Ramble #9

The start of the week went by quickly. On Tuesday evening I had interupted sleep. On Wednesday evening I slept every couple of hours. On Thursday evening I might have well stayed away. Oh the drama of insomnia. This week I read one book, discarded another book, listened to an audiobook and created a new…

3 Fact Book News – 30/01/2020

“More?” I hear you say, “she isn’t adding more to her blog?!” Yes. I am. You see, there is a lot I don’t put in my blog, books I get, books I discard, books I don’t finish reading and many other book related sins. I was looking at my tbr shelves yesterday and feeling overwhelmed…

Book Haul – I have Sinned!

Here’s the thing. I already knew I was going to break the ban this time. I had to go into town, I was feeling happy about life, I knew I wanted to visit Waterstones. I got some money for Christmas that I was going to put into savings but in a ‘spur of a moment’…

Ramble #8

It’s been a funny old week, primarily because I’ve been off work with ghastly cough and have been feeling all round icky. I did start the week at work, feeling fine until a rogue cough at 9:30 turned into a coughing storm of doom and after 5 hours of work, I accepted my colleagues repeated…

Travel Ramble – Tignes No 4

I skied. I wish that statement filled me with happiness but actually I’ve had a terrible day. It took me about 3 hours to get down one run from the top to the bottom of the mountain. I was crying hysterically, suffering continuous panic attacks, swearing and angrily hating myself. I have tight calves, I’ve…

Travel Ramble – Tignes No. 2

Today I skied more than yesterday, swore at an annoyingly small thing and even had a little cry! I remembered to put factor 50 on my face today. It has been so hot! I’ve felt like a baked potato in my ski wear. The last run I did today, I did to prove to myself…

Travel Ramble – Tignes No. 1

Well guys, I’m back in Tignes again for another weeks skiing and the weather is lovely! It’s amazing seeing Tignes this time around in the sun because I didn’t really see much of it last year between not skiing and the terrible weather. This year marks a decade of skiing with my Dad and I…

Every Review of 2019 – 41,938 pages in 138 books

Top Ten 2019

I can’t believe it’s the end of the year already! I also can’t believe that the anniversary of this site is just around the corner! It seems almost impossible to me but then I am constantly surprised by this blog. I had to separate my ‘Top Ten’s’ this year because I’m greedy. This Top Ten…
