Half way through the year already! Half of June was taken up holidaying in Northern California. I know, I still haven’t got round to blogging about it but I have to sort out photos first, and that’s a tall order with over a thousand taken. It is a beautiful part of the world and I really recommend it, even if it’s sometimes foggy. Even then, you only need to drive a little bit inland and bam, beautiful weather again!

Don’t forget you can enter to win one of these books (a new copy, not a dog-eared, pre-read one!). Just scroll to the bottom to enter. It’s open internationally.
Here’s what made it onto the blog…
