I think it is fair to say that I am about as good a gardener as I am a cook. Just to clarify, I am pretty rubbish at both. However, since having a garden of my own for the last 6 years I have picked up a few things a long the way. With a million Little Man related things, bills, days out, food etc to pay for the garden tends to come fairly far down the financial planning list. Therefore when it is paid some attention, it is often on a budget. As spring is feeling like a very… View Post

I love this quote. It is one I have to remember sometimes. I’ll be back next Monday with posts galore; I just need a bit of writing time and a bit of breathing space.

Welcome to my From My Bookshelf series, you can read more about it here. In a nutshell the point of this series is for me to put my Librarian hat on and share with you the books that I have been reading.
