Books I read in November

Well November came and went in a flash didn’t it. Now we’re fully into Christmas mode and getting ready for the main event in just a few weeks. Whilst I have only just put my decorations up, I have been reading festive books for a while now and this is highlighted by the fact that…

Books I read in October

Well well well, those of you who follow my blog will have noticed that earlier today WordPress decided it wasn’t good enough and deleted it. At least thats what I have convinced myself happened and not the fact that they have a new system and that deleted it. All that hard work – so frustrating. …

October Bakes

Its been another busy month of baking thanks to the Great British Bake off and I hope that it won’t stop just because the show has ended. Fingers crossed. Looking at the pictures, it was a very beige looking month with a lot of pastry…not like me really – silly bake off challenge! Puits D’Amour…

September Bakes

September has been a busy month for baking thanks to the return of the Great British Bake Off! Whilst I am not overly convinced about this year’s show in all, I do enjoy watching and baking along weekly and the fact that I am baking more. So what have I made. As it’s bake off…

Books I read in September

I managed to read a few books in September, helping me gaining back the step ahead on my reading challenge, there’s more work to be done but it was a good reading month and one I enjoyed. The Good Samaritan – John Marrs Date added to Goodreads:  12th October 2017 Date read: 12th September 2018…

August Bakes

August, another month that has flown by. It was also the month Great British Bake Off retuned to our screens. Its very exciting because it means that I will be baking more and these will be more interesting! Gin and Tonic Cake Now, some may say I didn’t make this because there is no photographic…

The Book I read in August

August was a slow month with reading, it took me a while to read just one book. In fact it took me all month to read one book. Its not my aim to read just one book a month, I promise. I am trying to get better and back into my rhythm. Everything But The…

Books I read in April,

Oh hey May how are you? I personally think this year should slow down a bit, we are almost 6 months through the year and it’s cold and wet and can it just be summer now? That week spell really wasn’t enough. Anyhow, I have read 3 books in April, all of which were 4…

July Bakes

Opps, it appears I have posted this one a bit later than expected, sorry about that. I would love to say I knew where the time went, but its been a busy few months for me and as it happens, July is the month I moved and started a new job so its actually understandable…

Books I read in July

Ok so I was going to name this book I read in July as technically I only finished one book this month. Which is sad to admit. However, I changed my mind as I did read 1/2 an ebook but it just didn’t seem to be nearing the end. So will talk about that also….

June – Why I didn’t bake for a month

I am ashamed with myself if I am honest. I just scrolled through my pictures (to remind myself of my bakes to help with my June bakes post) and I realised that I had a very (very) busy June….so alas this means I made no cake! NO CAKE!! I am shocked with myself to be…

The Girl in the Ice – Robert Bryndza

Another book I have to thank Ali (The Sunday Feeling) for. I swear I get all of my books from that gorgeous lady! She thought I would enjoy it as its the first book in a detective series and she knows I have a strong love for the Helen Grace series, which is worth a…
