Blogmas Day Eleven: A Harry Potter Christmas Tree βš‘οΈπŸŽ„

Hi guys πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

So every year we have two Christmas trees (because why have one when you can have two!!)

I have already posted about our regular, lounge Christmas tree but, we also have a very special Christmas tree in our bedroom…

**Drum roll***

It’s a Harry Potter themed tree!

(What a suprise 🀣)

Originally I used bits of memorabilia to decorate my tree with a Sorting Hat topper, but as more and more Harry Potter stuff has become available (thanks Warner Bros and Primark!!) I have built up quite an extensive collection of baubles.

Most of them are from Primark sets but a couple are from the Studio Tour in Watford, as are the ribbons.

Without further ado, lets take a look at the different stages I went through to create my awesome Harry Potter themed tree.


First up…

Lights

They have had a little upgrade this year… but what could be more magical than star shaped fairy lights in the four house colours (nothing, exactly!)

After that…

Tinsel

I go for red and gold as although all Hogwarts Houses are represented on the tree anything like tinsel or bows are very much in a Gryffindor colour scheme.

Next…

Baubles

As I said, alot of the sets come with a bauble for each house, so all are represented… but more heavily represented are mine (Gryffindor) and my husbands (Hufflepuff) favourite houses.

I bought two new sets of baubles this year (from Primark)… the top one is from a set of four and each bauble is clear with cute, thin tinsel inside to correspond with its Hogwarts House… the tinsel also has lots of tiny little stars in it. The house emblem and name is also written on the front in the same colour font.

These are my favourites so far. They are so pretty.

I also picked up another set with four baubles. Each one says something from the series, eg: ‘Platform 9 3/4, Lumos, Forbidden Forest & Golden Snitch’

Then..

Ribbons

Gryffindor themed of course!

And Finally…

The topper

I bought this in the sale last Christmas time. I think I got it just after Christmas so it was a bargain.

This is the first year I will have used it. It looks great.


Here is the final tree! – Looking super magical if I do say so myself πŸ˜‰


How is your decorating going?

Until Next Time,

What have I read so far… 2022 edition πŸ“š

Hi guys πŸ‘‹πŸ»

We are halfway through 2022 (HOW!?!) So I thought I would do a halfway round up of what I have read so far…

So far…

Harry Potter and the Philosphers Stone: Minalima Illustratred edition

I know what you’ve done by Dorothy Koomson

Cometh the Hour by Jeffrey Archer

22 Britannia Road by Amanda Hodgkinson

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling

Her majesty the Queen investigates… The Windsor Knot by SJ Bennett

Trust me by T M Logan

The Sanitorium by Sarah Pearse

The Land of Stories: An Authors Odyssey by Chris Colfer

The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley

Love, Locked down by Beth Reckles

Nalas World by Dean Nicholson

This was a man by Jeffrey Archer

Midnight is a lonely place by Barbra Erskine

Walking on Sunshine by Giovanna Fletcher

Wrong Place, Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister

The Summer Fair By Heidi Swain

The Baby is not mine by Oyinkan Braithwaite

The Donor by Clare Mackintosh


1. My Favourite book so far: ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Time’

This is an absolutely fantastic book. It had me at the synopsis – never have I sent a synopsis to so many people because it sounds SO good. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I didn’t want to put it down. The characters and their relationships were lovely and it was a great reading experience.

2. The most gripping so far: ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Tim’ & ‘The Hunting Party’

These were both brilliant books for making you say ‘Just one more page’. There was lots of drama, lots going on and lots to keep enticing you to the end.

3. My Least Favourite so far: I know what You’ve done.

Simply because I didnt find it as gripping as Dorothy’s other books and I found the characters less likeable. It did have a good few twists though.

4. Easiest to read: ‘Love Locked Down

It was weird reading a book about the madness that was the beginning of the pandemic but it was quite cool reading about something that you’ve actually been through in a relatively light hearted way. I liked the variety of characters.

5. One I would recommend: ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Time.’

The time loop and just the sheer depth of the plot ans suspense made it a fantastic reading experience. I really enjoyed her writing style.

Spring Comic Con ’23 – Meeting Joseph Quinn πŸ¦‡

Hi Guys πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

So, something super fun happened last weekend! March 4th.

