It's been the first full week (ok, I'm part-time but still) back at work since Christmas and I've been bleddy knackered.

Today is a big day in any bookworm's calendar - Roald Dahl Day. And not just any Roald Dahl Day - it's the celebration of what would be his 100th birthday! An extra special day indeed! And in honour of this momentous occasion, I've put together a little wish list of products that any Dahl… Continue reading Happy Roald Dahl Day!
Today's item of the day is a bit of a biggie because I wanted to squeeze my picks of the Next sale into my week's scheduled posts. Here are my fave little beauties (search the names to bring up the items - I always find it hard navigating the sale stuff on the website!).
