So it’s my (not so) little brother’s 17th birthday today, and I thought I’d write him a post to let him know how much he means to me, and how much I appreciate him. Hope this doesn’t cringe you out too much Cam.
We often forget to slow down and appreciate the little things.
I’ve been really busy recently and haven’t had much time for reading. *cries*. However, I did read ‘The girl with the dragon tattoo’ by Stieg Larsson recently, so I thought I’d post a review on how I found it.
Hey everyone! Haven’t posted in a while, as I’ve had a few days holiday off work and have been quite busy, so I thought I’d post to let you all know what I’ve been up to.
It was May bank holiday, so I thought I’d add a couple of days off work on the end, to really make the most of it!
Book Review: “The Adventures Of Tom Bombadil” by J.R.R Tolkien
As a huge Tolkien and Tom Bombadil fan, I’ve wanted this book for years. It was really hard to find anywhere (other than pretty poor quality editions from like 50 years ago that I saw online), so it’s safe to say that when I saw this beautiful edition in Waterstones I
may have definitely internally screamed like a little kid…
I was a little bit stuck on inspiration for what to blog about this week. But, as I’ve discovered a lot of new music over the last few weeks, and I pretty much spend my days at the office with headphones plugged in discovering new songs, or listening to old favourites, I thought I’d share with you 3 albums I’m listening to, and loving, this week.
Not the kind of book I’d usually read, but I actually found myself enjoying this one quite a lot. The story revolves around Elizabeth Plantagenet – a spoilt and self-assured seventeen year old girl who has very strong royal blood and connections to the crown of England.
The story starts off with the realisation that Elizabeth is to be married, which sounds harmless and a cause for celebration, right? However, the Earl Of Pembroke, who has been promised Elizabeth’s hand in marriage, is a child of only 8 years old. Angry at her father for using her as a pawn in his political game, Elizabeth acts out and makes things difficult.
