April round up

April came and went in the blink of an eye.  It began with a meal to celebrate my step father in laws 60th Birthday on Easter Sunday.  On Easter Monday my friends Rob and Sue came round ours for a meal.

I went to Ashby de le Zouch with my friend Chris and we had a lovely lunch in a a cafe found up an alley and it was lovely to sit in the sunshine and have a catch up.  I also went to Lichfield with AJ for a couple of hours and we had a lovely meal and I was able to take some lovely photos.

I completed my book My Husband next door which I enjoyed and I need to review here.

On the craft front I have actually done some Project Life pages a day also participated in Jennibellies Art Swap.  My first swap was with Francine from Colorado in the US.  She sent me a lovely piece of art work which I will treasure.   Again I will have to show on this blog when I get chance to photograph it and load up on this blog.  I MUST MAKE TIME TO DO THESE THINGS, I shout at myself.

Other than that I have had a pretty boring month.  Work is getting me down and I'm feeling abit low in general.  I just haven't felt like doing much at all and I feel exhausted all the time.   I am also beating myself up for having all the plans in my head but nothing coming to fruition.   It's self defeating I know and I need to give myself a big kick up the butt.

Anyway good evening from Pickle Land

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…
