What to wear: Do fashion planning apps work?

April 22, 2015

I've finally acquired a Smartphone, and have had endless fun with the online app store. There really is so much to do and see and experiment with. I decided to try a fashion planning app to help me decide what to wear each day as I inevitably grab whatever's most accessible, which is exactly what I wore last week since it's packed in front.

Just Read: A Jealous Ghost by AN Wilson

April 20, 2015

I can certainly attribute my love of the classics to Henry James' The Turn of the Screw, which I read long before I started to study literature but which is still one of my favourite novellas. A.N. Wilson's A Jealous Ghost was meant to be on my bookshelf and reading list simply because of that fact and I enjoyed the read not only because I am a Turn fangirl and a ghost story lover, but also because I am a literature student.

By now you all know that I've been working to fix our bathroom after our original plumbers made a mess. And I've finally finished!

New floors = brand new lounge!

April 5, 2015

Our floors were finished more than a week ago, but it has taken me this long to get (mostly) everything back in place. After some chopping and changing and moving and mixing, we at least have our lounge back. One thing I've learned: we have way too much stuff!

A funny joke about self-centred people. Do you know anyone who fits the description?

Just Read: Déjà Dead by Kathy Reichs

March 17, 2015

I'm an enormous fan of the television series 'Bones' but have never ventured into reading the novels upon which the series is based. Having found the first in the series hidden away on a top shelf in one of my favourite second-hand book stores, I decided there was no time like the present.

Just Read: Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli

March 14, 2015

This novel is one of those that will haunt you, not only because of what happens in the novel but because of your own personal knowledge of what happened during the Holocaust.

New Floors: In Progress

March 10, 2015

We've been staying in our home now for over five years, and have been living with the same carpets since then - carpets that were here when we moved in and who knows how long before that. We've been deliberating over doing the floors for ages, and finally decided to take the plunge.

If we can survive the mess that came with our bathroom fix-up, we can survive this!
