My Year In Books – 2022 (part 1) The Widdecombe Special

Although not the first book I read this year, when I started taking notes and writing down my thoughts about this read I realised my ramblings would need a post all of their own. So we are kicking off My Year In Books 2022 with this one. Basically, my life in a book. The One… Continue reading My Year In Books – 2022 (part 1) The Widdecombe Special

Another Level Of Planning

It seems I haven’t written for over a month. I would say that’s because I’ve been living it up. But unless you count reading books, drinking tea and doing cross stitch as ‘living it up’ then it’s probably just that there’s nothing much to say. I did go to the cinema, for the first time… Continue reading Another Level Of Planning

It Takes Time To Be Disabled

I was having a nightmare with my repeat prescription the other week. Who am I kidding, I have a problem with prescriptions most weeks. But this particular problem had taken an email, a phone call with a doctor, a couple of phone calls with the pharmacy, a visit to the pharmacy, missing items, another visit… Continue reading It Takes Time To Be Disabled

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #14

If we were having coffee I’d tell you I feel a bit like I’m dangling in a weird limbo. It’s the end of January but Christmas feels like years ago. I haven’t got used to saying 2022, but then I never really felt at ease with 2021. It’s like I’m still in 2020 but it’s… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #14

My Year In Books – 2021 (part 5) Festive Edition

I read 29 books in total during 2021, believe it or not. Smashing my Goodreads challenge of 25. There were a couple of short little novellas in there, but it’s sure been another year for the book. It had been a weird ol’ year, a bit like the previous really. Not just meaning I had… Continue reading My Year In Books – 2021 (part 5) Festive Edition

101 Things I’ve Done in 2021

Ye I know, you’re laughing at that title already. Thinking ‘well we’ve all been in a pandemic, half of that was in some form of lockdown, and she’s been semi shielding the rest’. Well if there’s one thing a global pandemic has taught me, it’s appreciate the small stuff. Because that’s stuff too. I’ve said… Continue reading 101 Things I’ve Done in 2021

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #13

If we were having coffee mine would be a hot chocolate. I’ve really got back into them lately (spurred on by something you’ll see later in this post), it is the season for it anyway. Gosh has it been cold! It snowed. Ok so, it was the tiniest bit of snow I’ve ever seen. But… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #13

My Year In Books – 2021 (part 3)

It’s getting cold now isn’t it? We had real snow yesterday. Just a little, but it was still snow. What better to do with these wintery nights than to light a few candles and cosy down with a book. So, here’s the latest instalment of what I’ve been reading. You can also catch up with… Continue reading My Year In Books – 2021 (part 3)

Halloween Afternoon Tea – The Assembly House Norwich

This has been a long time coming guys. But here it is. An Assembly House themed afternoon tea post made it to the blog before 2021 was out. There was this cakeaway review beck in 2020 when the world turned upside down and the lovely people that make The Assembly House what it is gifted… Continue reading Halloween Afternoon Tea – The Assembly House Norwich
