I’ve never been good at making… Continue reading Bullet Journaling For the 21st Centuary

Soppy Sunday – A Sonnet by Alfred Lord Tennyson…

A few years ago I bought this book in Hay on Wye… (I have a thing for rescuing antique books by beloved authors from the unloving second hand shop) It’s called Tennyson’s Poetic Works and it part of The Globe Edtion published by Macmillan & Co. This book was published in 1899. The book didn’t… Continue reading Soppy Sunday – A Sonnet by Alfred Lord Tennyson…
