Catch Up

  Remember when blogs were a form of journalling? When we’d write down what we’d done in that day or how we felt about certain things as if our online space was a fluffy pink lockable diary from the 80’s? (Nineties, 2000’s, whatever).

Handing in my #onewomanbookclub Membership Card

Back in June I decided to take part in the 20 Books of Summer Challenge. That was the optimistic idea of reading twenty books in 3 months. Well, I am here to tell you that I didn’t quite make it. In fact, over the sunnier period I read only eight things. I guess we could […]

So you already know I […]

Hey Shorty, It’s Your Birthday

I’ve done this before on other significant birthdays (like The Queen, I have two: one for birth, and one for my blog*) and I wanted to mark today in a similar way, just for the sheer heck of it. Yes, it’s my 38th birthday. Or my eleventh time turning 27, depending on my mood. I wanted […]
