    Oh Crepe that was good

    Some of my fondest memories as a child was making scotch pancakes (which I believe are similar to the North American pancake) with my mum, and sometimes at school. Usually enjoyed with a thick layer of butter on top, or a sprinkle of lemon juice with icing sugar. I’ve always been known for my obsession with sweet foods and cheerful delights. Now I know that there is a a difference between pancake and crepes, but to be honest I have been confused by these in the past. Am I the only one? Whilst I’m on the honest path I would also like to share my dislike for crepes that even…

    Take a moment to appreciate

    I’ve recently decided that Saturdays are Me days, which means out of the business of life this will be the day I take guilt free pleasure in doing what I want, and generally having fun! I think it’s especially important to do living in a city to full of life and constantly moving – As a writer (and a human) I also believe it’s good to be inspired and refuel, with the things that feed my soul. Yesterday, whilst working on my secret project I stumbled across the beauty of these beauties. I know it’s only trees to many, but it was such a beautiful day (albeit cold) and the…

    Editing thy novel: My new abode

    As I have a few days off I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to spend hours and hours on my novel. I even found a new abode yesterday, which has the best hot chocolate in the South West, and unfortunately due to creative reasons I won’t be able reveal this haven just yet. However, I would like to add and let you in on my frustration. Yesterday I managed to edit three whole pages before I was distracted by my shopping list, which I had to go home to cook. Today, I’ve managed to edit 5 pages so far, but the daunting prospect that I am only 28…

    Sunset adventures

    Hello, Sorry it’s been a bit quite on the blog front. I’ve been busy writing, and working on a few new projects. After a busy Christmas break back home, I’ve been catching up on some sleep and working hard to finish editing my long awaited novel. Thanks to a generous gift from mum and dad, I’ve been blessed with a rather nazi DSLR, which has served as a great distraction and fuelled my passion for taking pictures to a new level. I can’t express how much I love this camera, and how excited I am to have just received my tripod and light box, (which I still have to set up).…

    If you like a lot of biscuit, join a club

    Does anyone remember the catchy tune for CLUB biscuits? If you do, then you’ll recognise the tag line that I used to title today’s post. It’s just a quick one. I’m currently prompting myself up in Starbucks with a Carmel Macchiato (and oddly not a Toffee Nut latte). Starbucks white cups are bag. The red cups are being phased out. As a fan of Starbucks’s marketing efforts, and a shameful gold card holder I notice these things. However, before I go on a rant about Starbucks, and carmel drizzle I want to introduce to you my new book and club. I “borrowed” this book from my dad’s bookshelf when home…

    New Year, New Opportunity 2015

    I’d like to wish you a very happy new year! 2015 is officially here, and after dancing till 4am, it is safe to say that I am well and truly hungover (and I wasn’t even drinking). I hope you all had a great New Years Eve, and day. I happily lay in bed till lunch, then headed out for a full English at Frankie and Benny’s with my bestie – There is nothing like a fry-up and fresh orange to cure a hangover. On the subject of food, I would just like to say that I normally go to BHS on these occasions as they do a 6, 8 or…
