To The Lighthouse

Virginia Woolf’s To The Lighthouse is actually I book I’ve read before. It’s short, with an uncomplicated plot and interesting prose structure. I thought it would be a great quick pick for the shortest month of the year.

You may well notice that it's actually late March now and not February any more:

Well, I obviously forgot that it's Virginia Woolf and not The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Snow Daze: A Mixtape For When It's Snowing And You're Trapped In Your House With No Escape

Those of you who have been around this blog for a little while will know I have a penchant for mixtapes. I would like to imagine there is the potential for a soundtrack to every occasion. This week, I've been moreorless literally snowed in to my house and have been doing what I can to prevent a slow hell spiral into Cabin Fever Fortunately, I have had some company in the form of Brandy, our pup, and so the 'album artwork' is in obvious homage to her. If it hadn't been for her happy little face and floppy ears this week I think I would have genuinely been gnawing off my arm by now. This is a playlist for that.

February Favourites

Hello all! I hope you've been well. It's been Snowmageddon my side (more on this soon) and I've been going, quite frankly, stir crazy. I have been wanting to think back to a simpler time (a mere week or so ago) when I could venture outside freely without the real fear of immediate icy death at every turn. For this reason, I felt now was as apt a time as any to compile my favourites for the month of Feb.

One Month with Brandy

Happy Saturday all, I hope this week has been a good'un. Alongside Valentine's Day and the attributed gumpf, we also marked another somewhat sentimental occasion this week-- one whole month since Sam and I collected our little demon child/puppy, Brandy. I thought with all good intentions it might good to fill you guys in-- for better or worse!

The Princess Diarist

Hi all! So far, so on-time: I have my first book recommendation of the year! That being said, truth must be told-- I haven't read this one. I've been listening to the audiobook on the way to work and it's been the absolute perfect remedy for January Blues.

Twelve Books for Twelve Months

Hi all! I hope January has been treating you well so far. Considering it's supposed to be the most quiet month of the year it's been exceedingly crazy for me so far. In no small part thanks to a recent addition to my life-- a puppy! We picked her up a week ago and it's been a whirlwind so far.

Having a little one who needs me has meant I've been lining up things to do that keep me occupied at home (particularly for the next few weeks when she can't go outside). I'm already midway through season three of Peaky Blinders after only starting watching two days ago, but I wanted to line up some reading for when that runs its course. Fortunately, I'm coming into 2018 with a reading list as long as my arm so I'm off to a good start!
