Last year I made my very long to-read list more manageable by periodically selecting ten books to read from it. That way, instead of having to pick from nearly 100 books, I only had to pick from 10, which is a much easier choice.

Last Friday P and I celebrated having spent 6 years together. Six whole years! How the time has flown.

Each day… Continue reading 100 happy days
When my sister and her partner visted in December (did I mention we went to see Mogwai and it was amazing?) we made plans to meet up when I was next in Leeds and visit one of their favourite restaurants, Bundobust.
