#MySundayPhoto 07/06/2015

Carrying on the Canada theme from last Sunday’s my photo here is another. This photo was taken as we were on the way to Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario.

The Wishing Chair Collection by Enid Blyton

The Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton is my favourite childhood book of all time. I believe I was 8 or 9 when I got it for Christmas and I couldn’t put it down. There is something about Enid Blyton’s books that turn me back into a kid. The adventures she used to write about were were just amazing and took…
