Yesterday I watched a video by Lucythereader introducing her Classicsathon readathon for the month of August. As you may already know, I'm participating in the Booktubeathon until August 5th, but after that I still have 4 weeks of holiday which means 4 weeks to read some classics! I've picked out 4 classics I'd like to… Continue reading Classicsathon August 2018
Good morning day 4! Yesterday I didn't read much, but today I have no plans so I'll be doing the sprints, finishing book 2, watching my movie adaptation and hopefully starting and finishing book 3 🙂 I'll check in after the first sprints at 10.00am BST! 16.27: Woops! So I didn't check in! I read,… Continue reading Booktubeathon 2018 Daily Blog #4
Good morning day 3! I think today is going to be a bad one for reading as I've made impromptu plans for a walk and lunch with a friend - although it could be just the break I need to get me back to Monday's reading speed! It's 9.33 now so I'm going to start… Continue reading Booktubeathon 2018 Daily Blog #3
6.20: I'm awake and in the middle of a decision - should I read the shorter books on my TBR in order to get through them and read as many as possible, or should I alternate between long and short? Should I ask my very first question on Twitter? 6.56: I threw my first question… Continue reading Booktubeathon Daily Blog #2

I've been off the blog for a while but I think that booktubeathon is the perfect opportunity to get back into it. I've also been dabbling in YouTube videos but I don't have a great camera or place for filming so I decided to stick to the blog for the time being. I did film… Continue reading Booktubeathon TBR
Recently I discovered (after finally clicking on a Facebook ad) a website called dailyom.com and an online course called A Year to Simplify your Life. It is a paid course but with a difference, it asks you to pay what you can afford/think is a fair price. Considering the financial year I've had so far… Continue reading Slow down Sunday
I'm starting this weekend blog as I said I would last week, on Saturday morning, with the intention of writing little and often. The weather for this weekend is not supposed to be as good as last week so there will be less gardening and hopefully a bit more reading... My only definite plan is… Continue reading Weekend blog!
I'm currently in the middle of three crochet projects that I'd really like to finish this week. The first is a little dog keyring that my mum sent me a kit for. I only need to finish the legs and the tail, but I hate the fiddly bits of crochet so much that I've been… Continue reading Crochet corner!
