Films From My Childhood: Chicken Run

When I was a kid, I had regular obsessions with different movies. Yes, I’m aware, I was a weird little thing even back then. Anyway, it got me thinking about a new series, where I look at some of the films that filled my childhood. There were certainly lots of Disney films in there, don’t… Continue reading Films From My Childhood: Chicken Run

Lessons From the Classroom – English

I recently discovered a folder full of my old school reports - literally from reception right up to my final year of sixth form. My Mum kept them all over the years and gave me the folder a few years ago, and I only just came across it again. One evening, I got a bit… Continue reading Lessons From the Classroom – English

Despite that, my 29th birthday on the 4th May was still a good one, and this year, since discovering and falling in love with Baby Yoda - sorry, Grogu - I didn’t even mind that people were… Continue reading 29 | Another Bloody Lockdown Edition

Lessons From Lockdown: 8 Things I’ve Learned One Year On

I’m writing this post on the 23rd March 2021. Today marks a year since Boris announced that we were going into lockdown here in the UK. At 12pm, there was a minute's silence to remember everyone who had lost their lives as a result of Covid-19 pandemic.
