Book reviews and blog-resting

It's been a while since I posted - the reason being our imminent relocation. It's been a painful process, coming to terms with moving away from everything and everyone here, but I think I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel - and it's not the train! We finally found a house, after 6 months' searching and, although it is not the dream house I imagined we would be buying, it is very practical - near to the schools, shops and train station, so I am hopeful it will all turn out OK. We are having a wall knocked down to make an open-plan living area, so that is quite exciting...

A couple of book reviews

good book
This was a really easy, light read - perfect for the beach, if you are going.

And this one was a brilliant read. Not the kind of book I usually choose - normally I am put off by the word "spy" in the title, but it was full of suspense and had a twist at the end that I didn't see coming, but I can be a bit slow at times! Anyway, I can recommend it and will be looking out for the sequel by this author.

Due to my preoccupation at the moment for all things removal-related, I have absolutely no desire (or space in my brain) to create things. I will therefore be "resting" my blog until after the move and will hopefully have some things to show in the Autumn. Have also got my eye on an Art Clay Silver course in my "new" local town:) I got my tools out one last time this week (before I pack them safely away in one of the many boxes that our house is "growing") to do a couple of repairs and make a new bag charm for Cathy, as she was visiting this week and kindly helped with a fair bit of packing.

Thanks to everyone who has been reading my blog so far - comments always welcome.
Back soon!

I wish you all the best with your move. I can relate to the sadness you're feeling as you relocate. It's funny, we also knocked out a wall in our house last year. I was here for 3 days and knew that THAT wall had to come down! I wrote about it here:
