Another Year in England, Another Yearly Wrap Up

Well then! Today marks my 17th (SEVENTEENTH!!!) move-iversary! I have lived in England for 17 years today. That is madness!

 

This year has been the most eventful of my life! It has been the happiest, most secure and fun year I have experienced in my 39 (nearly 40!!) years. I have loads of photos to share with you. Most of you have shared the past year with me through my blog posts but if you haven't, here are the highlights.

 

In June last year Steve and I got together. In July I got my 4th tattoo, my 3D butterfly with SW on the bottom. In August we got engaged. In October we got our Pomeranian puppy Bella who is basically our first born child and we adore her. In January we got 2 baby bunnies and in April (I think) we got our Pomeranian boy Magic who we adore just as much! My brother and his wife welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Declan in November. We had our first Christmas together and it was magical! Since then, we've just been living our life, laughing and smiling every day. Steve makes me smile when I don't think I can. He wipes my tears when I am sad and he cuddles me whenever I want! Life is good!

 

I have been to several book events this year! I finally go to meet Sheila O'Flannagan, Lindsey Kelk and Holly Smale and Steve came with me to Milly Johnson's book launch! I took Steve to his first ever concert too, The Shires in December. I went to see LeAnn Rimes and it was amazing as she always is! I went to see Donny Osmond (again!) in January and met up with Manda and Jo  and saw several other Os friends too!

 

So, photos!

When Lewis Harley has a health scare in his early forties, he takes it as a wake-up call. So he and his  wife Charlotte leave behind life in the fast lane and Lewis opens the antique shop he has dreamed of.

Blog Tour Stop - The Food of Love by Amanda Prowse

Happy Christmas Eve and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Food of Love by Amanda Prowse.
What They Say:

Freya Braithwaite knows she is lucky. Nineteen years happily married to a man who still excites her, two beautiful teenaged daughters, and her dream career as a health food writer. Her home is filled with love and laughter, with a passion for food at its very core.

But no amount of love could have prepared Freya for the devastating impact of anorexia and bulimia on her family. In a desperate battle to rescue her youngest child from its clutches, Freya will do all she can to save her daughter, her marriage and her family. But how can she when food, the social glue of their family, is both the problem and the solution? Is Freya’s own obsession with clean eating partly to blame? And how can you save someone who doesn’t want to be saved? 

What I Say:

As always, I was excited at the prospect of a new Amanda Prowse novel. I knew I was in for an emotional read, her books always a…
