I’ve wanted to do this for so long and I’m feeling accomplished for having got this far and by this far I mean just setting up a Word Press blog site. I’m not the most technological minded and my meopausal brain lacks the power of logical thinking (if it ever had it!). However I’ve made it and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and connected with like minded book lovers. Alongside my love of reading and cooking I’ve recently started a new full time job and have two secondary school children, three grown up children, three step-children, and a lovely expanding mixture of grandchildren of which I’m fast losing count! We have a mad crazy family but it seems to work. I also have a dog called Ted who thinks he’s a cat and a cat called Casper who thinks he’s a dog!

I’ll be blogging about books and I might also throw some recipes in I’ve tried but I also want to connect with others and hear about their recommendations. I have a contact link so please do get in touch. Let me know what you think about this site as I build it – but be gentle – as I said I am learning as I go……!
