Autumn in Bruges.

Welcome to Bruges, Belgium, a little town of bridges, gingerbread houses overlooking the canals, colourful buildings and brilliantly vibrant orange trees in late autumn. I visited a friend in her very ‘grammable new home, where I spent the lovely last glimpse of warm weather wandering the cobblestone streets, crossing bridges and stepping out of the […]

Five Favourite Things: October.

October’s over, but I can look back with a little appreciation at the things I enjoyed through the month. October leaves Everything is brilliantly orange and gold in Berlin right now, and I’m here for it. In October I took myself for a few walks at the crisply golden hour of the afternoon, when the […]

November Goals.

November, November. The year is very rapidly drawing to a close, and so I must once again take stock of the ambitious goals I set myself for the remaining days. Last month I wanted to write a set amount and read a set amount that I did not accomplish. Perhaps November, with its cold nights […]

October Goals.

And onwards into October. To set the scene, Berlin has descended into a hard and fast winter, where I’ve been caught out unexpectedly in 2 degree temperatures with only a jacket because I didn’t know it would be so cold, so fast.

January Book Wrap Up.

In January I’ve read 5 books, although 3 of them were Harry Potter, so I won’t go into details about those because you know them all already. I do a HP reread every few years and it’s always an absolute delight, naturally. This time is no different. Here’s what else I read…

The books I read in 2018.

In 2018 I read 51 books, after pledging to read 50 in my Goodreads challenge. I’ve seen a few other book bloggers do some analysis of figures of their reading lists and I thought I’d take a look at my own list and crunch the numbers. If you’re a numbers person, this one’s for you.

My 2018 highlights.

Okay so I know we’re more than a week into the New Year but I let it go by without really taking a moment to be proud of myself for my little accomplishments within the inconsequential social construct of the calendar year, so here you go. I know everyone hates these self-congratulatory posts, but as […]
