It’s time for my blog to take a break. No big deal, just that sometimes blogging is fun and every now and then it’s less fun. I’m going to stop posting for a bit until I feel like it again. In the meantime, I can be found almost everywhere else on the internet, including Twitter,… Continue reading Hiatus
As usual, in December I was going out of my way to try new things. It’s a habit I strongly recommend and I always enjoy looking back at the end of the month to see what I’ve been able to try. Also as usual, December was a busy month. I don’t know about you, but… Continue reading New things I tried in December 2017
…but I am tired! We got back from our trip to Croatia yesterday evening after a long day of travelling. The holiday was amazing – I’ll tell you all about it in the next few days – but it’s always good to come home. Today will be spent working my way through a mountain of… Continue reading I’m back!
It’s nearly Mothers’ Day! At least, in the UK it is. Here we’ll be celebrating mothers and grandmothers on Sunday 26th March and quite right too.

Another political post? What is becoming of me? Today is the day when the people of the UK will head to the polls to vote on whether or not they would like to stay in the EU.

I’ll talk about science news because I get excited about it, I want to share it and I can usually help to explain it (at least within some fields).… Continue reading Sad news
It’s Friday! What are your weekend plans? If you’re lucky enough to have a nice, relaxing weekend lined up, here are a few things I recommend for reading material: A long read: The Minecraft Generation.

I only joined Instagram in 2015. I know, where was I, right? I guess I just didn’t really take many pictures before that but for some reason at some point I saw an Instagram picture on Twitter and I thought I’d give it a try. I am not a photographer. At all. I point my phone… Continue reading Favourite Instagram posts from 2015
