In case you haven’t heard I got married last week on 23rd October! It was a fantastic day that couldn’t have gone any better, but we couldn’t have done it without the help of our fabulous suppliers. Good suppliers really are the secret to a perfect wedding day, taking all the responsibility out of your hands and doing an amazing job so you don’t have to! If you’re planning a wedding, I can’t recommend any of the suppliers that we used enough – they helped everything to go so smoothly and created our dream autumnal wedding day. Continue reading
I’ve always been aware that there are books written about the TV show Supernatural, but while I’m a huge fan of the TV series I’d never picked up one of the many books on offer.

I completed it once, many moons ago when I had no job and thus a lot of free time on my hands. During July, they run Camp NaNoWriMo which encourages NaNo fans to set and hit their own target within the month of July. Continue reading
What’s the actual definition of a geek? They’re usually people who are super enthusiastic about certain hobbies – about a book series, a tv series or a film or a kind of music.

I’m just dropping by to share my thoughts about how much I find maths creeping into my writing.
