I finally did it 🥳📖✒️ After having finished writing my first draft over two years ago, it has taken so long to drag myself back to editing it, only managing a little bit here and there. But #campnanowrimo was the boost that I needed to get over the finish line at last! I have finally finished editingContinue reading “Camp Nanowrimo 2022”

Happy (belated) New Year!
post simply because November and December seemed to just bring about a stream of issues and setbacks (and Christmas wasn’t one of them hilariously). But a lot of stuff happened all at once and so I didn’t have the time, resources, or energy to post a video or write a blog entry due to it all.
Book Review of Oz by Bobbie Darbyshire
So I said that I wouldn’t write reviews for fiction because it would hinder the experience of getting lost in a book – and going into a book wanting to review it is still something I won’t do. But this one, that I found today in the bargain box due to a slightly damaged spine,Continue reading “Book Review of Oz by Bobbie Darbyshire”
Book Review of The Hollow Crown by Dan Jones
The Hollow Crown is the second book that I have read by Dan Jones (and I have just bought his new book Power and Thrones which I am very much looking forward to reading), the first being the Plantagenets, which I fully enjoyed. Having also watched his series Great British Castles (many times) which heContinue reading “Book Review of The Hollow Crown by Dan Jones”
Book Review of What I talk about when I talk about Running by Haruki Murakami
If I could ever say that a book had made me at least even think about picking up regular exercise of any kind, the one that comes closest is Murakami’s memoir about writing and running, What I talk about when I talk about running. I have been a fan of Murakami’s writing ever since readingContinue reading “Book Review of What I talk about when I talk about Running by Haruki Murakami”
Watercolouring Part 2: Timelapse and Pride in my Paintings
Here is a part two of the painting that I did during my mini holiday at my parents’ house. I wonder if I was proud of them..😂. But I enjoyed it so much and so I now just need to figure out how to keep it up now that I’m back in the city.
Getting back into Painting in Watercolours
So I went to my parents house for a few weeks and while I have the house to myself for the weekend, I thought I’d do something that I haven’t done for ages: Paint! I haven’t used watercolour in a long time and so I’m a little rusty but I still had a lot ofContinue reading “Getting back into Painting in Watercolours”
Book Review of Hidden Nature by Alys Fowler
This book was a cruel one for the sole fact that it made me bawl like a child. The tale of Alys’ life upheavals coupled with her travels up and down the canals of Birmingham (and sometimes London) is one that both intrigued me at points – Fowler is a gardener at heart and theContinue reading “Book Review of Hidden Nature by Alys Fowler”
A Spontaneous Book Haul
This was all a bit sudden and so if it’s waffly, I got excited about being home alone – as shown by me using my ‘nobody’s home inside voice’ XD Hope you like it! Books mentioned in the video: The Hollow Crown – Dan Jones. Why does E=MC (squared)? – Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw.Continue reading “A Spontaneous Book Haul”
A couple of Studying days (Vlog)
So this video is a chill one – and I like to use vlogging as a way to motivate myself to study, which is kind of what this video is.
