The Go To Expert by Heather Townsend and Jon Baker

I’ve just finished reading this book which I am sure I started at the beginning of the year.  I know I started reading it while on the train to London which was in December or January time.  However, I don’t travel on the train on a frequent basis so my reading also got less.  I’ve currently found a new time to read, while putting the girls to sleep as long as it is in a kindle format.

A Mumpreneur Guide by Annabel Karmel

One of the best things I like to read about is inspiring stories of people (especially women) who have achieved amazing success against all odds. This book is full of motivational stories like this, starting obviously with:

Annabel Karmel – Cookbooks for healthy food ideas for babies and children at different stages of growing up.  This is where I first found out about Annabel Karmel.  I was all into cooking healthy nutritious food for my babies. Continue reading “A Mumpreneur Guide by Annabel Karmel”

The pursuit of Happiness and why it’s making us anxious

The Pursuit of Happiness and why its making us anxious – By Ruth Whippman

2016-06-08 14.01.54

There are lots of things I want to say about this book.  Firstly, I have seen lots of things on the internet selling courses on how to better yourself but I had never realised that the pursuit of happiness was such a big industry.  Secondly, I had no idea about the happiness work project by the shoe company Zappos or more specifically Tony Hsieh and especially not about the downtown project in Las Vegas.  Thirdly, I had no idea Mormons were so ‘happy’ and such a big community in Utah, although, they do seem to be happy by popping anti-depressant pills.  I do have the urge to look up all these three things just to understand the logic of it all. To be honest I don’t think I’ve ever thought about happiness.  I do think about bettering myself but that’s as far as it goes.  Then again maybe its all part of the same thing, this inward thinking about yourself rather than thinking about the community in large or other people in general.

Thanks for the memories

By Cecelia Ahern

This is the first non fiction book I have read in ages. With a death in the family, the title seemed appropriate to how I was feeling right now and I thought it might help put my jumbled feelings into words.
