As you may or may not be aware, I attended Summer in the City 2014 and so I feel like sharing with you all of my experience and time there, and some advice to share with you if you’re thinking of attending the event in the near future.
My hometown isn’t regarded as the best place to live, but with views like this I’m not complaining. This was taken a few nights ago when I met up with my friend Mollie for a walk along the beach, and a catch up.
This is what I love about my hometown, the sea. I only have to walk for ten minutes and the deep blue is in front of me, and its the best place to go during the summer.
Well I’m back from my weekend away. I definitely needed the break from everything and I’m feeling refreshed.
So let me tell you what’s been going on. I know I don’t often talk about what’s going on in my life but I would like to perhaps once a month just give you a snippet into what I’ve been up to.
Center Parcs is a short break company that has many places in the UK in woodland areas where families, couples, friends etc, can take a wide range of sporting activities. I’m not the most sporty person in the world but even I enjoy it a lot. I’ve been going there since I can remember and its never been a disappoint to me. Its a beautiful place to go, you’re in the woods with all the animals in these wooden lodges as your accommodation, and its just so peaceful.
What made this short break even more special was that my best friend Mollie came with me.
Today is my Mum’s birthday and despite having to work in the morning, we managed to use up the afternoon by visiting a town close by my hometown called Whitstable, a seaside town on the North Kent coastline.
I confess with this post it is strictly going to be about what I loved about The Fault In Our Stars (TFIOS) the film, not the book!
To cut this review short…I can’t fault this film at all. I will confess it did make me cry as much as the book did, even just from when Augustus and Hazel decide that “okay” is their “always.”
Recently I’ve been steering away from talking about books, and throwing recommendations and reviews at you by sharing different aspects of my life; what I’ve been up to and what’s important to me. So today I’m sharing another aspect, where I enjoy attending concerts.
On Saturday (24/05/14), I traveled up to London with my friend Jodie to see one of my favourite bands, Arctic Monkeys. As well as the main act they were accompanied by support bands; Tame Impala, Miles Kane and Royal Blood.
It was a great event, and I had previously seen Arctic Monkeys back on their 2011 tour with their album ‘Suck it and See’ and I knew that this was a band I wanted to carry on seeing live. The atmosphere was incredible, and it was my first open air event.
Recently I’ve been thinking about what really matters in life, I think every one of us gets caught up in silly things that don’t necessarily matter as much as what other things do in our lives.
My Grandad means the world to me, and this picture is by far my favourite of us.
I admire and love my Grandad so much that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to convey just how much he means. Other than my Dad he is the greatest man I’ve ever known. I may not know everything about my Grandad and his life but the small things I do know are that he was in the RAF (Royal Air Force) and after several years of service he worked for a company called Amphenol who make cables for various appliances- not incredibly exciting but still a valid job and something he enjoyed. I mean it once took him on a trip to China, so it can’t all be bad can it. He later retired at the age of 65, and now he’s driving my Gran mad.
Hello everyone I’m Emma, and I have created this blog as a place where I can share with others my love for books.
I’ve always thought about writing book reviews but it was only until the start of 2014 that I decided to write them up, and file them away on a blog where I can share them with other book lovers. No doubt they will be incredibly amateurish, but I guess my writing will improve as I read other reviews myself and hopefully develop my own style. Not only do I want this blog to be a place where I can write my review to share with others, but I hope it becomes a way of encouraging more people to read. These days it seems that we’re glued to our phones and tablets, and I find it incredibly sad when I see children following in our footsteps and not even picking up a book. Books give me so much joy, and I think that’s the message I want to put across with this blog.
