Why Cleaning Has Meaning: Bringing Wellbeing Into &hellip by Linda Thomas
This book is much more than a how-to of dirt removal.

If you need inspiring before you tackle a seasonal clean up, this could be the motivation you need.

When I first opened this book my heart sank. Where were the chapters? Starters, Pasta, Meat, etc etc. It seemed chaotic, and I didn't really expect much of it.

This is a book to buy if you have a love of vintage tea sets and tea shops and are nostagic for the refinements of times past. I have had my copy for years and love it. Plenty of lovely cake recipes as well as tasty little tips like flavoured butters to have with sandwiches, how to make a summer tea punch or a winter fireside teatime. If you want to make a special celebration tea, give your children an inventive homemade party or just indulge yourself. This is the book for you.
