Dear Cherry Coke,

Thanks for being just sickly enough that I can’t drink you every day without regretting it. It’s good to have boundaries and you help to enforce the knowledge that a little every now and again is better than too much.

Love

Sarah

Dear Cardiff,

Thanks for being so easy to fall in love with. You have quiet spaces and an awesome library and you feel like home to this redhead – no mean feat to someone who grew up 200 miles south west of you.

Love

Sarah

Dear Origami,

Thanks for being something I have to concentrate on – I’m often guilty of ‘multi-tasking’ and missing things, oops. It feels like good practice to sit down and give my focus to something completely. Plus you’re pretty, always a bonus.

Love

Sarah

March Book Update

Posted by in Books, Projects

01. NEW Janet Evanovich – Foul Play
02. NEW Simon Rich – Elliot Allagash
03. NEW Janet Evanovich – Notorious Nineteen
04. RR Janet Evanovich – Visions of Sugar Plums
05. NEW Janet Evanovich – Plum Lovin’
06. NEW Enid Blyton / Pamela Cox – Winter Term at Malory Towers
07. NEW Enid Blyton / Pamela Cox – Secrets at Malory Towers
08. NEW Enid Blyton / Pamela Cox – Goodbye Malory Towers
09. NEW Marika Cobbold – Frozen Music
10. NEW Enid Blyton / Pamela Cox – Second Form at Malory Towers

This month I mostly relived my childhood by catching up on the new Malory Towers and St Clare’s stories that Pamela Cox wrote after Enid Blyton’s death. I also finally finished Frozen Music and was thoroughly underwhelmed, unfortunately. Elliot Allagash was better than I expected and Notorious Nineteen wasn’t the best Stephanie Plum novel but certainly wasn’t the worst. I’ve got some long term ‘to be read’ books to try and get through in April as well as Alone in Berlin for book group so next month’s list should be decidedly more adult! :)

I’m still working my way through my read 1000 new books for my Life List, I started tracking those in 2011 and I’m up to 174.

Télégramme Magazine – Issue 5

Posted by in A Little Conversation, Projects, Télégramme

Telegramme Magazine Issue 5 Out Now!

Has it really been six months already? Issue 4 was published just before the wedding (yes, I know, I’m mad) so I guess it must be time for Issue 5 now, crikey. Featuring fantastic photos and illustrations from Agustina Lapenda, Leni Kauffman, Cassoday Harder, Emily Coghlan and Sarah Anne Wharton Kuhn this one really is a great one so I hope you’ll take a look.

This next bit might be deemed a little cheeky but my blog my rules:

Télégramme will always be a free venture. I don’t accept advertising so I make zero money and couldn’t care less, it’s all about showcasing these fantastic artists. Which is fine, money isn’t an issue and it costs very little to create. However, since I don’t accept advertising I rely on word of mouth to let people know about each new issue, which isn’t always the easiest thing to procure.

So, what I’m asking is that if you like this issue that you please considering sharing it. Tweet it (@telegrammemag), post it on Facebook (FB page here), write a blog post about it – whatever you feel like doing is a-okay by me. Many thanks in advance from this grateful redhead.

Dear Ice Skating,

Thanks for being a sport that I’m actually okay at. Also thanks for being one of the only things I’m better at than Q – it’s nice to be graceful for a change ;) I loved you so much I bought my own skates and they never fail to make me smile – you’re the sport that keeps on giving! Don’t ever change.

Love

Sarah
