2018: These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things


The older I get the faster time seems to go. And the harder I find it to sit down and write a blog post. I’ve been looking through previous New Year’s blog posts from the last couple of years, trying to find my “blogging voice” and rekindle that flow of words. Alas, nothing. The best way is probably just word…

Wrapping Up the Year: 2017


I started 2017 with great hope and optimism. There’s something about the New Year that brings such refreshing positivity. It’s like all the mistakes from last year are in the past and it’s a chance to begin again for the next year. Like a new slate. My plans, or resolutions as they were, included “ trying to be a better person,…

Another Year Gone


 As Professor Dumbledore does say. It’s funny how as I get older the years seem to get shorter. Today a year is merely 1/20th of my life. Whereas when I was 4, a year was a whole quarter of my life! It’s all about perspective. Compared to this time a year ago, when I was planning for my year ahead,…

Raising Ivy


On the 1st of October, Ivy was born. She was tiny, helpless and an adorable ball of fluff. The first time my sister and I saw her was when she was a week old, hidden under some Ivy ( yes, hence the name )(apparently I’m like a native American the way I name my pets). She was the only kitten…

Blog Post comes with Free Cake


*** OYSTERS, CLAMS AND COCKLES *** Or if none of those tickles your taste buds I also bring Cake! I realise that it has been quite a while since I’ve posted on my blog. 2 months, 3 days, 3 hours, 48 minutes and 12 seconds. And that’s 2 months, 2 days, 5 hours too long. I hope the cake makes…

My Not-So-Summer


A typical summer in the life of me: Finish school in an exhilarated, exhausted daze of relief looking forward to 3 months of bliss, travel, excitement and freedom (in a Dobby-with-a-sock type way). For the past few years I’ve managed to jam pack my summers with lots of fun things. I’m not someone who likes to lay around at home…

April Wrap Up


April was exam month for me. It still is, I guess. I currently have two more exams left before Dobby will be Free!! XD Of course this would also happen to be the month that I decide to start blogging again. It’s not like I had any study to be doing…. oh wait! :LI did a huge amount of baking…

Life Happens


I often joke about having no life and that I spend way too much time doing grannyish things, like baking and knitting. I have no shame in saying that my typical weekend is full of reading wondrous books, knitting wooly hats, baking marvellous cakes and taking inept photos of cats. I would much prefer to nestle up under a blanket…

January Wrap Up


So it seams that my schedule has gone out the window. My new year organisation has dwindled away. Suddenly it’s February and I’m thinking “did I just miss two weeks?”. I swear, last time I looked at the calendar it was January 10th. This also means that I haven’t been reading other blogs and I feel really bad (mainly because…

December Wrap Up


First off, Merry Christmas to everyone and have a very happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that it is snowing wherever you are (unlike here….. hurry up and snow already!..) As they say on weheartit, it is page 364 of 365: make the most of it. Yeah, well, I’m just gonna snuggle up by…
