Face to Face

by sandra Glover. Published by Andersen Press.

Someone once said to me ‘Don’t you just hate it when you start reading a book and then realise you’ve read it before.’ I looked at her blankly – surely that would never really happen; surely you could never read that many books! But it happened to me last night. This is what I remember about Face to Face by Sandra Glover.

I never thought I’d pick up a book only to discover I’d read it before and had forgotten. Well, my memory is crap and I’m reading more than I used to, so I suppose it was bound to happen. I was in the library, saw a book by Sandra Glover and knowing that I like her books, I picked it up. ‘This seems familiar’ I thought when I started reading it last night. And yes, I have read it before, so this is a remembered review really as I didn’t read it again.

This is a story of Adelle who begins a new school but doesn’t feel comfortable making new friends. The first page begins with her worrying about her fat thighs, and at first I was worried that this was going to be another ‘Teenagers – you mustn’t diet too much because it is bad for you’ type book; but it wasn’t at all. There is so much more to her character than worrying about being fat, to the point where it is literally haunting. And I completely didn’t guess what the twist in the story was going to be. I think it’s revealed about half way through and I was totally surprised.

I’d definitely recommend this book for young adults.

Cath Kidston gift ideas for Mothers’ Day

I was given this beautiful set of Cath Kidston hand creams and some beautiful Gift Baskets for Women for my birthday last year, and it occurred to me what a lovely gift anything by Cath Kidston would be for Mothering Sunday. Now, oddly enough, this gift also has been listed as one of the best gifts for tattoo artists, which quite left me flummoxed. Either way, her products combine the two things that make the perfect present – something pretty and something practical….

Making a social outdoor dining area
September 16, 2018
We have been dragging our heels for ages over buying a new set of outdoor furniture. Our old wooden table and chairs are well and truly rotting away. We have also had it in our minds to build a verandah at the back of the house, leaning against the kitchen wall. However, each spring has come along and we’ve ended up spending any spare money we’ve had on a holiday instead. So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
