October has been a super-busy month for us. We started packing in earnest ready for our move, went to Barbados on holiday, came back, I went to a hen-do and we did lots more packing.
Hello, hello. I hope you are all well. This is actually the first post I am writing after our holiday. (Last week's posts were written before we travelled) and I'm still getting into the swing of things over here.
Another month ticked off. Check! September has been a bit of a strange month. It has definitely been stop start on the weather and I have been forced to resurrect the summer wardrobe
I do hope that you have all had a lovely weekend. Our weekend was spent looking at our soon-to-be new home and it was so good. As the estate agent said at the end of our visit 'You are still smiling'.
I'm only 3 days late in wrapping up my August reads, namely because I was so keen to include Malibu Rising which was the perfect summer read. August has been a lovely month for us.
One of the things that people never tell you about putting a house up for sale is the amount of decluttering that needs to take place. I always thought I was quite sparse in my decoration
When I first started my blog, I knew I wanted it to be seasonal. The colours change in the header over the seasons, as do the images I use. And so now that July has finished, in my calendar, we have one more month of summer left.
And just like that we have finished with June. This year is now seriously starting to fly. As I write, England has beaten Germany in the Euros 2020 (no, that's not a typo -the result or the year)
I haven't done a Book Chat post in forever, and thought it might be time to do one as I have a bit to catch up on. I also want to tell you about 2 books, that I have been reading throughout this year
I am of the generation of children who in the lead up to Christmas would sit down with my mum's Freeman's catalogue and go through the toy section, making notes of the presents that I wanted father Christmas to get me.
I'm going to ask you to bear with me here as an analogy is coming. Reading War and Peace is a little like training for a marathon. In fact a lot of the tips I'm about to give you could apply to running 26.2 miles
I have been promising this post for a little while. A few weeks ago I reviewed Rules for Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson. I loved this book namely because it was set in a bookshop, at Christmas and was about crime fiction.
Like a lot of book-lovers, I seem to find myself with rather an enormous amount of books. These comprise of books I've read and loved, stored carefully on our bookshelves ready to be re-read when the mood takes.
