Sam and I only took hand luggage to Goa so all the books were on my Kindle – I much prefer reading physical books but when I’m away, my Kindle is my best friend. While I was away, I hit my reading challenge target of 75 books in 2018 and I was so proud of myself!

  • Halloween Brownies

    October 25, 2018 Hels

    One of my Halloween traditions is to watch Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. I’ve always loved the idea that there are different lands for the different celebrations, Halloween Town, Christmas Town etc. I think there’s a bit of a debate as to whether this should be watched at Halloween or at Christmas, but for me, it’s an autumnal, Halloween film.
