Why pets are great for your mental health

We've all heard the theories about pets providing an abundance of health benefits to their owners but it's something I took very little notice of until around five years ago and since I've being a cat owner myself for the last 18 months I've come to realise that pet's really are wonderful in more ways than one. Now stick with me here because I truly believe that cats or any pet for that matter can have such an amazing impact on your mental health, this isn't just the ramblings of a cat lady!

The Book Shelves: Harry Potter Part 2

Josh and I love collecting nice books, before we lived together we always used to joke that we'd bought another 'shelf book' when we picked up display-worthy books. When we did finally move in together it was a challenge to find somewhere to display these beautiful books until finally we settled on a bookcase at the top of the stairs. So that's where our book collection now lives. The shelves can be split into 5 categories, Disney, Harry Potter, The Beatles, Star Wars and magazines/programmes. I thought it would be fun to delve in our book shelves and share our lovely collection of books with you all, so today we'll be looking at our Harry Potter (and Fantastic Beasts) book collection with the focus being on the stories themselves. We covered our collection of factual Harry Potter books in an earlier post.

Book Review: Frost Hollow Hall

Frost Hollow Hall by Emma Carroll Review
Tilly's heart sinks. Will's at the door of their cottage, daring her to come ice-skating up at Frost Hollow Hall. No one goes near the place these days. Rumour has it that the house is haunted... Ten years ago the young heir, Kit Barrington, drowned there in the lake. But Tilly never turns down a dare. 
Then it goes horribly wrong. The ice breaks, Tilly falls through and almost drowns. At the point of death, a beautiful angel appears in the water and saves her. Kit Barrington's ghost. 
Kit needs Tilly to solve the mystery of his death, so that his spirit can rest in peace. In order to discover all she can, Tilly gets work as a maid at Frost Hollow Hall. But the place makes her flesh crawl. It's all about the dead here, she's told, and in the heart of the house she soon discovers all manner of dark secrets...
