Why I Don’t Make a TBR

If you’ve been around book blogging or BookTube for any length of time, then you’ll know that the monthly TBR (to be read list) is a staple of the book community. However, they are conspicuous by their absence on my blog.  Here’s why you will never see me writing my own TBR posts! First up, […]

Go Send: My Experience

In December I ordered some Bath and Body Works candles from the US.  They don’t deliver to the UK, so I used a mail company called Go Send to ship them to my home address.  I’m finally getting round to sharing the experience with you. I have to admit, when I saw that a couple of UK Youtubers […]

A visit to St Fagan’s National History Museum

All the way back in November I took a trip to St Fagan’s with my mum and Oliver and I’m only now bringing you the photos… Anyhow, I hope you agree that it’s been worth the wait. St Fagan’s is a museum that everyone in South Wales visited as a child on a school trip. […]

Happy St David’s Day! Thoughts on bilingualism

  Happy St David’s Day!  Here in Wales today we celebrate the life of our patron saint, David, who died on 1st March 589.  It seems like a good day for a different type of post, one about the Welsh language and bilingualism (the ability to speak two languages). I grew up in an English […]

Reflecting on February

  It’s time to look back over February, my birthday month. Highlights I went charity shopping quite successfully.   My parents came to stay for the weekend and we went to Pontypridd and a craft fair.   Oliver hosted a 30th birthday party for me at our house.   I enjoyed my mystery 30th birthday […]
