In a world where blogs are used by organisations and individuals to demonstrate their knowledge and expertise in their niche area, it seems rather counter-productive to be admitting I feel inexperienced at something I have been doing for so long.
I know it’s April Fool’s day, but this is no laughing matter.
Just after New Year’s Day had dawned, my dad made the comment that 2020 was going to be the Year of Vision. He was making a joke on the fact that perfect vision is 20/20, but there was some poignancy in there as well (possibly inadvertent, it was hard to tell). As I make my… Continue reading 2020: A Year of Vision
Hi everyone! I’m back.
Whether you’ve missed me or not, it is good to be getting back into the Blogosphere...
I’ve just completed my run at the #7BooksChallenge. If you haven’t been aware of this on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, its quite a simple challenge to take part in. You simply post a picture of a book cover every day for seven days and nominate someone each day to take part. When you post, don’t… Continue reading #7BooksChallenge

For me, ‘Dry January’ had nothing to do with abstaining from alcohol for 31 days, but is more to do with the fact that at this time of the year, I really struggle… Continue reading Happy New(ish) Year!

I, myself, recall being cast as an angel in a play at nursery… Continue reading The Flint Street Nativity
This is not a film that I watch consistently every year, but it is one that warms my heart each time it makes it way out of the DVD case. For those who have not seen this film (either the original 1947 flick, or the 1994 remake), be aware that SPOILERS will follow! Miracle on… Continue reading Miracle on 34th Street
I think it is safe to say that I am about as much a film nerd as I am a book nerd. I also just happen to be the biggest kid when it comes to Christmas. Given that films are the whole point of Christmas (aside from the obvious – chocolate), it seemed appropriate for… Continue reading What’s your favourite Christmas film?
