I’m writing this review as I get ready to GO ON HOLIDAY!!! Can’t wait, though it does mean I won’t be around to post much for the next few weeks – goodness knows, I’ve earned the break, even though I love both of my jobs. We are heading off to tour the Inner Hebrides, so […]

#BookReview – NINJA SCHOOL MUM by Lizzie Chantree #humour

I’m back again with another review (July/August are manic months at work, with lots of travelling which means lots of reading, not so much writing).
