This was another one of my quick “2 minutes to pick a library book as the kids are getting noisy…….”
This time, It was the title that grabbed me – I wanted to know more about this Samuel Lake character.
The story is set in 1956 and follows the Lake family. When preacher Samuel is voted out by his less than pleased congregation (they are incensed by his inclusion of people from all walks of life in the church on the basis that they are all equal in the eyes of his God), the family returns to his wife’s home and temporarily move in with his in-laws while they figure out what’s next for them.
As you know, I don’t sell, advertise or seek to influence on my Blog.
However, these are unprecedented times and I want to try to help both the hardworking business owners, who must undoubtedly be struggling in these difficult days, and frustrated consumers.
I’ve started putting together a list of online shopping options which I will add to as I hear of more. So, you can do some shopping while staying home safe at the same time!
I have no affiliation or connection with these businesses and do not guarantee anything in relation to any of them – I am simply trying to put together a list of shopping options to help both consumers and business owners during these challenging times.
I am sure I have accidentally missed off the list some of the retailers who have already contacted me – my apologies. Please message me again and I will add you to the list.I
If you are a retailer, or know someone who is, please message me with your Website / Facebook / Instagram links and I will add you to the list. The list will be updated weekly.
I will also include, as part of the weekly list, a list of any SPECIAL OFFERS that I know of. So, retailers be sure to let me know of any specials you are running and, consumers be sure to check in weekly!
Just a small example from today to give you the general flavour:
6 Year Old : Mummy! She (her older sister) called me a dumb dumb poo-poo head”
Me: “Do YOU think you’re a dumb, dumb poo-poo head”
6 Year Old: “No”
Me: “Well, no need to worry about what she saId then – YOU know you’re not.”
(I was tempted to tell my 6 year old to give her older sister the classic reply “I know you are but what am I?” but refrained as (a) it probably wouldn’t have been the best parenting move but, more importantly, (b) it would have kept the squabble going longer…..
