January Update

Just a quick update

I started my new job on Monday 23rd . Yippee!!!!

There is a lot to learn and take in but so far enjoying it. Feels slightly strange going to work somewhere different as I spent the last 13 years going to one part of the town and now I am in another. Also really strange not sitting behind a desk in an office. (For the purposes of this blog I would rather not say where I work and what I do but it is something totally different to what I did before). But good all the same.

On the creating/craft front I haven't done anything for a while. I think once I get my self into the new working routine again my creating juices will return. But until then, I'm OK with that. I'm still looking in blog land and getting inspiration from so many talented people and I am constantly checking out My Craft Channel and 2 Peas which have some fantastic videos at the moment. Also my latest monthly kit from Sarah's Cards is calling me - "" Lesley - scrapbook me, scrapbbok me !!!!!""

In terms of my new goals for 2012, I'm working well on a few aspects but really bad on others. For example I've been making more contact with friends so that is a big tick, but reading and being creative is a big cross. I'm making more time looking after myself -ie looking after my skin, wearing make up etc but feel as if I haven't made much time for this blog.

I'm not going to beat myself up on it yet though as still only the end of the first month of the year. I still feel it is a year of More and starting my new job is a great new start for me.

A very good evening from Pickle Land

Hope to speak to you very soon

Love Lesley xx

Book Review January - The Broken Man by Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox is not an author I would normally pick, but I received the book as a present from my mother in law.

The main theme is about the consequences of domestic abuse.  It tells the story of Adam, a young boy who had to bear things no little boy should ever see, and also the tale of Anne who was abused by her husband.  Though the theme was about domestic abuse, it was wasn't graphic or gory which I was glad about.  The tale weaved between Anne's story and Adams story which interlinked, and was a fairly easy read.  I was slightly disappointed with the ending of the book and thought it hadn't fully ended the story of Anne and didn't even mention how she would have felt about finding out her husbands childs link to her best friend.  I also found the aforementioned coincidence too far fetched.

Overall it was an OK book.  Not my favourite book of all time, but very readable all the same.  As the first book I have read of hers I don't know if this is the usual ty…
