About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog!

My name is Barbara, although I much prefer my nick-names of Bob or Bobbie.

I’ve been married to Terry for 46 years we have a son, two beautiful granddaughters (hello Zoe Rose and Lilly Grace), two grown-up grandsons (Hello Kip and Tris!), and a lovely daughter-in-law. Our son, his wife and their two daughters live in Australia, but his sons (from a previous relationship) have recently returned to the UK.

I have an ongoing love affair with anything furry (oh misses!) dogs, cats, and Koalas being my favourites. My other passions are vintage children’s books, postcards, vintage games and nursery china designed by Eileen Soper and Chloe Preston.

My hobbies are attending fetes, book fairs and auctions. I also enjoy visiting wildlife sanctuaries, walking, and of course reading.

I ran March House Books for approximately twenty years, but the business closed on my retirement in July 2015. I continue to blog under the name March of Time Books where I look forward to your visits and comments.   

I blog about things that interest me such as vintage books, postcards and ephemera, but you will also find me musing on many other topics. I include guest posts from time to time so if you have something you wish to share, please get in touch.  I prefer the posts to be about childhood, vintage books, nature and so on, but I do include other items such as new books. If you would like to contribute something, please contact me with your idea. I will give you a yes or no as quickly as I can but please check with me before emailing the post.

Thanks to everyone who calls in. Comments are always welcome. Barbara x
