Break out!!!!

I just finished reading Breakout- How i escaped the Exclusive Brethren by David Tchappat. It was such an interesting book. I am always interested as to different customs and beliefs in different religions, but especially the brethren as we live next door to one of there churches ( not sure if they call them churches????)

The author really has done so well after leaving his family and life at aged 19 to pretty much start again out in a world that he had been kept away from his whole life.

Hard day playing Playdoh

Lily loves to play play-doh but she was just too tired on Sunday afternoon. It would be great if she didn't have a day sleep anymore but she obviously still needs it . Next year she will go to pre-school two full days , they still have a rest there in the afternoon but gee she going to be one tired little girl at 3pm.

*The 19Th Wife- David Ebershoff(Library)
*The Valley- Di Morrissey
* Stolen Innocence- Elissa Wall
Sorry about the bad photo my camera doesnt want to play today.

Her Mothers Thighs- Dara Chadwick

This book is really helpful, with a daughter aged nearly 9 I really want her to be comfortable and happy in her own skin. I realise that she may not be,I'm sure there will be issues. Its a little scary to think i have children old enough to be pre-pubescent.
