It’s a Shepherd’s Life

Doing some nature reading for Non fiction November and I had a brain wave to read these two gorgeous books James Rebanks’ farms in the Lake District whilst W. H.

Currently reading

The top two books are ones I’m loving the most. The others are backup. Vicious is so damn good and the second V E Schwab book I’ve read/reading recently.

Postcards of Edward VII 1901 – 1910

A couple of postcards of King Edward VII that I acquired recently. This for me is what a King should look like. Regal and very impressive. The first one has a lovely message on the back. This card was sent to a Miss Coles, c/o Mrs Buxton in Surrey.  I love the part of the … Read morePostcards of Edward VII 1901 – 1910
