The Bucket List Blogfest!

The Bucket List Blogfest!

I’m taking part in a really fun blogfest today: The Bucket List Blogfest hosted by SwimWriteRun. The idea is to share the things you most want to do before you kick the bucket. I’m quite an ambitious person and I’m still pretty young, so there are tons of things I want to do before I die. But I tried to narrow it down to the top 20 things that are most important to me. So here goes. My Bucket List1) Have a family. I love kids and it was always part of the plan for me to have my own […]

My New Year’s Resolutions 2011

My New Year’s Resolutions 2011

Okay, this post probably should have been written on the 1st January…sorry about that.

The Magic of Harry Potter: 7 Reasons Why I love the Books

The Magic of Harry Potter: 7 Reasons Why I love the Books

Let’s make it clear that I’m a BIG Harry Potter fan. I started reading the books when I was about ten or eleven, and as my birthday is the day before Harry’s (30th July) I could really relate to him, being almost the same age. I can remember reading it to my little sister and doing all the voices, dressing up as Dumbledore for her birthday party, going to see the first film and being so excited that the world I imagined was coming to life. I remember camping with my friends at high school on the night that The […]
