Cosy Reading Night April 2020


Lauren and the Books has decided to host her Cosy Reading Night’s every other week while we’re all social-distancing. It’s a great idea but I doubt I will be taking part that frequently. I did join in in last Friday’s one though and had a lovely time 🙂

I made some tasty food, popped open a bottle of wine and got really cosy. Books, wine and food go together so well!
