When you're struggling to buy a gift for someone you can't go wrong with a book - and we all know dads are notoriously difficult to shop for.

A post-Christmas book haul

You can never have too many books, although I do need to spend some time reorganising my bookshelves before I go back to work next week. Y'see, I had some pennies and vouchers left under my Christmas tree and so it would have been rude not to buy seven new books, right? Feast your eyes… Continue reading A post-Christmas book haul

In case I've not mentioned it enough already, I turn 30 at the end of the month - eek!
