Summer Time in the Garden

Over the past few weeks we can all agree that the weather has been not quite ‘Summer’ weather. We have had a few great days of sunshine here and there, but when it has rained, well it has almost been like the heavens opened and flooded us all.  This mixture of warm and wet weather conditions has been perfect for…

Book Review: Terminal Life by Richard Torregrossa

When i first spotted this book, I really liked the look of the cover and with the little description of a suited hero novel. This made me think that the hero of the story is very smart, business- like and immaculately dressed.

Book Review: The Confession of Thomas Hawkins by Antonia Hodgson

A young, well-dressed man is dragged through the streets of London to the gallows at Tyburn. The crowds jeer and curse…

Happy Canada Day!

5 years ago, my husband, sister and I were in Peterborough, Ontario celebrating Canada Day. It was an amazing experience to be involved with their celebrations. The whole town got together and put on various displays, with a carnival feel to it. The one thing that amazed me was that everywhere was closed! So absolutely everyone could get involved with…
