I'm so glad I finally did!What They Say:Can the curvy girls have their cake and eat it?Meet best friends Pixie, Ellie, Katie and Jane. Fed up with always struggling to lose weight, they start a social club where size doesn’t matter. Soon it’s the most popular place to be – having fun instead of counting carbs. And the girls suddenly find their lives changing in ways they never imagined.But outside the club, things aren’t as rosy, as they struggle with the ups and downs of everyday life.In this funny, heart-warming read about normal women learning to love themselves, the curvy girls soon realise that no matter what life throws at them, together, anything is possible . . .What I Say:Well, Michele has done it again!

Bus Life Continues (aka, Why I'm a Rubbish Blogger)

Well, long time no blog. Sorry guys. I officially suck at this!

Here's what we've been up to...

The bus now has a completed bedroom (except for the back wall, which will soon have a door put in it that will lead to the new bathroom). It is gorgeous, like a little log cabin, all wood and cosy. I will post photos soon, I promise. The floor is stunning but the long shelves are my favourite bit, they hold a lot of books!

The lounge is taking shape slowly. We have ripped out the old settee, moved the table and chairs (which are actually the original coach seats and table!) to the other side of the bus, we have built the new window frames (we are shrinking the windows) and 3/4 of the ceiling is up.

We are awaiting the new light fixtures and a few bits of wood in order to finish it and when it's done, I promise I will post pics. For now, there are a few on my Fa…

My Review of The Secret of You by Victoria Connelly

What They Say:

Journalist Anna McCall has never understood people who collect things so, when she’s asked to interview local collector and eccentric, William Kitson, she isn’t exactly looking forward to the experience.

But she soon falls under the charm of Fox Hill Manor as well as its owner, even though she thinks there’s something very strange about the collection there. What exactly is William hiding in the unused wing of the manor house? And is it a story Anna could sell?

Set in the beautiful Cotswolds, The Secret of You is a novel about love, trust and antiques.

What I Say:

I've spoken to a few people about how to review an Audio book and have come to the conclusion that I will review just as I would for a normal book. It is, after all, the same story. It&…
