World Penguin Day: How You Can Help Our Feathered Friends

April 25th is World Penguin Day! 🐧 A day dedicated to the celebration of all 17 different species of this flightless bird, from the tiny Little Blue Penguin to the Emperor Penguin. Now some of you may know that penguins have been my favourite animal for over a decade, so I thought I’d take some time to celebrate these beautiful creatures here, on my blog.

The Mystery Blogger Award

A while ago Catherine of Shatter the Silence nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award. Which is an award given to “amazing bloggers” with “ingenious posts”, so thank you very much Catherine(!), I’m very humbled by your nomination. And happy to get involved.

My anxiety is heightened, my dad is suffering from the coronavirus, so I’m also worried about him. And I’m just hoping things get back to some kind of normality soon.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Tag

I’ve been watching Buffy since it first aired in the UK back in the late 90s and have re-watched it countless times since. Along with its spin-off show Angel. I know the show so well, I often find myself reciting the lines before the characters have the chance to. Which I’m told is very annoying by my family members! Buffy dealt with so many issues faced by both teenagers and young adults, from depression to addiction and, female empowerment and even sexual orientation. […]

The town itself is home to some stunning Georgian architecture, lovely parks, an array of shopping streets and more than 25 different events and festivals held throughout the year.

But while you may have heard of its more famous festivals such as the Cheltenham literature festival, which just so happens to be the world’s longest-running literary festival. Or The Cheltenham […]
