    The Seasons: Summer, Spring, Fall & Winter.

    The Autumn traditionally falls over the months of September to November. It is the lead up to the Winter, which is normally over the Christmas & New Year period but the weather in the UK is unpredictable – sometimes it isn’t what you expect at all…  Sometimes we have sunny weather in Autumn and sometimes it rains or snows. You have to be on your guard all year round and keep up with the weather reports too. I personally love to look at the snow but have trouble getting around in that weather. My favourite two seasons are definitely the more open seasons that are neither too hot or cold.…

    My Dream Future (a day in the life)

    I have been thinking about my life and how it seems to be going well recently, however, don’t we all think of our perfect life & what dreams we have for the future if you could change it… My perfect ideal day would go just like this… I wake up to my husband saying it is a weekend and we have the day to ourselves. We go downstairs to the smell of bacon and a breakfast being cooked. We sit at the table and eat our food with a glass of orange juice each, maybe apple juice instead. We look at the local paper and social media which shows what events are…

    Halloween 2018

    So it’s that time again where we all get dressed up and spooky. This is my opinion on Halloween. When I was a child I used to love the dressing up & Trick or Treating with family members. I remember one too many times I was dressed in a bin liner (I’m not a cheap inspo honestly) as a witch, with the hat & broomstick! I loved it even though it didn’t cost much and I only visited a few houses. This whole routine went on for a good ten years and I don’t remember if I even enjoyed it toward the end. I firmly believe that Halloween is for the children,…

    September = School, right?

    So it’s September already. Well, technically it’s mid-September 2018. As far as I can remember September always reminded me of school. Even now it still does. September in my head always reminds me of that “back to school” vibe that everyone in the blogging community uses year after year, well here’s my version… As a library volunteer with a library next to a school that often uses our services, it dawns on me when school is open & closed. We very often see the classes from the school come into the library to collect their books for the term, normally there is a theme such as animals or trains that the…

    Introduction to ITALIAN FRIDAYS

    Hello All, This is the first post to do with Italy. I first encountered the country Italy while researching about the Roman Era as a child. As I was watching a few documentaries based on the Roman era and glancing through books created by Mary Beard when I saw a program about Italian food and culture called “Italy Unpacked”. I was mesmerised by the content but unhappy I did not know more about the country and language, to understand it more. So this idea came about months after I finished watching the TV series. I am going to do a series of posts for everyone. I want to take both you, as…
