Turning 30, a bit of nostalgia and Hunt for the Wilderpeople #LittleLoves

Turning 30, coupled with re-watching a TV show you grew up with and realising it launched nearly 20 years old, makes for a rather nostalgic week. Here's a look at the last seven days at Casa de Cornish Geek. Read: I've been on annual leave this week so no time for books or magazines. Instead… Continue reading Turning 30, a bit of nostalgia and Hunt for the Wilderpeople #LittleLoves

My 2016 Goodreads Challenge

I'd had a Goodreads account for a while but not really used it until this year. When I was bored I liked to rate books in order to get recommendations but I never used it to track my reading.

Saturday Share #59

Man, it's been a great week in the blogosphere!

Wish list: M&S kids

We're lucky that Jenson is now in that fun clothing age range where he can wear both baby and boys clothes. Baby clothes tend to go up to 24 months and most boys clothes start at a year old, so he can still wear the cute baby dungarees (which Luke hates but I love -… Continue reading Wish list: M&S kids

What I’ve been reading lately #3: The Avengers special

Before we went to see The Avengers: Age of Ultron, I had some homework to do. Ahead of seeing a new comic book film, Luke usually gives me a bit of a background from the source material, but I still tend to come out of the cinema with the questions, either because the film wasn't… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #3: The Avengers special