Me and my Husband went to our very first comic con. Now, don’t get me wrong, it was at times as stressful as I thought it would be… but also, not as stressful as I thought at the same time…

Let me explain – so I don’t think the where’s and when’s of your photo experiences were massively well explained. I was never explicitly told a time but thankfully someone I know worked it out for me and we arrived with plenty of time, without prior con knowledge I have no idea how you’d ever work it out… but,

Once we were there the staff were super helpful and it was relatively easy to find/ask where you needed to be and when for any experiences and photos you may have booked, so that made it alot less stressful! Everyone else who was also visiting were helpful too which was lovely.

So, anyway – our first comic con was really fun and it was exactly how I imagined it to be. There were so many people in so many costumes, epic costumes. Seriously impressive stuff. It was just a vast room filled with people geeking out, having fun and being unapologetically themselves and maybe slightly irrationally excited about celebrities 🀣 (my self included) I walked past Sylvester McCoy for christ sake!!

And best of all… I MET JOSEPH QUINN.

It was actually surprisingly nervewracking just before the photo slot but it all went well, mostly… I had to have my photo done twice as the camera flash left a glare on the photo because of my glasses… so I had to go again… I had to stand and have everyone look at me as I had a photo taken, again… which I hate… but, it meant I got to say ‘hi’ and put my arm around Joseph Quinn twice so… πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€£ I’d take that as a win tbh

Plus – I thought it was really nice that they let me go again and made sure everyone got a nice photo.

I mean, I literally said ‘hi’ x2 and ‘bye’ and ‘thanks’ to him but in those 10 seconds he seemed very lovely (as I had heard he would be) his very enthusiastic ‘HI’ and smile as you walked over was very sweet. I kind of wish I had plucked up the courage to say a bit more to him but you don’t really have much time anyway… I would probably buy a autograph next time if he goes to any nearby cons again.


The two things that struck me the most were how totally normal he looks (and I mean like in a non celebrity way, he looked great but I think it’s very easy to forget that celebs are just people and they don’t like float around on clouds, with gold sparkles around them or whatever ) and how friggin tall he is in real life- jesus.


I enjoyed having a walk around and looking at the stalls and costumes. A highlight being when I rounded a corner and saw Ghostface casually browsing a t shirt stand 🀣🀣

I got me and my sister a cool Stranger Things Poster each and then we headed over to the mainstage and queued for Joseph’s talk. It was the final event of the day and it was so packed, I’m glad we started queueing when we did.

It was so surreal seeing the set up that I have watched so many times on tik tok of his previous con ‘talks’ but it was really cool to listen to one and see him chatting in real life. To be honest, if you’ve seen one you’ve probably seen most as he gets asked alot of the same questions… but there were some really funny moments that made it worth it… and some adorable moments from a few little kids too.


All in all I really enjoyed my first comic con experience and I would definitely go to one again and be more confident and less panicked now that I know how it all works.

Have you ever been to a comic con?

Who have you met?

A weekend in Wales πŸ΄σ §σ ’󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Hi guys!

So this weekend saw our first trip of 2023 – and we visited Wales 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿


Friday 24th February 2023

πŸ“Merthyr Tydfil 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

We stayed in a lovely AirBnb…

We drove up on Friday night in order to give ourselves maximum time on Wales. A quick stop at a services on the way and we made it in time for bed, ready to start the adventure the next day.

Saturday 25th February 2023

πŸ“Barry Island 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

I was super excited about this day!!! We got to visit somewhere that I have wanted to visit but never thought I would… Barry Island.

Now this may seem like a strange choice but if you’ve watched the TV show ‘Gavin and Stacey’ then you’ll get it.

I was literally having my Gavin and Stacey moment and it was awesome. Seeing the seafront where so many iconic scenes took place, Nessa’s slots, Marcos cafe, Gwen & Stacey’s house, Bryns house and Doris house… it was friggin’ epic!!!

Honestly one ot the funnest days ever. So amazing.

We spent most of the day enjoying the seaside sights and then we headed home via a shop to make dinner at the air bnb.

We played games and of course watched some Gavin and Stacey to round off the day.


Sunday 27th February 2023

πŸ“Cardiff 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

As the capital and as it was on the way home we decided to spend our last day exploring the city.

We started off by getting some yummy lunch!

After that me and my sister had a look around the Primark (Standard!) Haha

We then looked around the Castle. We didn’t pay to go inside but you can walk right through the middle and see it all from the outside which was really cool.

Our second stop was the National Museum of Wales.

