A little while ago I wrote a post called are video games a blessing or a curse? Did you read it? It was one of those posts that started off as a rant, an opportunity to vent a few frustrations, and whilst that was great, it ended up becoming more than that. It became a… Continue reading Are mobile phones a blessing or a curse?
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry: a young adult novel by Mildred D. Taylor. Have you read it? If so, take a moment and think about what, (if anything) it meant to you. If you haven't then take a moment to do a quick search to get your hands on a copy, because, in my… Continue reading Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry: a book that had a lasting impact on me
What is your timekeeping like? Mine has always been off. When I was younger it was off in the way of me always being stupidly early for everything. I'm not kidding, I would be the person with an appointment at 10am who would turn up at 9.20am and feel foolish hanging around. I worried though,… Continue reading Can you really achieve perfect timekeeping?
You hear people say all the time that they are 'upfront and honest', they 'tell it like it is' and then 'at least people know where they stand'. It's worn as a badge of honour, it is the most positive attribute to be an honest person. Honesty is great, lying is not. We all know… Continue reading When does being honest tip over into being rude?
I apologise in advance because this post may be nothing more than a bunch of questions and a big old rant. There, I warned you. So, what has got me typing away today?

Wise words aren't they? You will probably be aware by now that I love reading quotes, I find them so inspiring. I also find it comforting when I come across some words that somebody else has spoken that I can either relate to or that can make me feel better about something that is troubling… Continue reading How I found inspiration in the words of another
They're everywhere nowadays aren't they? I thought they might just be a craze when they first hit the shelves but it doesn't seem that way now. Adult colouring books are really standing the test of time! Are they worth the hype though? Do they provide for us what they claim to or is it a… Continue reading Are adult colouring books worth the hype?
The Handmaid's Tale is a book that I received as a gift a long time ago, found a spot on my bookshelf for and then forgot about. That was, until the beginning of this year when I was looking through my books and making a list of the main ones that were on my unread list… Continue reading A book review: The Handmaid’s Tale
I'm really intrigued. What makes somebody a morning person or a night owl? I'm not really either. I work shift work and as a result my body clock is pretty much all over the place. Sure, there are down sides to this but the positive is that I can now literally sleep anywhere and at… Continue reading Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I watched the film adaptation of The Woman in Black years ago. What compelled me to watch it was a mixture of loving horror films and complete intrigue as to how Daniel Radcliffe would tackle an adult role. Anyway, I watched the film and I didn't think about it again. It was one of those films that… Continue reading The book versus movie debate: The Woman in Black
