I’m One!

What September 27th Means To Me

This is a life related post – so if you wish to skip over it please feel free! I wasn’t sure about posting this but I felt the need to write it so why not click publish.

27th September 1939, Joanne Christine Shaw was born, she survived the blitz just outside Birmingham, did teacher training in Devon where she met and fell in love with Roy Hunt, had 3 children during the 1960s, including my mum, and then in 1987, just a few years after she turned 48 I was born, her very first grandchild.

My New Look

When I started blogging at the beginning of the month I wasn’t sure what I would be talking about, or if there was anything in particular I would focus on so I adapted my theme to be about me. The tag line stating the blog was about me, and the header image being some of my favourite pictures from visiting Bathsheba in Barbados, the island my paternal grandparents were originally from. I quickly discovered that my love of reading was shared by a wonderful community of book bloggers so I’ve made some updates to reflect the fact that I am focusing more on books. I will still blog about myself but my main focus will be books, and related things – so my header image is now my living room bookshelf.
