• Blogging,  Food & Drink

    My journey with food, & beyond.

    I have been musing about what to add on my blog and I thought why not Food & Drink? Let me take you on a journey as to why I love this topic so much… When I was a child I loved going out to places and loved to eat a lot. A favourite place I used to love in Cardiff Bay was a fish and chip restaurant centred next to Techniquest. It was a lovely place and it had some memories I will treasure forever of going there with my dearly beloved nan. Scroll on to 2000s, I was an anti-food snob and barely ate anything but ready meals and…

    Exciting New Blog Changes in 2019.

    This blog is going to experience big changes as of 2019. I felt it was time to add more content and topics close to my heart. The topics I am going to add to my blog include Italy, Food & drink. I think you will love it! The reason behind this move is that I felt books are not a big enough part of my life. I love days out with food & drink. I am also learning the Italian language so thought it would be ideal to talk about on my blog. I go out quite often and feel that my readers would love me to document my experiences…

    Library Volunteering: 1 YEAR ON.

    As you might be able to tell from the title I have now been a library volunteer locally for over a year and what a year its been. I have had my ups and downs but overall helping out has been a good experience & I aim to carry on for another year… Meeting new people In a library, it is impossible to go a shift without seeing and greeting new people. They are either regular members of the library or new-comers. Sometimes you bump into people you know outside the library and start a conversation and get distracted. I love chatting to members about books and how their life is…
