Baby, It’s A Bookshop Barge

Today I feel I am Charlie Bucket. At the beginning of January I felt like his old decrepit grandparents sitting upright in bed and eating cabbage soup for dinner being as dull as a beige polo shirt but now I am vibrant, prosperous young Charlie with his golden ticket. Only mine doesn’t allow me an endless…

Jan-you-not-uary

How vile is January? Does anyone else feel like all of a sudden every ounce of joy and happiness has just been torn from their lives in some sick post Christmas emotional burglary? Because I do. This is the first full winter I have spent in England for three years and this past week I…

A Touch Of Honesty

Hi Friends Firstly, let me start off by saying that I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Years spent doing whatever it is that makes you happy, being with your family or friends, listening to dreadful Christmas music or eating copious amounts of high-calorie goods.

What Can Happen In A Year

It’s crazy how much can happen in a year isn’t it? I started 2017 with completelllly different expectations, ideas and goals and it’s incredible how little control we really have over our lives and the paths they take.

Two Artphobes Walk Into a Gallery

Hey friends !!  So it’s no secret that I am all about books, books and more books. Due to travelling I’ve had to keep my library small and select which hurts me deeeeeeply because that means I have to give away books that I’ve read instead of displaying them and giving them the attention they…

Golden Linings
