Today, 26th June 2017, marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
I've had some time to reflect over the weekend. Over the last few days, there has been a lot of turmoil across the country.

The lovely Mollie tagged me in this a while ago... She's fabulous and I highly recommend you check out her blog and general existence. Actually, must send mega props to Mollie, as she also tagged me in a post that will become my next post as well! Keeping me on my toes...

Thank you so much Deanna for giving me this lovely opportunity to… Continue reading The Liebster Award

There is great jubilation from some, still celebrating the Conservative whitewash of May's general election. This is ever more present with the recent announcement of the budget. However, the Conservative… Continue reading Dear Someone – 13/7/15
Day 1 - A letter to yourself as a child Dear little one, You won't appreciate your life until you are verging on twenty-five. Even then, you will still have no idea just how lucky you are. You won't appreciate how easy it is to play, how unnecessary it is to worry and how much… Continue reading Dear Someone – 4/7/15
