The World of David Walliams Novel 2 – ‘Mr Stink’

“Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it is correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well. He was the stinkiest stinky stinker who ever lived.”

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Last night I turned the final pages of All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It was a really profound read. And the strangest thing kept happening to me…every time I picked it up, and began to read, I had the sudden yearning to write.

The World of David Walliams Novel 1 – ‘The Boy in the Dress’

The World of David Walliams Novel 1 – ‘The Boy in the Dress’

Danielle’s Beautiful Baby Shower

Danielle’s Beautiful Baby Shower

What an exciting day!

A beautiful occasion for an even more beautiful mother-to-be.

In July, my close friend Danielle told us that she and her partner, Dan, were expecting their first baby together. To say I was excited was an understatement. When I found out it was going to be a girl…well, let’s just say that I may have gone to the shops and broken the bank on girly gifts.

Serious Blogging Special Part 1: Christmas Bunting
