I am a massive, massive fan of Harry Potter, books, films, merchandise, clothes… the list goes on and on, I love it all. Strangely enough, until recently I had never visited the Warner Bros Studio Tour. I have three best friends Annie, Charlotte and Becky, we’ve been friends for a long time, and even though we live quite far apart now, I don’t think I will ever be as close to any one or love anyone quite like I do those girls. We have visited Oxford and we plan on visiting York, but as a special treat two of my best friends treated us all to Harry Potter studio tour tickets for our Christmas presents.
A sensation in Argentina and in the UK – Guillermo Martinez writes with a flair for the dramatic and mathematical ease – he easily kept me on the edge of my seat. I think myself a bit of a murder mystery aficionado, I thought I had the murderer pegged from relatively early on, but as with any good mystery, and adding the element of mathematical intrigue, I was actually still second guessing myself right to the end. #bookreviews #theoxfordmurders #murdermystery
The kids and I both probably spend too much time on our iPads and phones. I am not too fussed as I do believe technology is just going to be something normal in the future and I like my phone for social media, pinterest and my blog as much as my kids love youtube, netflix and lego games, but I don’t ever want them to think playing on computers, iPads, phones etc is the everything. As a family, we love adventures, being outdoors and doing silly things, but I don’t want technology to take that away, i am trying to find a happy medium. But as I love my technology, I can’t complain too much! But in my quest to get them to appreciate more than just technology, I am always trying to find fun things we can do as a family.
Firstly, an apology. I haven’t written as many blog posts as I had wanted to this last month, but I am hoping you will accept
Holly Martin has done it again, I think the idea of an around the world trip appeals to anyone. Seeing the world and trying all these exciting things, well it’s exciting and amazing – especially for someone like me who is scared of flying, the dream and the reality are two very different things. I loved this book as it was a great read but on a personal level, I love reading books where I get to discover the world and see more of it, as I may not get to discover the real thing. Holly writes each new place beautifully, and certainly makes me want to travel to all these places, but as with her heroine Eva, seeing the world through Holly’s eyes is just as wonderful.
I am not even sure how it happens, but some days do you ever find yourself looking for one thing on pinterest and six hours later found yourself, somewhere completely different and maybe discovering something new to get into. You know, like your looking for ideas for a birthday party and before you know it, your looking at crazy cat videos or like me, you’re watching interviews with boys with names like Rap Monster and Jimin and discovering J-Hope might be the most wonderfully happy person you’ve ever seen.
I love and hate those times in equal measures. I love finding new things, I hate when you realise you have to be up in about 3 hours and you haven’t slept yet.
