In June this year I read Grape Expectations as part of #ktbookbingo. I really enjoyed it and was delighted when the author, Caro Feely, commented on my post and told me that she’d written to further books about life at Chateau Feely. . . Eager to find out more about Chateau Feely and whether or not the Feely family could make it work, I purchased Saving Our Skins and Glass Half Full and was not disappointed. . . Like a good bottle of wine gets better with age, so too does Feely’s writing. I love that she exposes herself, her family and Vineyard, warts and all, in the good times and the bad, through the highs and lows. Being able to read about the successes, the frustrations, the daily grind, the budget concerns and why organic farming is crucial for our future; gives an honest and raw account of life in a small vineyard in France that makes for two books that you simply cannot put down. The writing is a clever combination that makes you feel like you are reading the author’s personal diary but also so descriptive that you can easily picture yourself harvesting grapes, chasing the chickens around the Chateau, being on a wine walking tour or enjoying Sean’s cooking with a glass of Chateau Feely wine. . . Just as I highly recommend Grape Expectations, so do I recommend Saving our Skins and Glass Half Full. It’s an excellent trilogy all round, but will especially be enjoyed by foodies, wine lovers and anyone who dreams of throwing in their day job to follow their passion. I hope that we hear more in the future from Feely about life at Chateau Feely, for these books make me feel like I’m a friend of the family now. 4 ⭐️ . . #savingourskins #glasshalffull #carofeely #highlyrecomended #nonfiction #memoir #trilogy #turningdreamsintoreality #wine #frenchwine #vineyard #organicfarming #chateaufeely #bergerac #france #reading #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookworm #goodreads #greatreads #goodbook #book #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #booksofig #instabook @carofeely @summersdalepublishers @frenchwineadventures @chateaufeely @scotchmanshill

beanditwillbe. I’m often asked 'Don't you ever feel sad? Are you always happy?'
So Li

I’m often asked 'Don't you ever feel sad? Are you always happy?' So Life happens to me just as it does for everyone else- it comes to me as its there to show me something about me- I live the BE AND IT WILL BE method daily - Ive learned to live in the NOW, and to accept what is - Ive learned to chose what I want to feel and feel it deliberately because I can and this is where miracles come to me...So yes I get to feel happy most of the time- and when a feeling comes up that doesn't feel good, I give myself permission to feel what ever it is until it goes - I let go of the story the mind wants to tell me and makes me feel - and I return to my default "happiness"- Highly recommended :) #highlyrecomended #happiness #thoughts #beanditwillbe #bethechange #instagram #photographer #naturephotography #history #stop #bermudaonion_ii
