Dear cocktails, Thanks for giving me a great reason to meet up with people I love more often. Thanks also for being such a large collective group of drinks – it’s really fun trying to drink a hundred of you. Love Sarah – See other Friday Thanks here or visit the original inspiration for the project here.
The last book I remember devouring the minute it was released was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, even though we had a friend visiting that weekend. Wildly anti social, but I think he understood. I’m a pretty voracious reader, so there are quite a few books I’ve read in one sitting. Short books are no problem – I read two on a three hour coach journey recently – but there aren’t many books I’ve stayed up to read just because they were so good….Continue Reading “30 Day BC – Day 26 : A Book You Honestly Read In One Sitting”
I enjoyed Room by Emma Donaghue although I wouldn’t say it was my favourite book of last year. I didn’t think it was as amazing as everyone was saying it was, but it did put an original twist on a story, which I liked. The Hand That First Held Mine by Maggie O’Farrell was a beautiful book, and something I would never have picked up if it hadn’t have been assigned as our book group book. I’ve read a couple of hers since that I…Continue Reading “30 Day BC – Day 25 : Your Favourite Book Of Last Year”
As If I could pick just one? I almost inhaled my local library as a kid (moving on to Danielle Steele and Virginia Andrews when I’d finished reading the Young Adult section – possibly not the best idea in hindsight). I was practically Matilda. I used to read anything and everything I could get my hands on. I adored anything by Francine Pascal, Enid Blyton and R.L Stein – many a night was spend under the covers with a torch reading Point Horror and the…Continue Reading “30 Day BC – Day 24 : Your Favourite Book As A Child”
Dear Paperclips, Thanks for being reusable, unlike staples. I had some zebra striped ones as a kid and they always used to make me smile. Thanks for coming in a bunch of interesting shapes and colours. I bought some of you shaped like penguins for a friend recently and it totally made my day. Love Sarah – See other Friday Thanks here or visit the original inspiration for the project here.

You may or may not know this but Q and I actually officially got together during the early hours of my 27th birthday. This is awesome for two reasons: 1.We get to celebrate two things at once. Multi tasking. 2. Now there is only one date to remember he really has no excuse to forget either one. So we decided, to celebrate these two things, that we would book some time off and go away together. We’d both been craving some vitamin D and although…Continue Reading “Portugal, You Owe Me €74”
I think the majority of the authors I read are non British – I actually really struggle to find good British authors. (if you have any suggestions now is the time to speak up!) Obviously all the ones I’ve already mentioned a hundred times before: Stephen King, Augusten Burroughs, Douglas Coupland and Haruki Murakami. Although I don’t tend to read a lot of British authors I also don’t seem to branch out into non-American/Candian authors either so this question becomes harder to answer if you…Continue Reading “30 Day BC – Day 23 : Your Favourite Book By A Non-British Author”
The weekend was lovely. Jools and Ian came to visit us and bought homemade rocky road from Portsmouth and St John’s doughnuts from London. Both were incredible. (Nom!) We met up with a gaggle of twitter women and Saturday night was filled with cocktails, of which there are no photos. Oops! But I managed to tick another three off my life list wish of try 100 cocktails, which was ace. (& I didn’t wake up with a hangover, double bonus). For lunch we took Ian…Continue Reading “The Weekend In Pictures”
Dear 35mm film, Thanks for always bringing surprises. You’re expensive to shoot with so I don’t do it very often but the anticipation before receiving the photos back is one of the best feelings in the world. Thanks for making me wait, Love Sarah – See other Friday Thanks here or visit the original inspiration for the project here.
