Something I inherited from my Dad, is always wanting to read and learn as much as I can about a subject before jumping in feet first and taking on something new.
Now, since we’ve found the house of our dreams, and since I have been looking after my sister-in-law’s laying hens . . . my husband and I are thinking about getting our own hens (probably not before next year) . . . so I decided I need to read and do some research first.
I also spotted some tortoises in a local pet shop here the other week. I don’t know what it is about tortoises, but I’ve always dreamed of having one . . . so am also reading up on tortoises.
Now, I know the internet is full of free information, but I do enjoy having a few reference books to hand. So today I went on amazon and I have spent the gift voucher I received from one of my English groups and ordered all of the following (photos from amazon).
I’ll have lots of reading in store once my order arrives . . . and it will either spur me on or put me off the idea entirely ^^
