Story Time


I found this vintage children's book a few weeks ago and have just fallen in love the vibrant illustrations. I am yet to read it to the girls, perhaps tonight.





I finished this book last night, which is yet another book about foreigners renovating and living in rural France. I found it to be an easy and enjoyable read.

The next book on my nightstand is this book. It's about the women who were left behind in Australia, while the men went to war and how they coped. It is told by the women, recalling the heartaches, triumphs, and the strengths.

What are you reading?
