Are you taking part in the Big Garden Birdwatch?

One of my favourite things to do when im not reading or researching is just watching the birds that come and go in the garden.  Im convinced its very theraputic and good for the soul. I spend far too much money on feeders and  food for them to help them through the winter until they can find food themselves again.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Yes its true! I did finally succumb and buy myself a Kindle with some Christmas vouchers. And do you know what? I think I might really, secretly, LOVE IT!

Blogging about The Brontes

I’ve been in love with all things  Bronte for ooh such a good many years, about 30 or more i reckon.  I haven’t read all of their books just Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights (though i’m not sure i finished it or understood it but thats beside the point) My love for those three young ladies has known no bounds so I thought i’d do a series of blog posts celebrating them.
