Welcome to CookCreateRead, a lifestyle blog about books, cooking and all things creative.

My name is Terri, a 40-something wife and mum to two adult children.  I live on the outskirts of London and I have a busy, sometimes stressful job as a manager in the NHS, but when I’m not at work (or stressing about work) I can usually be found at home with my nose in a book.  

The big 5-0 is looming and my thoughts have inevitably turned to all the things I haven’t done.  So I created a bucket list, and set up this blog as a place to chronicle my hobbies as well as my progress as I tick things off the list!  


I hope you will join me on my journey, and maybe pick up some book recommendations along the way!  All reviews on this blog will be my own honest thoughts.
