Bumped by Megan McCafferty #100books

This book was sent to review as part of a bundle of holiday reading for teens/ pre-teens. Big started it, but found it a bit above her head – she is only 11 though. So I read it instead, and found it to be a perfectly enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. The style of […]

So much to say

so little inspiration on where to start. A report on the day – quick trip to supermarket this morning to replenish milk supplies – so handy having a coop within staggering distance. Never have quite worked out why popping out for milk costs ยฃ15 though… Then the osteopath, lovely lady. I was a minute or […]

What’s needed here is a plan.

Two major issues here. Too much stuff, not enough money. So, major decluttering, hopefully raising some money along the way.

Justice for Ayn #blogforAyn
