Book Nooks

So i have been delayed writing my Monday post on books. Naughty me i know! Many things have been happening over the last week including moving to a new flat, so all the rigmarole of packing, cleaning, unpacking more cleaning etc….. have taken up the time i would normally spend planning and writing posts in advance. However, i wanted to share something bookish with you today but am keeping t short and sweet.

Introducing the Book Nook. I really want a house in which i can sit on a window seat in the sunshine with a great book and a brew. Sigh. Until that time i am going to just have to fantasise on Pinterest what my perfect book nook could be like.

Why Journal?

I have the 30 second memory of a fish.

Even after an amazing day doing something new and exciting i’ll have forgotten the next day the name of each place we went to and possibly exactly what we did there. Now add that to a travel trip when each day you do something new and different and i’m screwed. Continue reading “Why Journal?”


Teaching Abroad

Having taught in Australia for two years i picked up many new ideas to use in my classroom when i have one again. Pinterest has been the place i keep a track of all these.

This is one of the boards i have pinned some ideas to, My favourite idea and here is my pinterest profile.


A Wandering woman

I left the uk on a one way ticket two and a half years ago, single, excited and with grand ideas about what my life would be like.

Here I am two and a half years later with a partner in travelling crime, in a different country/city to where I though I would end up and not doing the job I thought I would be. Oh how life likes to throw us a curve ball every now and then. There are still lots of snippets and advice I feel I can share.

This is going to be a blog about books i have read, travelling advice, hints and tips i have learnt and things I have found teaching in at least two different countries. Probably with some ramblings mixed in.
