Gosh its ages since I updated this - prompted to now by the prospect of BCUK's NSSSS (& 3 glasses red wine!)

Like many people I love reading but don't somehow seem to have as much time to do it as I'd like. BC is great as you get loads of recommendations for books & authors, so when I do get chance to read I'll, hopefully, pick books I'll love.
I'm a bit of a list-maker (ok control freak, lol) so seeing where a book goes after I've read it is, well, just great fun!

When not reading I love being outdoors, walking, running, playing in the mud (I home-ed my kids & do some work for the Wildlife Trust, so this is obligatory!).

The picture is my dog Pippin, a very badly trimmed Schnauzer. She likes walking & mud too (but not running too much, or reading come to think of it!)

- Thanks cliff1976 for this
