Days Out: Classic Car Show

Last Sunday Josh and I headed to Locke Park, a large park in our town to check out the classic car event that was being held there. Thanks to the glorious weather, it made for a lovely day out. We were hoping to stick around and catch at least part of the dog show that was being held there too but unfortunately it didn't start until later in the afternoon and we had somewhere else to be. There is a similar event happening in August though so we're hoping to head back then for the dog show.

Book Review: How To Stop Time

How to stop time by Matt Haig review
Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen a lot, and now he craves an ordinary life. 

Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - working as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. Here he can teach kid about wars and witch hunts as if he'd never witnessed them first hand. He can try and tame the past that is fast catching up with him. The only thing Tom must not do is fall in love.

This Is Me

Things I won't apologise for
All too often we apologise for things that make us, us. Things we like, goals, hobbies, life choices, the list could go on for things we say "sorry" for. But why do we do it? We feel the need to apologise, to explain, to justify our decisions and interests. "Oh I know it seems silly/childish but I really like collecting X" or "I don't think I want X because..." Well as I approach my late twenties I've realised it's time I stopped doing this. I will talk about my choices, my hobbies, my goals until I'm blue in the face, but I'll no longer feel ashamed, apologise or justify my decision. There's no need to, they're all part of what makes me, me. So here is a list of things I'll no longer be saying sorry for or feeling embarrassed about.

Summer 2018 Bucket List

I always have a list of things I'd like to do in summer, Josh and I work in schools so we're lucky enough to get 6 weeks off work right in the middle of summer. Usually though, I have all these nice ideas and none of them ever happen. So this year I'm writing a summer bucket list, a list of all the simple things I want to do this summer. By writing it down I'm hoping I'll remember to do them all!
