    Sounds like a good month. My book of the month was also Olly Jarvis’ book, I really loved it. Amanda.

    Looking forward to your thoughts on Spectacles Lindsay (I remember your write up of the Cheltenham Festival – sounded a great interview/talk).

    I also remember that Blackberry Swirl Yoghurt Loaf. Thanks for linking up – I’ll be able to check back for the recipe 😀

    I’ve heard a few people mention the Olly Jarvis book, I like a good legal thriller and they seem to have fallen out of fashion more recently. I’ll add this to my wish list!
