So this week your theme was old. How did you do? I wasn't sure at first but then I remembered an old family (pocket) bible that my gran gave me. I took a few different pictures but this inscription is just lovely. I've no idea who Uncle Jim is but never mind. I was touched … Continue reading Old
I just wanted to say I'll leave it to your capable imaginations which one was me at eleven o'clock when my brother came home with a bunch of friends -_- Nevertheless it was an alright New Year. Hope you all enjoyed it. And remember it. The past year has been a hard one in a … Continue reading Happy New Year!
Hi guys! It's been a while since I posted anything other than the writing challenges so on the subject of literature, I thought I'd share my top ten books with you. There's no particular order but they should all be on your Christmas list and if you've read them, go read them again. 10. Inkheart - … Continue reading Ten Worlds You Need to Visit

I find it somewhat difficult to believe that you are all the strong and silent types so why not share your … Continue reading Writing Challenge – Week 25
Hello lads, Having been up until fruitcake o' clock several nights this week doing university essays (the first was my fault for not being more diligent, the second was just too interesting and I kept going off through warrens of too-complex-for-a-BA-student style thoughts) I haven't really felt like either reading or writing this week. I … Continue reading Writing Challenge – Week 13
Hello lads!

It is pretty low profile here in the UK as far as I understand but … Continue reading Book Thief
