Alison writes about housekeeping, or homemaking. I don't think she minds being called either sort of blog. She writes honestly, and truthfully about her own life and issues, and she is searingly honest in places. Reading over her blog you will hear the pain and anguish she has gone through. And yet she still smiles. She still loves what she does.
The Spring House is Alison's latest Kindle book. It's a slim volume, no more than 50 pages long, but for all that it has a host of beautifully hyggely spring ideas. Alison's writing style is flowery, with lots of m'dears and rhetorical questions, because she writes her books in the same style as her blog. That's her way. It's the way that fresh blue gingham would write if it had a voice.
The book is divided into 11 very short chapters, little more than a couple of pages each. There are lists on preparing for Spring, ideas for Puttery treats to indulge in at Springtime, journal prompts, a reading list of fiction and non-fiction for Spring, recipes and a short introductory essay to set the scene.
I love her chapter on Making Memories. It's idealism in the best way: I know the chances of me getting to spend the morning in the garden are slim (duh, full time work) but I can aim to find coffee granule soap at a craft fair and indulge in that even if my fingers are dirty from the keyboard rather than planting seeds. I am, however, inspired enough by her to be Spring cleaning bit by bit (have you seen my kitchen recently?) and Alison is always keen to stress that we need to curate our lives or risk letting in too much noise and mess.
She isn't all about the work either.Read more ›
