Trying Top Model

As I continue to try new crafts when I got enough spare time one thing I’ve always wanted to do is drawing and colouring.Trying and failing to draw something I looked at made me decide to give up.

Then one day I saw this

top model pocket

Where inside you get one page finished and after that a few that you can finish yourself. So I decided to give it a go

This is Maxy’s finished page

This is my first effort at Top Model

Book Review: All Creatures Great and Small


Having watched every single episode of All Creatures and being a huge fan of the Farnon brothers, I simply had to read the books!

This book is actually the two books “If Only They Could Talk” and “It Shouldn’t Happen To A Vet” published in one

I couldn’t get over how close to the book the first series was written. Having watched them a number of times I noticed a couple of things changed for the TV show for better effect but nothing that was annoying.

The one big difference was the description of Siegfried. In the book he is portrayed as younger with a moustache. Robert Hardy is simply brilliant as Siegfried and I wouldn’t change him for the world though.

I give this book 5/5
