Personality or Circumstance? (The one where I take the same test twice)

I was reading through the blogs on my dash the other day, as you do, and Sarah over at A Life Less Physical had a very interesting post about changes due to chronic illness (click on the linky to go read it). Her post was about taking a test that determined the best work situation… Continue reading Personality or Circumstance? (The one where I take the same test twice)

Summer Holidays Mean Family Fun

Memo Pad – July Books

This month has been a pretty bad reading month to be honest. I still managed to read four books but at times it was a bit of a struggle. I think I'm still in a slump because of a book hangover but fingers crossed I'm getting over that. And ending the month reading Artemis was… Continue reading Memo Pad – July Books

I'm back!! Okay so I got back from holiday last week but this is the first time I've gotten on the computer since so hello everyone!

Memo Pad: Book Reviews April (#1)

This is a bit of a weird Memo Pad. I read a lot of books this month (and last month because technically I read Matilda at the end of last month) and if I put all of the reviews in one post then this will be ridiculously long. Also, and more importantly, I went on… Continue reading Memo Pad: Book Reviews April (#1)
