Encore Valentine

I've loved reading Encore Valentine by Adriana Trigiani as I love the way she writes. I love the way she describes her characters and the places in her books.

Encore Valentine is a follow up to Very Valentine and continues the story of the Roncalli family and the many other colourful characters in the two books set against the Angelini Shoe Company. This books takes the reader to Italy, New York and Argentina and are beautifuly described. Her discription of the shoes alone makes me want to go out and buy new shoes and I'm not even a shoe person. Though saying that if it was a book set against a Hand Bag company I'll be in second heaven and probably very poor.

Encore Valentine is lovely read. It didn't take long to read and is a feel good book. I recommend this book to any Adriana Trigiani fan and to any one who loves New York, shoes and Italy.

And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.

Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.

However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
