* * * * * ‘You should never judge a book by its cover’ This is one of the most moronic things a human being has ever said. What utter ridiculousness. Half of the fun of discovering new books to read, is letting one seductively catch your eye, holding it in your hands, stroking its back,…… Continue reading The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry: a review
Well here we are, the first of many blogs written by me in 2017. You may remember my post before Christmas absolutely adamant that I was going to stick to the plan I’d set myself. And I did, mostly. Over the Christmas period (two weeks for me), I maintained. I don’t think in my 23 and…… Continue reading ‘You did WHAT over Christmas?!’

I wrote about my progress in a Facebook status on Tuesday, and about a million of my friends liked it in support, which made me all thankful and teary. I think…… Continue reading The lazy person’s guide to exercise (or not)
