Time to start afresh!

I can't believe it has been over a year since I started this blog! Things kind of fell by the wayside, and I spent more time reading, than even thinking about writing reviews or beading! Anyway I would like to make a fresh start on things.

In the last year, we have had a new addition to the family. Joel was born in December. And after a worrying start, things are going very well. He is a very good baby, and his big brother Luke loves him to bits! 

I haven't touched beads for a while now, but with Mother's Day coming up, I think I might get them out this week and make some goodies for presents. I had some ideas for my mum and mother in law ages ago, but no doubt I will make something totally different when the time comes. But that is the fun of it!

So, I was going to restart my reviews with the next book that I finished, but I thought I could not miss writing a review for the book that I finished recently (see the next post). I am currently reading two books at once, which is something I have made a rule of not doing for many years. But I have one book that I read in bed, or wherever, and one is in Joel's room for breastfeeding time. I've got to make the most of those quiet moments! Anyway, the breastfeeding book has some selection criteria attached.
It must be:

1. Easy to hold. So not too thick, or most hardcovers would be out unless they are slim.

2. Print must not be too small. Given that I am reading in the middle of the night by the bedside light, and with the book on the other the side of the baby, it has to be easy to read.

3. Something that is easy to pick up and put down reading wise. So something with short chapters or breaks in the chapters.

So currently, I am reading "The Time Traveller's Wife", which fits these criteria admirably.

So cheers to the "relaunch" in a way, of my blogging! We will see if I can be more regular with posting this time!
