Oh You Pretty Things – Socks

This week Oh You Pretty Things is hosted over at Keynko, and her theme is socks. You know, those things you use to keep your feet warm. Socks have got good haven’t they? As a kid I only remember my virgin knee highs (as we called them at school – the white, pull up socks with a small holey pattern) or other boring plain ones. My kids have monsters, dinosaurs, hearts, flowers, and all manner of characters on theirs.

Oh You Pretty Things – Books

This weeks Oh You Pretty Things is hosted over at Keynko and the theme is books.

I love books. I cannot imagine life without reading. I inhale words, when on a roll I can read a dozen books month, and when not nose deep in papery type I can be found digesting the digital version. Yes, I do read e-books, mostly because my budget can’t keep up with my need for new material.
