In The 80's


Doesn’t the photo look great! A book lover’s delight, a treasure-trove of books.

It reminds me of the tiny bookshop tucked away in the corner of Padstow harbour, my favourite Cornish fishing village in the UK. The sweetest of elderly ladies ran the bookshop in the 1980’s (I was a young girl then though, so they could have only been in their 30’s!) and we often used to lose my Dad among the books, w Read more of this blog post »

“Whenever you're feeling lonely, remember that there are people in this world who bless every one of us before they go to sleep at night. They may have never met you, but their hearts go out to you. They are true angels.”
L.J. Kane

“Be patient with everyone you meet, for you may never know whether your words were the last they ever heard.”
L.J. Kane

“Decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it and believe it’s possible
for you. And then close your eyes and every day for several minutes, and visualize having what
you already want, feeling the feelings of already having it. Come out of that and focus on what
you’re grateful for already, and really enjoy it. Then go into your day and release it to the
Universe and trust that the Universe will figure out how to manifest it. “Jack Canfield”
Jack Canfield

“I am the literary equivalent of a Big Mac and fries.”
Stephen King

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
