January in pictures

A monthly feature where I share some pictures and only a few words about what has been going on in my life for the last month.

What I’ve been reading (though not necessarily completed) this month

Two family birthdays, two cakes and some Malaysian recipes

And two beautiful winter walks, one sunny (Dunham Massey) …

…and one very grey! (Hollingworth Lake and the Rochdale canal, and a very friendly pony)

I hope you had a good January. The days are starting to get a little longer here, so roll on spring!

  1. Books, cake and wonderful winter landscapes… Seems like a good month to me! How did you get on with Far From the Madding Crowd? I keep meaning to try one of Hardy’s novels.


    1. I know! I love Far From the Madding Crowd. I’ll be reviewing it shortly, but yes, it was an absolute joy to rediscover. My favourite Hardy novel is Jude the Obscure, but Tess of the D’Urbervilles would be a good starting point if you’ve yet to discover Hardy.
