Friday Favourites #30

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. The commute means I'm ready for bed come 8pm on a Wednesday so I don't really get much done the first half of the week. Now's the time for catching up on laundry, tidying… Continue reading Friday Favourites #30

Then Thursday turned into a… Continue reading Friday Favourites #7

Last night I had a quick look on Amazon cos I was sure that the next volume of Ms Marvel is due out soon - and I was right! It's out on Tuesday!

My life in photos: January 2016

Is it just me or does it still feel like it was just Christmas and now January is already over? It flew by in a blur of germs, geekery, coffee and cake, as evidenced by the following photos. 1.

I just saw the Supergirl trailer and oh em gee, what the fuck is all that about? Remember the spoof Black Widow trailer which Scarlett Johansson made for Saturday Night Live? Ya know, cos there are no female-led superhero flicks and the world thinks that this kinda shit wouldn't sell cos it'd be all Devil… Continue reading What the eff is up with the Supergirl trailer?!

So here's a rundown on what I've been reading lately. The John Green books Paper Towns, Looking For Alaska, Let It Snow, Will… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #2
