I’m still snowed under with stuff to do, and about to set off again on the long haul south to teach (and judge at the British Dressage Winter Championships – yay!), so just a quick book review this week. Witchy Business by Eve Paludan My rating: 4 of 5 stars I picked this up because […]

I am so snowed under with stuff to do right now, unfortunately blogging is taking a bit of a back seat. Summer finally arrived in the Highlands, and that means when not working, its all hands on deck in the garden. As we have incredibly long days – currently daylight at around 4am, sunset after […]

I hesitated about reviewing this book, but decided that even a 3 star review can be useful to an author – I felt I had enough positive to say to balance the negative to make it worth it, so here it is. Epicentre by Chris Andrews My rating: 3 of 5 stars Grace is a […]

By the time this post goes live, I will be on the road, driving from North Scotland to Southern England for the first time this year. It’s a 650 mile, 12 hour drive, and I’m doing it in my little horsebox so I have my own mobile accommodation, what with COVID restrictions still in place. […]
