6 years…and a whole lot more

So it’s been six whole years since I started blogging. Six years. Not only does that make me feel old (I was 13 at the time) but also accomplished. I never thought I’d last this long.

I WANT TO READ YOUR BLOG

I Want To Read Your Blog

For a while now, I’ve used Bloglovin to keep up my blog reading. It’s helped me get a better overview of what’s happening in the blogosphere, and gives me an easy one-stop place to check all the blogs I want to read. I love it.

As a follow up to my previous post about seeing Kate Bush (KATE. IN THE FLESH), here is a quick post having just seen THE SPECTACLE. I don’t want to give a review of Before the Dawn – but I do want to spend a few words making a few observations. WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS. Kate … Continue reading

Kate Bush Hounds of Love

Kate Bush – My Favourites.

This post is a quick intermission between my regular, bookish posts. It’s no secret that I love Kate Bush, and it’s even less of a secret, if you follow me on twitter, that I’m seeing her LIVE IN CONCERT on Friday. Yes, I was one if those lucky ones (WE HAPPY FEW), and I feel … Continue reading
