One thought on “belle

  1. My copy of your book arrived, spent a lovely few hours curled up on the sofa with a mug of tea whilst the rain lashed down in torrents.
    If anybody is debating whether to purchase it or not, one of my hobbies is etymology. If you are like me, who loves old words, then this book is a must buy.
    Seasons greetings.
