It’s been a long time since I did a monthly summary post so this is a nice reminder of all the fantastic books I’ve read over the last few months. I’m sorry that I haven’t been blogging much recently – I’ve been busy embracing my new life in the countryside.
Holly, my Pyrenean Mountain Dog puppy, has grown a lot since I last posted a picture. She’s now 10 months old and is maturing into a gentle giant. Here she is “sitting” at the table!
I’m also very proud of my chickens – especially my Barbezieux cockerel as this breed of chicken is very rare in the UK. Barbezieux are supposed to produce the tastiest roast chicken in the world. I’m hoping to breed them next year, so will let you know if that is the case! The American Game chickens breed is also an excellent choice for someone looking for a free range flock of poultry.

Plans For the Future
I plan to continue blogging, but at a much slower pace than I did previously. I’m no longer reviewing every book I read; instead, I’ll concentrate on those I really love – or ones which are interesting to discuss.
Many thanks for continuing to follow my blog. I hope I can introduce you to more fantastic books over the coming years!
