About meI am married with 3 children (23,21 & 14) and 3 grandchildren (5,4 & 6mths). My husband is a teacher, currently at a special needs school, although on extended sick leave as he battles cancer.
My 14 year old son is the only one living at home now, but the grandchildren just live a few streets away which is lovely.
I work part-time as a Child Restraint Trainer & Educator, and have a small business training child restraint technicians.
I love reading, my garden and craft - sewing, cross-stitch,scrapbooking and quilting.
I have a really long!! wish list to read, mostly from book reviews, unfortunately as I read 1 book I am adding several more to the list - oh well :o) Books are my life line at the moment, somewhere to disappear to when life isn't fair!
About my libraryI like to read a variety of books, about the only thing I don't read is fantasy and science fiction. Having said that, I read all the Harry Potter books when my son was reading them. Loved them!!
I have only included the last few books I have read in my library, and will add currently reading etc as I go, time spent adding previous books could be used reading! (or sewing). I am not a particularly fast reader, and don't have a lot of spare time to read but I just love discussing what I am reading, or have read :o)
My TBR is a list (several pages long) rather than BOMBS waiting to be read. As finances don't allow the purchase of many books I am an avid member of the Library, one day I may get around to putting all the TBRs on my wish list as a way of keeping track - rather than the sheets of A4 I currently keep adding to!
