Before forcing upon you the annual photos of carved pumpkins I just wanted to share this with you, because I love it so much:
As you may know, every year me, my mum and some friends get together for our annual carving pumpkin night, and not once do we produce one that appears to be grinning form ear to ear. We print off stencils, poke around the lines and basically connect the dots (one day we may even ascend to carving freehand). But below you will find this year’s results:
1: American Werewolf in London
So, I said in the previous post that I’d tell you what I’ve been caught up in.
Well, while I’m tempted to spin you a tale of being unexpectedly whisked across the world on some amazing adventure Indiana Jones style, or perhaps a saga of being utterly wrapped up in the joys of my book and how I’ve almost finished the first draft I think the truth will have to suffice.

Not many people get to say that. Not many people have the honour of being in their hero’s presence and not many people get to exchange words with them.
But let me start from the beginning.
As you know from my post yesterday and probably the news that J.K. Rowling had a new book come out and she celebrated it at the Southbank Centre in London with a hoard of 900 fans. She spent the day itself on a plane coming down from Edinburgh and watched Men in Black 3 with her Husband and eldest daughter.

I have been addicted to and absolutely loved the Olympics and it is an affair that has kept on going with the Paralympics. The events for the latter have been astonishing and Ellie Simmonds is my new hero. The sport has been tense and thrilling, Team GB inspiring and each gold medal moment is a moment etched in history.
I love it, I love the fact that I’ve been watching sports I don’t usually, during the Olympics I was an avid follower of the Taekwondo, the dressage and the show jumping, at the moment I love the swimming, wheelchair basketball and the visually impaired football. Continue reading
I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a while, I even made a start on it but my phone refused to save the draft, so second time lucky I suppose.
I would like to say thank you very much to Sharon from Day in the Life of a Busy Gal who awarded it to me. Continue reading
Heya guys! I know I’ve been sort of quite lately, but I’ve been sort of busy with this and that (this being job searching and that being writing my book).
However, amidst the this and that I have started writing for WeekendNotes and I review a few things in London for them (at my own discretion). I don’t live in London, but I go there a lot and figured that I’d have a lot to write anyway.
So you can read what I have if you want, you can find it here. My first article published was one which I included in my Major Project so expect it to be full of Harry Potter goodness! I would also be incredibly grateful if you could subscribe to my articles on there as well. Please…..with cherry on top.
Anyway I have a few blogs that I want to write so hopefully I won’t be quiet for much longer!
Free Pussy Riot Toronto Rally (Photo credit: Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla)
Okay, so I get that things are different in Russia. I get that it’s stricter there and that things we couldn’t conceive happening here happen there.
Like being arrested for protesting.
Sure Pussy Riot performed in a church/cathedral wearing balaclavas but when you really get down to the nitty-gritty of it all they were doing was protesting. Everyone has the right to protest, everyone should be able to protest without the fear of being thrown in jail. Continue reading
Ok so I’m pretty late it this but ahhh well!
I went to see Avenue Q last week on Friday 13th (wasn’t that unlucky I have to say). I was given tickets by my boyfriend for my birthday and the show was absolutely awesome! It’s controversial and tackles everything from porn to racism, there’s a gay character who has trouble accepting himself, there’s even a scene similar to that infamous Team America one.
