Some of these books are favourite ones from my childhood, others I stumbled upon at our local library. Some were presents, and I bought a few after reading this post.


Welcome to my new Blog. I’m a prolific writer of lists.. Many of the jobs on the to-do-list never get touched, and most of the ‘favourite things’ lists get lost. I created this space as a place to jot down my thoughts and share them  with others. This may be a short-lived experiment, or I may still be writing down my ideas here in years to come. Join me and see where it takes us.
