Clare: a little update…

As you may have already noticed, I haven’t posted an entry for a little while. I do have many reviews I need to post, but having no computer (whilst in London) made things  difficult! I thought I’d write a little post all about the things that I’ve been up to recently.

London Adventures
Last week, I’ve been on a mini-adventure (can 5 days be classed as mini?) to London, on my own! I’ve been on a Photoshop course (with a company called Certitec) for the week with work, so I’ve had to explore London by myself! It was surprisingly less daunting than you think. Granted, I have felt a little lonely, but I did meet up with some friends, so that broke the week up. I suspected that I’d just say in the hotel room, but I actually ventured out and saw lots of great things, the London Eye, Big Ben, Covent Garden, Foyles; just to name a few.

Book Buying
This word never leaves my vocab’, does it? I’ve bought a few lovely books recently, and not just on my London trip. I was on a semi-book-buying-ban, but that didn’t last long! I have many a shelf covered in books that I should probably read before going out and spending more money elsewhere, but you only live once right?

Here is a selection of the books I’ve purchased and received:

  • Penguin Little Classics
  • Asking For It by Louise O’Neil
  • The Revolving Door of Life by Alexander McCall Smith
  • The Beast Within by

Exploring the countryside
I live in a little village in Wales and there’s miles and miles of countryside I can go to and explore. Tom and I visited Llangollen at the weekend and walked along the canal with our dog Mac. In total, it was just under 10 miles, which was actually quite enjoyable. It’s amazing the type of things that are available on your doorstep.

    Sounds a great full-on trip Clare – but with time to browse among books too!
    Last week I was walking on Skye – one of my favourite places – and at this time of year it doesn’t get dark till late.
    cheers

      It was a good trip, thanks Janet 😊 London is busy for me, but it’s nice to visit! Wow, I bet Skye was beautiful – fingers crossed you had good weather! 😊 x
