Books of 2014

I'm pretty chuffed with my book-reading of the past year; 56 in all, not including recipe books and the like. (Maybe I should include those for this year? Hmm). Anyway, it looks like it was a good mix of fiction/non-fiction, and I had the joy of discovering a few new-to-me authors, such as Barbara Comyns and Paul Magrs, which, quite frankly, is the best thing about working part time in a library.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

Promo Crimbo cards all written, stamped and sent; all 119 of them :-o Lovely stamp designs this year, too.

This year's lovely Crimbo stamps are by the uber-talented Andrew Bannecker. See them all here. Blimey, that would be the most amazing job ever. (Hint, hint, Royal Mail).

Long Time, No See

Hello, Blog.

I know, I know, I'm a terrible owner; you'll be calling the RSPCBlogs on me soon. In my defence, things have been rather crazy on the work front lately. But, all work has been completed and I have had a couple of rather more sedate weeks drawing up my Christmas card (fun), catching up on my accounts (not so fun), and taking the opportunity for a bit of a breather. Next on the cards is quite a lot of shameless plugging and updating my websites/portfolios. In the meantime, have a lovely winter sunrise from this morning:

I remember there was a lot of blue alcohol and everyone wore my glasses.

Minecraft pumpkins, last minute witch costumes, way too much blue alcohol. Happy Halloween!

Lighthouse selfie, selfie #southforelandlighthouse

Found an amazing tea shop in Bexhill yesterday, The Little British Tea Shop. This is the savoury tea for two: three types of sandwich, mini pork pies, homemade black pudding and pork and onion scotch eggs (sesame seeds in the coating - yum), and cheese an

...plenty of sunshine, cake, walking and sight seeing. Lovely.

(Slightly disappointing amount of restraint on the ice cream, though. Pity.)
