March Round Up – Lockdown

Well what an extremely strange and scary month this has been, in the face of the recent pandemic I have found myself restricted to home working, going out only once a day either for a run or essential shopping or walking or my dog, Buddy.  Toilet rolls are like gold-dust and I can’t get couscous anywhere for ‘love nor money’! However, during this lockdown I have found myself with more time to spare, I have been much more proactive with my reading and I have been able to dip into my art journal with much more gusto than usual.  

March Book Purchases
