50 Questions You’ve Never Been Asked Tag

It’s a Saturday evening, in the middle of March, and it’s snowing. Again. It’s bloody freezing, and I am sat with a hot water bottle on my knee wrapped up in a blanket like a burrito (it hasn’t stopped me indulging in a little mint choc chip ice cream though). Happy St. Patrick’s day too, I’m celebrating by staying in, reading Ragdoll and watching Jessica Jones. I don’t know what you have planned, but my night is most definitely top notch.

My housemate Emma, over at The Terror of Knowing, introduced me to a hefty 50 question tag consisting of questions that you probably haven’t been asked before. I also enjoyed Emma Oulton’s video post too, her channel Drinking by my Shelf is too hilarious. Combine these two together and I couldn’t resist jumping on the bandwagon.

Bullet Journal: The Ressurection

Can you believe that it’s Sunday night and the weekend is already over…again? No me neither, time seems to disappear so fast at the weekend! This weekend has highlighted my poor time management, so this weekend I have decided to start planning ahead. For someone who is inherently more laid back and has more of a ‘it’ll all work out alright in the end’ attitude, this is a fairly big step and a major decision. How am I going to do this you ask? Well, with a calendar and a bullet journal resurrection of course! Continue reading “Bullet Journal: The Ressurection”

New Year’s Resolution: 3rd Quarter Check-In

At the end of last year, I decided to compile a list of resolutions for 2017 in the hope of improving various aspects of my life. I set myself some rather large goals, and as I have a tendency to set them and the completely forget what they are, I have decided to check in with my progress over the year. At the end of March, a quarter of the way through the year, I posted a quarterly check in (which can be found here). I wanted to check back in and see how I was getting on with them, and it’s safe to say that it’s not exactly going to plan. In June, half way through the year, I decided to recap how the first half of the year had gone (click here to read). It was becoming apparent that I was only focusing on one or two resolution areas. And now, we’re three quarters of the way through the year and I still feel like I am failing at most of them, but, we’ll see.

Just to recap, my New Years Resolutions can be found here. Continue reading “New Year’s Resolution: 3rd Quarter Check-In”

Seasonal Goals

The weather is changing, the days are getting shorter, and I am looking longingly at my jumpers, which can mean only one thing: autumn is coming! And with autumn comes lots of things that I love, proper football nights under the floodlights, hot chocolates and fancy lattes, pumpkins and Hallowe’en, Thanksgiving and lots of friends and family birthdays. I love autumn, it’s probably my favourite season.

Happy 400th Post-Day To Me!

It does not take a genius to work out the theme of this short but sweet post. Yes, you did guess correctly, this is my 400th post. 400 posts. That seems like an awful lot. Lots of books reviewed, places travelled, rants expressed, readathons completed, and friends made. So, to all of you who read, follow, and maybe even like my blog, thank you!

At the end of last year, I decided to compile a list of resolutions for 2017 in the hope of improving various aspects of my life.

So, now as a quarter of the year has gone, it seems like the perfect time to check my progress for January, February, and March. Just to recap, my New Years Resolutions can be found here.
