An Update

Well it has been quite some time since I last posted and this is why…


Yes, I finally got married on 27 April 2019 and this was followed up by a blissful trip to Paris.

The wedding itself had a bookish theme, with flowers made out of old book pages which were taken by the guests as keepsakes – the teacups were actually my grandmother’s, left to me on her death in 1995 so I was delighted to work them into the decorations.


So in short now that project is over I should now have time to get back to reading again – I discovered you can’t be a book blogger when you aren’t actually reading much at all. Of course I have read during my absence and so I will be sharing reviews of those books while I pick up the reins to blogging and of course connecting with all my blogging friends; I have a feeling that I’m going to want to read all the books I’ve missed during my break.
