    A to Z Blogging Challenge: S is for Selfie With A Giraffe

    Welcome back to my A to Z Blogging Challenge posts. I’ve fallen a little behind, but instead of trying to do the posts that I’ve missed, I’m writing the post that I was meant to write today anyway, which is S, and I’ll catch up later when I have time. So, today is S for Selfie With A Giraffe, which is one of the items close to the top of my wish list. If you’d like to read the rest of my posts, you can catch up by clicking on my index post, which is right here. I’ve always been a short person. I’m 4ft 10 (and a half) and…

    A to Z of Blogging Challenge: R is for Raikkonen

    This is another backdated post because I fell a little bit behind over the Easter holiday weekend. What can I say? It’s just more fun to sunbathe and eat chocolate than it is to work! However, I’m back to working hard on this blog and others and back to writing my A to Z Blogging Challenge posts. Today is R for Raikkonen and if you’re at all interested in motor sport, you’ll know that name. It’s about Kimi Raikkonen, my current favourite driver. I have a kind of complicated admiration for Kimi Raikkonen. I’ve been a fan of his since he joined Formula 1 and imagine how delighted I was…

    The A to Z Blogging Challenge: L is for Leaving A Shoe At The Ball

    Today I want to write about something a little bit different. It’s not an item that is currently on my wish list or something that I daydream about at the present time. Today L is going to stand for Leaving A Shoe At The Ball. If you’re at all familiar with western fairy tales, you’ll know the story of Cinderella. Western readers are reading this and thinking, “Who doesn’t know the story of Cinderella?” But lets not forget that the internet is global and so is my blog. There are a large number of readers from other cultures who have never heard of Charles Perrault or read his fairy tales…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge: J is for Jaffa Cakes

    I have a limited amount of time today, so this post might be a lot shorter than my other A to Z Blogging Challenge Posts. Today is J and I struggled to think of something I wanted to write for J. In the end, I came up with Jaffa Cakes. I love jaffa cakes but I haven’t had one for probably about thirteen or fourteen years. Because allergies. I have so many. I’ve spent that time looking for a recipe so I can make them at home and haven’t found one yet. I’ve tried a few, but they haven’t been quite right. For those who have never had the pleasure…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge: G is for Gibraltar

    I made it to week 2. Woohoo! And by the time you read this, I’ll be back from England and starting work on my travel blog and my last assignment for the academic year. Last year, I don’t think I got this far, so I’m really pleased with myself. Not only that, these posts are still scheduled and I didn’t fall behind at all yet and have to catch up. I’m writing this in March. I feel like I have already won this challenge. So, today I’m covering the letter G and what it represents on my wish list. G stands for Gibraltar, one of my favourite places in the…
