~ our joyful moments - week 42 ~

I've finally finished reading The Luminaries (last year's Man Booker prize winner ...this year the winner was a Tasmanian author!) - what a slog it was.  I'm glad I finished but it was hard work  The book is looking pretty near my bed with some yellow banksia roses and my favourite beads though.

Karin has been baking again - her food is almost too pretty to eat I think!

We are finding the small joys in our lives and sharing them here and on IG

Have you read any good books recently?


  1. Well done for getting through 'the luminaries', it does look pretty with your roses & your beads. 'Narrow road to the deep north' is going to be on my Christmas holiday reading list. have you read it? My husband loved it so I'm keen- just need a chunk of time.
    And you're right, that baking does look too good to eat!

  2. Never heard of banksia roses before - so beautiful! :) Love to read, just finished Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (one of my favourite authors). Have a lovely week!

  3. I'm keen to read the Flanagan as well - so much reading I need to catch up on!

  4. both lovely - wish our banksia rose had put such a nice showing


I'd love to hear from you - in fact it will probably make my day
