Victoria Falls, Wester Ross

Image
You have to excuse these photo's because as you can see it was dreich horrible wet day that I ventured out to Victoria Falls, but I had driven past the sign and was determined to explore.  It was so dreich Daisy decided to stay at the cottage and read!

I am not particularly good with heights either, and coupled with the fact that I was conscious my camera was getting wet these are the best you are getting!

Autumn berries out early...

The waterfall was pretty spectacular and definitely worth a visit...I was pretty proud of myself and climbed right up to the top.



Loved this beautiful tree stump...

The colours here were absolutely stunning...

I was so impressed with the falls I walked back around for a second look...

Happy Book Birthday to the following new releases which have been added to my ever expanding To Be Read list:
Longbourn's Songbird by Beau North

South Carolina, 1948 - Elizabeth Bennet is looking forward to a life of few surprises on her family's farm. Longbourn is a place of comfort and quiet security, a haven from the heartache of her past, where she can sing to heart's content, comfortable in the cage she’s built for herself.

When Charles Bingley buys the property neighbouring Longbourn Farms, his best friend Will Darcy sees an opportunity he can't miss. The post-war economy is booming, and the young, ambitious tycoon is determined to reap the benefits...until a chance encounter in the Netherfield woods changes everything, making him question the man he is, and the man he wants to be.

If Will can look beyond his own rigid expectations, can Elizabeth learn to forgive and live fully, free from her cage? Longbourn’s Songbird is a vivid reimagi…

The Joanna Trollope Reading List

Image
Here is my Joanna Trollope Reading List.  So far I've only read one of these books, have a look at my review for Sense & Sensibility.

About the Author (taken from Goodreads)
Joanna Trollope was born on 9 December 1943 in her grandfather's rectory in Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire, England, daughter of Rosemary Hodson and Arthur George Cecil Trollope. She is the eldest of three siblings. She is a fifth-generation niece of the Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope and is a cousin of the writer and broadcaster James Trollope. She was educated at Reigate County School for Girls followed by St Hugh's College, Oxford. On 14 May 1966, she married the banker David Roger William Potter, they had two daughters, Antonia and Louise, and on 1983 they divorced. In 1985, she remarried to the television dramatist Ian Curteis, and became the stepmother of two stepsons; they divorced in 2001. Today, she is a grandmother and lives on her own in London.

From 1965 to 1967, she worked at the F…

Book Birthdays - 21st November 2017

It's Publication Day!
Happy Book Birthday to the following 4 books which have been added to my To Be Read pile:
The Scholar by JJ Anders

Anna is clearly different from others. With obvious physical differences and powerful abilities, she’s never quite fit in… anywhere. Having no knowledge of her parents, she sets out to discover her true origin. On the run for most of her life, she’s become a master at eluding capture, even a little cocky you might say. When a sticky situation forces her hand, she hitches a ride with a wizard, who whisks her away to another world, where, according to him, she’d been exiled from as a child. This new magical place seems oddly familiar as Anna discovers powerful enemies and treasured allies on her quest for answers. The dangerous journey thrust her headlong into the arms of Kriston, who finds himself caught between sworn-duty and insatiable curiosity.

The Call by Amanda Fleet
What if your ex-boyfriend called you desperately asking for life-or-death help…

Etsy - Gilmore Girls Edit (Part 1)

Image
We are HUGE Gilmore Girls fans in this house...I think it's because I have the same kind of relationship with my daughter (we've been just the 2 of us for a long time too!).  Rory & Lorelai say things at times and Daisy and I just look at each other and burst out laughing because it is so accurate!  The only thing we are missing is Luke, but I live in hope!

This is part 1 of my Gilmore Girls Etsy Edit, fabulous gifts for every Gilmore Girls fan.
Locket Set from Chainge the Subject Locket Set featuring the lyrics to the sentimental song from 'The Gilmore Girls'
You will receive two brass lockets. Inside one locket, "Where you lead..." and the other contains "...I will follow".
This is a great Mom daughter set or a great gift to share with that friend who watched The Gilmore girls with you. To reference Lorelai's addiction to coffee, a 3D silver coffee cup with a heart in the center, dangles alongside the locket. The locket measures 25mm (…
