A stationery wish list

You may remember that I used to do 'item of the day' posts, where I'd share my favourite finds. I recently decided to switch to semi-regular wish list posts instead. It's been a while since the last one but I've continued to bookmark some of my favourite little treats and now it's time to share… Continue reading A stationery wish list

Geek Blogger Tag 2017

I spotted this tag in a geeky bloggers Facebook group I'm a member of and have been meaning to share it for ages. Take a look at Chrissy's responses here and link up your own in the comments. I love having a nose. What is your earliest memory of liking something un-mainstream or geeky? I didn't realise… Continue reading Geek Blogger Tag 2017

Self-Care Sunday #23

Blogging is the rare bit of time I get to myself. I write for my own sanity more than any other reason and when I don't get the chance to write for a few days I feel a bit on edge. I don't like to write at my laptop in front of Jenson because I… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #23

Saturday Share #106

I feel like every time I open Twitter theses days there seems to be more bad blood in the blogosphere, so this weekly update feels more necessary than ever. I love championing my favourite bloggers and sharing posts that have helped or inspired me. First off, 'scuse the little self-promo. I contributed to a fun… Continue reading Saturday Share #106

Friday Favourites #37

There's no #LittleLoves linky for a few weeks so I'm bringing back my Friday Favourites for August. It pains me that Jenson has had a week of late nights so I'm having to backdate the blog posts I'd planned for the week. Here's a look at our busy week. We'll start with a little moan.… Continue reading Friday Favourites #37

Book review: Oh Yeah, Audrey! by Tucker Shaw

Just before I started my A Levels I watched my first Audrey Hepburn film and I was instantly hooked. I devoured every film, bought every biography, posters adorned my walls and, eventually, I began to write about her life and career - first for my Film Studies essays and later for a couple of websites… Continue reading Book review: Oh Yeah, Audrey! by Tucker Shaw

Book review: Living the Dream by Lauren Berry

I love the realism of Lauren Berry's Living the Dream*. Until recently most young people assumed that they'd be in their dream job, a homeowner, married and thinking about a family by the age of 30. These days it's highly likely that you'll move back in with your parents for some time after graduation if… Continue reading Book review: Living the Dream by Lauren Berry

Jenson: 26 months old

When people ask me how old Jenson is now I keep saying that he's just turned two, when in fact that was two months ago. Seriously, where is the time going?! Following last month's update we've been for his hearing test and had the follow-up with the Health Visitor. He slept all the way through… Continue reading Jenson: 26 months old
