This post is very slightly different to usual ‘TBR List’ posts. I’m focusing on a few books that have been sitting on my shelves for far too long but I’ve never read. I’m not even entirely sure why this is the case. There are books I bought thinking ‘this will be my next read’, but… Continue reading BOOKS I WANT TO READ IN 2019
At the start of July I posted my Summer TBR list stating I had eight weeks to complete it. I’m back to uni tomorrow (did I mention? lol) So, did I manage to finish my TBR pile? No. But it’s not that I just haven’t read over Summer. In fact, I’ve completed 13 books in… Continue reading DID I COMPLETE MY SUMMER TBR PILE?
Next week, I go back to uni to start a PGDE in primary education. Am I ready? In short… Hell no. This is what I have wanted for as long as I can remember. It’s always been my end goal to become a primary school teacher so I am super excited to finally accomplish this… Continue reading AM I READY TO GO BACK TO UNI?
I am a huge Potter head so when I saw this post on Jenny’s blog, I knew I had to complete it for myself! Which house are you in? Gryffindor! What is your patronus? A chow dog… wee bit random. What is your wand? Maple wood with a unicorn hair core, 11 and a half… Continue reading THE HARRY POTTER TAG
I know I’m not the only person who adds heaps and heaps of restaurants to their list of places they ‘want to try’ and then end up somewhere for food they’ve been approximately 45375 times before. So when Beth suggested trying Topolabamba (I’m definitely going to spell this wrong at some point so for this,… Continue reading TOPOLABAMBA ABERDEEN
I’ve been using Goodreads for a few years to track books I’ve read, am reading or want to read and I love it. It’s so good for keeping track of my progress or remembering which books I actually want to read next instead of choosing something random I’ve never heard of before. Each year, Goodreads… Continue reading I COMPLETED MY 2018 READING CHALLENGE WITH 5 MONTHS TO SPARE
This is a post I’ve had in the making for a few months… Who knew it would be so hard to come up with 26 things of different letters that were important to me. I can’t remember whose blog I originally saw this on because it was so long ago so I do apologise. Although… Continue reading A-Z OF ME
I am Shona’s (marginally) fitter older brother, Rory. She’d tell you I stay fit for the wrong reasons: my unhealthily competitive nature and to impress girls. She might have a point as I’m still not having that much luck with the latter. However, whatever my reasoning there is no doubt that getting fit and keeping… Continue reading FITNESS IS FOR EVERYONE: EVEN IF GYMS ARE NOT
What a week it has been. I am officially a GRADUATE. Graduation was one of the best days ever. It was so so special and I absolutely loved being surrounded by supportive friends and family. It was incredible to have (almost) everyone from the course come together for one last time in such a positive… Continue reading GRADUATING FROM RGU
This week, I graduate from my undergraduate degree! I have mixed emotions… On one hand I’m super excited to be moving on to the next chapter but I am a little scared to leave the people and the place I’ve felt secure at for the past four years. In terms of graduation itself… I genuinely… Continue reading GRADUATION DRESS SHOPPING: WHAT I LEARNED
