  1. Your Book Activity - May 2022

    So happy you've got your reading mojo back, Chrissy I've been enjoying books set on the Home Front during WW2. Perhaps it's the courage, humour and resilience of people being constantly bombed and putting up with so many deprivations that's somehow comforting and reassuring, especially with how things are in the world at present. Just finished Spam Tomorrow by Verily Anderson, and now reading Nothing to Report by Carola Oman.

  7. Seasonal Poems

    It's Anzac Day here ... In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie, In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. In Flanders Fields ~ John McCrae, 1914
  8. Take a Letter Maria ~ R.B Greaves
  9. Morning Has Broken ~ Cat Stevens
  10. What's for Dinner?

    Yes they are, it's not common to make homemade baked beans here. I have tried a couple of times, I think, but would love your recipe if you don't mind sharing it 😊

  12. What's for Dinner?

    Now cheese and jam, that would be even better! We always have baked beans on toast too, although I love a cold baked bean sandwich as well I wonder if it's the same as ours?
