This is my reading pile for the next few weeks. 

I am intrigued by the title 'Your Second Life Begins When You Realise You Only Have One', so I treated myself on our recent holiday. 

Gillian McAllister is someone whose blog I read for years, who then became a bestselling author a couple of years ago. This is her third book. I really enjoyed the first two, so I'm looking forward to reading this one. 

I'm hoping the Mindful Walking book might motivate me to go for a daily walk. I've also discovered the Health app on my iphone (that I've had for three years, and never noticed it before!), which apparently can count my steps. I'm always planning to go for a walk and never do. I find it difficult to motivate myself to walk without a destination, and the cake shop kind of defeats the object.....

I love this time of year. Dark evenings, curtains drawn and lights on early, cosy blankets on the sofa, hot chocolate and piles of books. Bliss. What could be better than Christmas books? 

I'm looking for different ways with vegetables, as I'm vegetarian and I want to try a low carb diet. Without meat and carbs, those veggies have got to work hard to be interesting! The Lisa Riley book was a bargain buy from the Oxfam book shop, it looks ok at first glance so we'll see. I was so looking forward to the Veggiestan book arriving. I ordered it used from Amazon so it was cheap, and having already borrowed it from the library I know it has some recipes in it that I'd like to make. Guess who ordered the wrong version? I need to either send it back or learn German.