This was really cool, in particular the animal section and dinosaurs. My Nephews really enjoyed it too.

The architecture of the building and the town hall next door was amazing too.

We enjoyed the extra ‘100 year’s of the BBC’ exhibition that was happening at the time too. It was really interesting to see the evolution of television over the last century.

There were some really cool parts to the exhibit like props from Cardiff filmed BBC shows such as Dr Who. There was also a cool set up of a 1970’s lounge complete with retro furniture and TV set… and finally there were some awesome retro children’s toys that were on programmes over have all been on the BBC – very nostalgic.


We headed off once we had, had a refreshment at the cafe (I tried a Welsh Cake – the regular ones were delicious but a scone is better!!)

& of course once we had been to the gift shop…

They were very happy with their Wooly Mammoth and Pteradactyl!

The journey home was pretty straightforward and it didn’t seem quite as long as in the way! We made another, quicker stop at a service station together on our way home and finally got back around 10/10.30 which wasn’t too bad.

We had such a great weekend and we managed to cram lots in, in order to make the most of our time there. I’m looking forward to more trips throughout the year.


Have you been to Wales before? What was your favourite sight?

World Book Day 2023 πŸ“š

Hi guys! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

Today is World Book Day. I mean everyday is Book Day for me haha.

As I work in a Primary School Setting I do love this Day simply for sharing stories and excitement around books.

Plus, it’s good fun to make a costume and dress up. My favourite part is reading to the children throughout the day though.


What could you do this World Book Day?

Get crafty and make a bookmark for you and or the kids.

Just enjoy a bit of quiet reading time with a new book or a favourite of yours…

Read to the kids! This is my favourite part of world book day at work β€οΈπŸ“š

Try something new? A new type of book, a new genre. I have recently been enjoying the Heartstopper Graphic Novels which is not a book format that I usually read.

Read your favourite book β™‘

Unfortunately I won’t have time today but, going to a local bookshop and treating yourself to a new book would also be an awesome way to spend it too. Especially if the kids have their book token too!


This year I have reused my Stick Man costume as I put alot of effort into making this last year so I thought I would get one more year out of it!


Whatever you do, I hope you have been able to enjoy a book and share that joy with somebody…theres nothing better β™‘

What did you do for World Book Day?

What costume did you wear?

A book review: The Christmas Murder Game πŸ“š

Hi guys πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

So, we have had book club meeting number one of 2023.

(A little later than planned as the madness of Christmas/January meant we all, for the most part needed more time to finish up)

This book was chosen as our December/January read – hence the Christmas theme. Although this was far from my usual cheery, festive fiction jaunt.

The Christmas Murder Game is by Alexandra Benedict.


Here is a brief overview of the plot:


Twelve clues.
Twelve keys.
Twelve days of Christmas.
But who will survive until Twelfth Night?

Lily Armitage never intended to return to Endgame House – the grand family home where her mother died twenty-one Christmases ago. Until she receives a letter from her aunt, asking her to return to take part in an annual tradition: the Christmas Game. The challenge? Solve twelve clues, to find twelve keys. The prize? The deeds to the manor house.


Some opinions on the book:

  • A different, interesting twist to a Christmas book.
  • Easy to read.
  • An interesting plot which made for a really good story.
  • Short chapters.
  • Something different to what I have read before.
  • It would make a really good film.
  • Some points are a little unbelievable.
  • The bonus riddles are so hard to find!!

Out of 5 stats I would give this a β˜†β˜†1/2.

Simply, for a Thriller it wasn’t that thrilling. It was an easy read for sure and it was a good story… we were all in agreement that actually it would make a really good film, but I wasn’t personally gripped by it even though it is very easy to read.


Have you read this book? What did you think of it?

Until Next Time,

It’s a new year… βœ¨οΈ

Hi guys πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

It’s 2023 and we are now one month in! Its absolute madness really.

All I can keep thinking is, it’s 3 years since 2020!!

Now this isn’t a list of my new years resolutions because in all honesty – making goals or resolutions puts alot of pressure onto things that might otherwise be quite enjoyable.

And then I saw this photo on Facebook…

I just think these are brilliant, monthly selfcare, positive, healthy ‘goals’ that keep you ticking over each month – It’s giving thriving not just surviving and I’m here for it.

