What I’m Reading This Month


I’ve not read too much this month, or even this year really. I’ve mainly been crocheting so the books have taken a back seat.


I’ve get my magazines each month and I have a flick through normally before I get down to having a good read of all the articles. I find because they are a month ahead, these are April issues, that if I read them towards the end of the month I get them, possibly into the following month, everything is still relevant and I don’t feel like I’m wishing the year away too much.


This is the book I’ve been perusing this month. I’ve not read all of it yet, I keep meaning to go back and finish it. It’s a small book and only 95 pages so it won’t take long to read. I must admit I just have felt the urge to finish it. The books OK and I think I should re read and actually put some of the exercises into practice. Maybe I should come back when I’ve finished reading it and tried out some, or all, of the exercises it suggests. Yes, maybe I should do that, as I can’t really say much about it at the moment.

I have been looking on Amazon for another book or two. I’m thinking I might like a picture heavy book maybe interior or possibly garden type book as we are hoping to do a bit more in our garden this spring/summer. I will of course let you know my choices and my opinions.

Right that’s it for this post I think, sorry it’s not overly exciting, perhaps I shouldn’t have written the post until I could say more about the book but nevermind I like to come and waffle sometimes.

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you’ll come back soon, take care E x



Homemade Pizza and Hooky


I picked up my crochet the other night. I don’t really know what happened but I haven’t done any for quite a few months, maybe 4 or 5. Well I did a couple more rounds on my Granny Square Blanket (above). I’m really wanting to finish it because I’m having ideas for a new blanket, but don’t want to start it before this is finished as I know this one will get left in my basket looking sad and unloved and we can’t have that.



My Country Living magazine arrived the other day in the post. It normally sits on the table for a few weeks before I get around to reading it. I don’t mind this too much really as the one thing that I don’t particularly like about magazines is their leap into the future. This issue is October, so it’s an autumn issue, with autumnal colours, ideas etc. This for me, in the middle of summer is a bit too much and I do like to wait a bit.

Of course this doesn’t really apply in February and I get a April issue, with all the joys of spring inside, I open that straight away to feast on the spring plants and all the beautiful colours.


Homemade pizza for lunch, for the boys the other day. I do them each a separate one as they have very different tastes, but they are always a big hit.

Hope your week has been filled with fun and laughter. Please drop by again soon.

Take care. E x
