My Dad

In the 16 days since my Dad died, so much has happened in the world.  So much that he won’t ever know and all I want to do is talk to him about it all, hear his opinion.  I was in Foyles today and saw three books I want to recommend to him.  I watched … More My Dad

I’m the Queen, I’ll live forever, I’ll never die, I’ll live to a million

 I spent a lovely couple of hours with my Mum today, wandering in and out the shops in Windsor.  It’s an odd place for me, as I grew up in Berkshire so Windsor was just another town for us to shop in.  I love getting to the top of Peascod Street, one of the main shopping streets, … More I’m the Queen, I’ll live forever, I’ll never die, I’ll live to a million

It’s just nice to meet another human that shares my affinity for elf culture

I unashamedly love Christmas.  I love getting gifts, I love giving gifts, I love the food, and I love being around my family.  And I’ve been lucky enough to have some pretty great Christmases.  This year was no different. We stayed at my in-laws Christmas Eve and opened our first gifts there when we woke … More It’s just nice to meet another human that shares my affinity for elf culture
