07/12/20 – Wise words

I had an awful morning today. Over tired and emotional. I did get the chance to read some more of my book though, A Christmas Carol, and reached my most favourite quote from it (in the photo!) This evening I ran 2 miles to then go swimming with a friend and ran back home. ItContinue reading “07/12/20 – Wise words”

30/11/20 – Reading is wonderful

I’ve finished Harry Potter! I’m now spending the remainder of 2020 finishing off some of my heavier non-fiction books, then it’ll be a smattering of Christmas fictions to see me through to the new year.

29/11/20 – Dusk walk

Do you ever get so into finishing the last Harry Potter book you forget to update the daily blog you’ve had for nearly 10 years? Yeah, me neither… Today Nic and I had a very chilled day.

14/11/20 – Lockdown escapism

I’m still absolutely loving rereading Harry Potter as a bit of lockdown escapism. Three weeks later and I’m up at 1am as I finish the 5th book like it’s 2003… I just can’t get enough of them! I think it took me about three months to finish the series last time I read them, I’veContinue reading “14/11/20 – Lockdown escapism”

03/02/2014 – Chicken and a good book

I have had a lovely day today for a variety of reasons. A few examples being a I had great day in work, followed by Earls Court Road being blocked off so there were no cars whilst cycling home, then I went to Nandos with the ever delightful Kat (former housemate) and finally snuggled upContinue reading “03/02/2014 – Chicken and a good book”

05/09/2012 – My First Published Work!

Today I received the news that the ad I designed last week was in today’s issue of the Guardian! I nerdily ran out at lunch to buy a copy, and here’s the advert! I’m really happy, it was a 2 day turnaround and it’s come out well (I think). Yay! I then had a lovely evening satContinue reading “05/09/2012 – My First Published Work!”