So, now all I need to do is print this out and pop it by my bed in order to remind me… because let’s be honest, I never re read last years posts and forgot some of what I pledged (which is kind of annoying as some were great ideas, if only I’d been reminded of my good intentions!!)

And as it says at the top of this list ‘try’ to do these things, so… no pressure…


So, How did January go… ✌🏼

  • Plan a lunch with friends

I went for dinner instead of lunch as I am at work most days. I went round my friends flat for a lovely dinner in the middle of January.

  • Spend a day outdoors

Me and the hubby reinstated our walks this month so we have been doing a few, despite the cold snap. I feel like we have made a good start with this one, prehaps not a whole day yet but getting back to the walks has been great.

  • 24 Hours without Social Media

Not going to lie, I totally failed at this one 😬 I might as well be honest.

I’ll try again next month.

  • Have a Movie Night

I took this one a little more literally as I have had several ‘movie nights’ this month. Being an unlimited card holder I love going to the cinema as much as possible and I have just managed to fit in loads of trips this month, the best kinds movie nights. I have been with both my sister and husband a few times as we all have unlimited cards. I normally treat myself to a Starbucks and I took us along treats in the form of leftover Christmas choc. Perfect.

  • Have a day for yourself

I decided to use my afternoon off for my ‘me time’. I spent a couple of hours at my favourite local coffee shop reading our current Book Club book… followed by a trip to the cinema to watch ‘Empire Of Light’.

I really enjoyed the film and Olivia Coleman was brilliant as usual.

  • Write down your favourite memory of the month

So, here’s me writing that down… my favourite memory from January has been…

Going to the Zoo with my husband β˜ΊοΈπŸ’—

What’s first on my tbr list for 2023 πŸ“š

Hi guys πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

I hope 2022 was a fun, book filled year for you all!

I am looking forward to starting 2023’s reading adventure – my extensive TBR shelf needs to make space for some new books which I’m sure I will pick up in the coming year (plus, my new Christmas additions)

Let’s take a look at the ones that I would like to get started on first in 2023.

Lots of these I have been waiting to read for a long time or were due to read before I started on my Christmas novels.

[ I will include a short Synopsis of each book from Amazon. ]


The Maid by Nita Prose

It begins like any other day for Molly Gray, silently dusting her way through the luxury rooms at the Regency Grand Hotel. But when she enters suite 401 and discovers an infamous guest dead in his bed, a very messy mystery begins to unfold. And Molly’s at the heart of it – because if anyone can uncover the secrets beneath the surface, the fingerprints amongst the filth – it’s the maid . . .

The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell

Midsummer 2017: teenage mum Tallulah heads out on a date, leaving her baby son at home with her mother, Kim.

At 11 p.m. she sends her mum a text message. At 4.30 a.m. Kim awakens to discover that Tallulah has not come home.

Friends tell her that Tallulah was last seen heading to a pool party at a house in the woods nearby called Dark Place.

Tallulah never returns.

2018: walking in the woods behind the boarding school where her boyfriend has just started as a head teacher, Sophie sees a sign nailed to a fence.

A sign that says: DIG HERE . . .

The Murder List by Jackie Kabler

‘When Mary receives a blank diary as a present, she thinks nothing of it. Until she opens the diary, and sees it’s not blank after all…

1st January MURDER LISA, OXFORD
1st February MURDER JANE, BIRMINGHAM
1st March MURDER DAVID, CARDIFF
1st April MURDER MARY, CHELTENHAM

Is this a sick joke? But…it’s the end of January now. And a woman called Lisa was murdered in Oxford on 1st January. Could there really be a killer out there, planning to commit a new murder each month? And is the Mary due to be killed on 1st April her?’

You and me on vacation by Emily Henry

’12 YEARS AGO: Poppy and Alex meet. They hate each other, and are pretty confident they’ll never speak again. 11 YEARS AGO: They’re forced to share a ride home from college and by the end of it a friendship is formed. And a pact: every year, one vacation together. 10 YEARS AGO: Alex discovers his fear of flying on the way to Vancouver.
Poppy holds his hand the whole way. 7 YEARS AGO: They get far too drunk and narrowly avoid getting matching tattoos in New Orleans. 2 YEARS AGO: It all goes wrong. THIS YEAR: Poppy asks Alex to join her on one last trip. A trip that will determine the rest of their lives.’

