The Gallery - Books

Here are two very different books which share a link



The link is my Grandad. He used to call me princess what a mess.  I am pretty sure that this wasn't because I looked like a dog, but more that I am a little bit messy. I would love to say that as an adult I have changed, but I haven't. The other book is my Masters thesis. Not a well read book by many, but it is dedicated to my lovely Grandad and my Nan. They encouraged me to work hard in school, and I am sure they would have been proud.

Frank Muir's books were superb! You've brought back memories with that one. Must find them for my kids...

Such a lovely post! I have no idea where my thesis is now, I think I was so relieved that it was all over, I put it away and haven't thought about it since. I have never heard of Frank Muir, but there are some books that remind me of my grandparents which is lovely
