My name is Barbara, although I much prefer my nick-names of Bob or Bobbie.
I’ve been married to Terry for 45 years, have a son, two beautiful granddaughters (hello Zoe Rose and Lilly Grace), two grown-up grandsons, and a lovely daughter-in-law. The only fly in the ointment is that they live in Australia and Terry and I live in the UK so it’s a bit of a long-distance relationship.
I have an ongoing love affair with anything furry (oh misses!) dogs, cats, and Koala bears being my favourites. My other passions are vintage children’s books, vintage games, nursery china (especially anything decorated with animals or children) with designs by Eileen Soper or Chloe Preston.
My ‘hobbies’ are attending fetes, book fairs, auctions, visiting wildlife sanctuaries, walking, and of course reading. Most (but not all) of the books featured on this blog are for sale on my website March House Books please call in if you have the time.
