I’m very grateful for all those who are reading this post after such a long gap. Weddings and the aftermath can be stressful and take up a lot of your time (more on this in the New Year). I thought as it is the season to be jolly I’d write a festive blog post. As… Continue reading Christmas 2017: Sleet, spacemen and sausages
It's been a while since I wrote anything but I will be back soon. I'm very grateful to all my readers. I thought it would be a good idea to buy a house and get married in the space of a few months. That's right; in three weeks I will be married 😀 Once everything has… Continue reading Bear with me…
Last week I watched (for the second time) one of my favourite Disney animated films become live-action. It was truly magical and yes I did cry; pretty much the whole way through the first time around. In my opinion, the casting couldn’t have been more perfect with a range of fantastic actors and actresses. Emma… Continue reading The day I met the Beast
Here are some of my thoughts from the last week.

I'm great at writing for others or for my new job but not actually for me so I am determined… Continue reading New Years Resolutions
Libraries are vital to the community yet spending cuts are on the rise.
A good friend and fellow bookworm asked me the other day "How exactly do you find the time to read?" It's actually a fair question, considering I work full time, have a full house and kids in activities who have an insane need for one-on-one time with their mama. It's just that ONE thing that… Continue reading How to Be a Bookworm When You Don’t Have the Time — That’s What She Read
As I list reading as one of my favourite things and I work in a library I thought it might be a good idea to talk about some of the books I have been reading. After a recommendation from a friend at work I have got into the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. They… Continue reading What am I reading?
