Good time for a change

Wednesday, 20 May 2015

There is always time to change. We have long been told that he does not change, does not prosper. And let's be honest, I needed to change.

My blog had become something of a grey cloud, and the fact that I have barely blogged in the last few weeks and months is testament to this. The number of times that I have even wanted to blog has been even lower.

Cody and Meg were inseperable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until...they weren't anymore.

one :: Daughter by Jane Shemilt
I wanted to love this book. I had heard such wonderful things, and for the large part, I did. The mystery and intrigue that ran through the book as we tried to figure out just what had happened to the protagonist's, Jenny, daughter was captivating. The large amount of characters were thoroughly despicable, perhaps with the exception of Bertie the dog, but my opinions on characters is that the more villainous, the better.

dear me : a letter to my teenage self

Thursday, 16 October 2014

Dear Me,

On the 31st December 1999, we turned thirteen years old and the teenage years began. Heaven forbid. Some people look back fondly at their teenage years, but let me tell you now, that we are not one of them. I'm writing to you from 2014, where we are dealing with quite a prominent grey streak, and a few wrinkles, but things are so much better. You might not believe it, but you are engaged, living in London (who ever thought that would happen? Don't worry, you're moving in a week) and still wanting to do nothing but read and write. Some things really don't change.
