New Year – 2017

New Year – 2017

As I write this it is raining outside. The time is 4:46 am on the 1st January 2017. I missed midnight. I’ve always found the sound of rain pattering on my window in the darkness soothing. As last year closed and this year began I slept quietly at home. That wasn’t my intention. I thought […]

Dear Bookish Friend (who I wish existed…)

A Political Interlude You’ve probably already heard about the recent referendum that took place in the UK, asking us whether we wanted to remain a member of the EU or leave it.

The Time I Saw Derren Brown

The Time I Saw Derren Brown

Earlier this month I went to see Derren Brown’s newest stage show, Miracle. I watched it during its run at The Grand in Wolverhampton (which is a lovely, old fashioned theatre). Seeing Derren Brown perform live is a totally brilliant experience. If you’re looking for a chance to be amazed and want to give your mind […]

On the Plus Side is a feature on my blog that covers the positive things that have happened to me recently. It feels like AGES since I’ve posted something personal, I’ve mostly been sharing that side of things on my Instagram account but I’m consolidating some of those updates here. An awful lot of things have […]