The Curfew by T.M Logan

The curfew
Andy and Laura are good parents. They tell their son Connor that he can go out with friends to celebrate completing his exams, but he must be home by midnight.
The lie
When Connor misses his curfew, it sets off a series of events that will change the lives of five families forever.
The truth?
Because five teenagers went into the woods that night, but only four came out. And telling the truth might mean losing everything…
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

The Land of Stories: Worlds Collide by Chris Colfer

In the highly anticipated finale, Conner and Alex must brave the impossible. All of the Land of Stories fairy tale characters – heroes and villains – are no longer confined within their world!
With mayhem brewing in the Big Apple, Conner and Alex will have to win their biggest battle yet. Can the twins restore order between the human and fairy-tale world?’

The Castaways by Lucy Clarke

‘You wake on a beautiful, remote island.
Sparkling blue seas, golden sunsets, barely a footprint in the sand.
Yet this is no ordinary escape.
Next to the wreck of a plane, a stranger paces. Another sharpens a knife, scoring a list of the dead onto a palm tree. Others watch from the shadows of a campfire – all with untold stories, and closely-guarded secrets…’

The Perfect Lie by Jo Spain

‘Five years ago, Erin Kennedy moved to New York following a family tragedy. She now lives happily with her detective husband in the scenic seaside town of Newport, Long Island. When Erin answers the door to Danny’s police colleagues one morning, it’s the start of an ordinary day. But behind her, Danny walks to the window of their fourth-floor apartment and jumps to his death.
Eighteen months later, Erin is in court, charged with her husband’s murder. Over that year and a half, Erin has learned things about Danny she could never have imagined. She thought he was perfect. She thought their life was perfect.
But it was all built on the perfect lie.’


Beyond the wand by Tom Felton

‘From Borrower to wizard, Tom Felton’s childhood was anything but ordinary. His early rise to fame saw him catapulted into the limelight aged just twelve when he landed the iconic role of Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films. Speaking with candour and his own trademark humour, Tom shares his experience of growing up on screen and as part of the wizarding world for the very first time. He tells all about his big break, what filming was really like and the lasting friendships he made during ten years with the franchise, as well as the highs and lows of fame and the reality of navigating adult life after filming finished.Prepare to meet a real-life wizard.’

The Reading List by Sara Nisha Adams

‘A faded list.
Nine favourite stories.
For two strangers, friendship is only a page away . . . When Mukesh Patel pops to the local library, forgoing his routine of grocery shopping and David Attenborough documentaries, he has no idea his life’s about to change. He meets Aleisha, a reluctant librarian and the keeper of a curious reading list – just a scrappy piece of paper with the names of 9 stories. It doesn’t seem anything special. Yet something tells her to keep it close . . . Story by story, Mukesh and Aleisha work their way through the list – their worries slipping away with every encounter, with every world discovered in their unlikely book club of two. A fresh chance at life, at friendship, wasn’t on the cards for these lonely souls – but every story starts somewhere . . .’

A lovely weekend πŸŒ€

Hi guys πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

What a lovely weekend!

Here’s a little diary of what we got up to.

Saturday

We started off the weekend with a lazy start (which was much needed) followed by a lovely cooked breakfast and drinks at a local cafe.

After that we went home and we caught up with the final part of the Thriller we have been watching ‘Riptide’. We really enjoyed that. Whilst we watched this I started my Harry Potter Christmas puzzle.

I then read my book for a bit before playing ‘The Sims’ with my sister.

In the evening I made me and my husband a lovely pie, mash, veg and gravy dinner and we ate it whilst we watched ‘The Masked Singer.’

Sunday

I started off the day enjoying a green tea with mint as I read some more of my book.

We then got up and ready and made our way out for our trip to the zoo.

Before we go to the Zoo we always start off by going to the Sainsbury’s cafe that is en route. Delicious.

We then headed to the zoo.

It was a little wet at times but it held offmost of the time that we were there.

They have really improved the zoo in recent years with regard to the facilities and enclosures – which is great to see.

We usually go to the zoo a few times each year and it was great to discover bits that we hadn’t seen before, had been redeveloped or we just hadn’t visited on our last few trips. We had a lovely time and saw some lovely animals.

We headed home after a few hours and relaxed at home. I wrote a few blog posts, did some social media and then played ‘The Sims’ with my sister again

All in all a calm, restful and fun weekend spent with some of my favourite people.


How did you spend your weekend?

I hope you enjoyed yourself!


Until Next Time,
