The Back of the Book: It’s the weekend!
Forget supermarket aisles, traffic jams and chores. Instead, reinstate the tea party, write proper letters, celebrate the seasons with local or home-grown food and drink, or even take your neighbour’s dog for a walk. This book is packed with ideas that will help restore the balance in your life, reconnect you to the seasons and other people, and – quite literally – not cost the earth.
NotJustLaura’s Review: I’ve bought this book for a couple of friends and family members who’ve been having a bit of a tough time and finally decided that it was time to read it for myself.
Ms Thompson offers her own philosophy on weekends with ideas for specific seasons or which are suitable all-year-round. This is an incredibly warm, friendly book and very readable. I’m going to hang onto this copy and try out some of the suggestions myself.
