Guess What I'm Reading ......


Well this is the only clue you'll need!!

And the book I'm currently reading .....




..... is







Through the Kitchen Window by Susan Hill.  Now do you get the clue?

I've had this for years, it's a sweet little book with brilliant illustrations.


I sit poring over them for far too long.


AND ... it has recipes, well I mean what more could you want from a book  :-)

I got it down off the shelf last night when I wanted something easy for a quick bedtime read, it was nice to go back to a book I have read over and over again, some books are like old friends, not that I sit my friends on the shelf .... well not often  ;-)

  1. Do you have Susan Hill's The Magic Apple Tree? That is a beautiful book too.

    1. I've not read that one, or even heard of it. I'll have to watch out for it.

  7. You snuggle into them like an old sofa in front of the fire! One of my favourite Autumn reads.

  8. A great book, just looked into mine and the inscription in the front says "Christmas 1984 To Gilly from Pat with love" I love the drawings and as Katie says "you snuggle into them like an old sofa" - perfect!

    Can you recommend any other books on the theme of the Elizabeth West hovel in the hills amd garden in the hills which I've read both of and the cottage diary one I loved too I find it hard to pick out books like this?

    1. There's also Elizabeth West's 'Kitchen in the Hills', which I love, mostly recipes in that one. A set of books I really like are the 'Down to Earth series of books, starting with 'The Year of the Cornflake' by Faith Addis. Another favourite of mine is 'My Small Country Living by Jeanine McMullen.

      If I think of any more I'll let you know :-)

  11. Laura - not quite the same as the Hovel books, but wonderful reading, would be the books written by Derek Tangye, about growing flowers and potatoes, tomatoes etc in deepest Cornwall (Minack). A wonderful series and unputdownable, especially if you like cats and donkeys too.
