August 2017: Mixed Bag

Mixed Bag is the topic for our August / September issue – dip your hand in and surprise yourself with what you pull out! It may be a great recipe for Romanian Dumpling Soup or Teriyaki Skewers. You might find yourself more informed about E-cigarettes or learn how to make an accordion photo album. Perhaps you’ll pull out a story that will offer tips to support a new mother or something that isn’t always easy to discuss – the loss of a pregnancy. You might be inspired to write your own memoirs or convince other family members to write theirs. There is more in our Mixed Bag and even more in our archives, so brew yourself a cuppa and see what reading treasures you’ll find.
