    Well reading or I wouldn't be here! And my swimming, although can be a bit lapse at times. I like to knit wee hats for 'The Big Knit' and also squares for L.I.L.Y blankets for Syria and other charity knitting projects I can help out with.

  1. 2018 'The Runaway Quilt'(Elm Creek Quilts #4) by Jennifer Chiaverini review here
  2. 'The Runaway Quilt' (Elm Creek Series #4) by Jennifier Chiaverini It has been a while since I've read an Elm Creek quilt adventure and I enjoyed it. It was interesting finding out about the 'codes' supposedly used in quilts to guide runaway slaves via the Underground railway to safety. All this found out by Sylvia reading memoirs written by her great grandmother's sister Gerda and quilts stitched and kept in the house she wasn't aware of. It would appear they gave shelter to a pregnant runaway Joanna who desperately needed shelter. This is a large part of the memoir and how they managed to help her, amongst other family secrets. I look forward to reading the remaining books of the series I have on my shelf. 4/5
  3. oooo...didn't know there were those. Sounds like fun to follow up on characters.
  4. @chesilbeach....I have read two of her others and good few years ago now though...'Over You' and 'Any Way You Want Me'
  5. Just read another Lucy Diamond as my first read of 2018. Nice cosy read of café and Cornwall and nice characters. One to curl up on the sofa with blanket and a cuppa and think if summer. The Beach Cafe
  6. I'm not starting this again for 2018. I've decided I will just keep adding to it if and when I read something that fits in. First one added for 2018 was for the café/restaurant theme.
  7. 'The Beach Cafe' by Lucy Diamond Starting of the year with an easy read from the TBR pile. Café and Cornwall seemed like a nice escape read and it was. Evie inherits her Aunts beach café. Stuck in a rut with temping jobs that are boring and going nowhere she decides to give it a go. Her boyfriend breaks up with her and she eventually moves to Cornwall. Lots of things to learn about running a wee business etc. A delightful jumble of likeable characters. It flows along gently with sometimes predictable outcomes, but nothing bad happens and has a nice cosy ending. Just the thing for these cold, winter days/evenings to curl up with. Probably more of a summer read though. 4/5

    Hubby seems to be enjoying all the old 'Lost in Space' episodes. I often find him chortling away at how bad the acting is and the aliens...well you have to see them

  11. Christmas Reads/Books

    @Athena....the deed is done I bought my 'The Stolen Marriage' by Diane Chamberlain (my Christmas pressie to myself ), but oops you know how it is when you see a 'buy one get one half price'...and I did. The other book is 'Friend Request' by Laura Marshall. Sounds like a good read going by the comments inside the cover.
