Sunday Stories #19

Good morning, how are you doing today? This week’s Sunday Stories comes to you from my current position snuggled up in bed before I go and cuddle the dog. Perfect Sunday morning. My plans for today include reading, writing my last uni assignment of the year and drinking lots of coffee. Got 2,000 words to write …

Sunday Stories #18

It’s been a while since I penned a Sunday Stories, so hello if you’re new to these posts! Normally I do a little round-up for things I’ve been loving this week, mainly book related but sometimes not. It’s a welcome pause to reflect on each week and share some of my discoveries with you. Disclaimer: …

2021 Reading Goals

2020, the longest year that ever was, is over. As the seconds counted down to midnight on New Year’s Eve, we collectively held our breath, ready to exhale and say goodbye to that strange, tumultuous year. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think 2021 is a big reset button and we’ll all be back to …

Storysmith

It’s been a while since my last bookshop post, but never fear because I visited an absolute beauty of a bookshop last week that I can’t wait to tell you about. I really have missed going to bookshops during these last few months. It’s one of my charmingly endearing traits (ahem) that I can’t walk …

Sunday Stories #15

Good morning! I’m writing this week’s Sunday Stories whilst munching on my breakfast and feeling content. Yesterday we met some friends for a BBQ in a local park and it was so lovely to be out in the sun, feeling somewhat normal! Today’s plan is to catch up on some reading so let’s crack on …
