Sorceresses, Fools, White Rabbits and Jules: World Book Day Shenanigans

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, on Thursday evening a few friends and I met up for a book-swapping party in honour of World Book Day. In addition to book-swapping, we also dressed up as our favourite literary characters just like hundreds of children across the country were doing for school, because we felt like revisiting our youth. … Continue reading Sorceresses, Fools, White Rabbits and Jules: World Book Day Shenanigans

2016: Year In Review

For me personally, 2016 was a total write-off. I feel like I sleep-walked my way through most of this year.

A Few Things to be Excited About!

I have just returned from my holiday - a rather swanky trip around Europe on the biggest cruiseship in the world, Harmony of the Seas, with my  lovely boyfriend Mark and my cruise-addicted parents. We set sail from Barcelona, stopping in Parma, Marseilles, La Spezia, Rome and Naples. It was bloody hot and extremely expensive, however there … Continue reading A Few Things to be Excited About!

Gothic Adventures in Nottingham

I can't believe this was over a month ago now, but I wanted to talk about how I spent much of the Easter weekend in Nottingham with my good friends Beth and Mandy. Beth and Mandy are both still at university doing their History PhDs (poor things) so we were looking to celebrate the end … Continue reading Gothic Adventures in Nottingham
