Hey everyone! 

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas filled with love and happiness. I had a lovely day with my parents and a flying visit to my nan. It was just wonderful really. I wish the same for you all too. 

I couldn’t believe it when I saw I reached 700 followers on Christmas Day. I’m so shocked! I don’t think I deserve 700 lovely followers. I’m unpredictable, unreliable almost, but with the best intentions and a lot of love for this community. Thank you for continuing to stick by me even though I vanish for weeks on end. I promise you I am trying to sort my work/life balance. I’ll get there eventually. 

Anyway, you guys are so awesome! To show my appreciation, I’ve uploaded a picture of my gorgeous bunny, Smudge in his Christmas hat. I hope you find this as cute as I do! 

Big love to all xx

Hey guys! 

Happy September!

I can’t believe it but my little space on the net has now got 600 followers. Thank you SO much. I’m really grateful. 

I started this blog as a bit of a memory thing or archive I guess for books and places I’ve been etc for myself. I can’t believe what it’s turned into. However, to know I’ve got some lovely, talented bloggers stopping by really makes my day. I really admire so many of you! 

So, thanks for sticking around and putting up with me! 

To mark the occasion I’ve added a photo of me in Marco Pierre White’s infamous chair from his Stratford upon Avon restaurant. It’s pretty amazing – the food not my photo! (Apologies for the dodgy sun tanand laughing-screwed-up-face look…but at least it’s natural!)

I hope September brings you lots of happiness as ever! 

Big love xx

Blog Birthday & 500 Followers 

Hey guys! 

So, I woke up to two amazing notifications this morning….

Firstly, my little blog now has 500 followers!! What?! That’s crazy! Thanks so much everyone for stopping by and just being a huge part of my blogging experience. I can honestly say that this platform is so supportive and welcoming. It’s just a lovely community. I’m so lucky to be a part of it. 

Secondly, yesterday was my little blogs birthday! A whole year on WordPress. I can’t really believe that either! I can’t believe I was asleep when these notifications came through. Nevermind. Happy birthday (and 1 day) to my little space on the internet. I have big hopes for the future and I really hope you will all stick with me to see it happen. 

I started this blog to keep track of what I’ve been reading and doing, a little online diary as it were. But, I never expected to learn so much from different people, from all walks of life. I’ve seen photos of places I’ll probably never get to experience. I’ve heard about books that we are all passionate about, shared our memories and experiences of them, as well as our dislikes. 
Finally, I just need to say… 

Big love x

400 Followers – WHAT?! 

Hey guys! 

I’m super excited to notice that I’ve now reached 400 followers! (No WordPress notification again – what’s that about? If anyone can help with that I would appreciate it.) Thank you so much. I genuinely can’t believe it. I love the WordPress community and I’m really enjoying being a part of it. I know I say this all the time, but I really do mean it. 

Also, thank you for all putting up with me and for liking my posts! It’s always nerve wracking whenever you post anything about yourself or your opinions. You never quite know how people will react. But, I’m so lucky because I have you guys and you are all super lovely. Also, your patience is just honourable. I know I’m here, there and everywhere, usually with a set of books or a pile of coursework to mark, but you all genuinely are fabulous at putting up with me. 

To celebrate I’ve ordered a Chinese takeaway and for all you lovely people, a selfie in my favourite dress from my friends wedding. What more could you ask for on a Tuesday night?! 

Thank you again, you beautiful community. 

So much love to you all. X

300+ followers! 

Hey guys! 

I just happened to notice that I’ve reached (and now passed) the 300 follower mark! Normally WordPress give me a notification, but I’ve not had one. Never mind! I hadn’t forgotten though and I want to thank you all! 

So, thank you so much everyone.  I never thought my little blog would be this popular. Even when I’m super busy with work, you guys still check on me and leave me messages. You’re all so lovely. Thank you!  

You’ve made Christmas come early! Thank you for your support, especially those bloggers who followed me when I first started (and had no idea what on earth I was doing!) To my latest followers, I can’t wait to get to know you all. I’m sorry this is so repetitive, I just feel so lucky! 

To make your day, or simply just to make you laugh, here’s a photo of me as an elf! 


Big love xx

Another milestone…


Oh my days! I can’t believe this. Thank you all so so much. I’m really super excited. I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve this. All your support means the world to me so thank you. Little did I know that my 4 month old blog would reach over 200 followers. Amazing. 

Thank you so much everyone. You’ve made my day. 

Big love x

A Little Milestone…


I cannot believe that I received this WordPress notification last night:


So, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who has ever followed, liked or commented on a post of mine. I never expected any kind of reaction or feedback. I didn’t think anyone would read what I blogged about, let alone follow my blog to read my bits and bobs daily. After all, there are millions of blogs out there. 

I started my blog on May 25th 2015 with no expectations and no clue as to what I was doing. Looking back at some of my earlier posts you can kind of tell! But, it’s been a learning process for me, and the blogging community I’ve interacted with so far have all been wonderful. Thanks for making my welcome to blogging to lovely! 

There are so amazing blogs out there, and I feel really privileged to have my blog bobbing along in the internet world with them. 

Thank you again, I’m genuinely so shocked and happy at the same time. After all I’m just writing about things I love. It makes me happy, and knowing that others enjoy my posts too, is an added bonus. I genuinely feel like this:
