I cannot believe we are in December! The year has flown by. And every month I have enjoyed picking my book as part of Laura's The Year in Books.
My year has looked like this:
January: A Meal in Winter by Hubert Mingarelli
February: The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
March: The Light Years by Elizabeth Jane Howard
April: The Letter for the King by Tonke Dragt
May: Fox Encounters in the Wild by Jim Crumley
June: The Search Warrant by Patrick Modiano
July: Marking Time by Elizabeth Jane Howard
August: Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain
September: Findings by Kathleen Jamie
October: The Hog's Back Mystery by Freeman Wills Crofts
November: Limoncello and Linen Water by Tessa Kiros
December: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Over the course of the year I have read and enjoyed lots more , especially H is for Hawk and I Capture the Castle and luckily my pile of books is healthily growing so there's plenty for the coming months!

Oh dear. Break in transmission. Entirely down to human rather than technical fault. Ahem. Anyway to make up for it how about some nice photos of what happened in those intervening days?
Carlingford in the non-rain. It had rained for weeks before. It has rained for weeks after. But that day it stopped. That day it was sunny and that day was lovely. We walked around the town and came across a huge antiques shop where, I have to admit, I was in seventh heaven.
The Advent calendar is strung in its usual place along the stairs and over the prints. This year I added numbers on to the little envelopes but otherwise its done pretty well considering this is its third year. It could become a tradition, like the cornflake packet star Kevin made for our first ever Christmas tree and now it's used every year...
P.S. I love all my sisters - I am lucky to have three!
