congratulations on the book deal, Judith!
