My book reading visits

Deciding to help someone is a big thing and obviously if it's long term you have to promise to stick to it. A few months ago I started visiting a care home and reading a few pages of Sherlock Holmes stories to a elderly man with Alzheimers.

Never judge a book by its cover

I love social media but I've also seen the bad sides of it, there is so much abuse that is used and in some cases allowed to continue. I've seen over the years such hurtful comments made to people and all through "faceless" technology. Some people seem to have nothing better to do than to inflict their views onto others.


Yes it's nearly November and this means it's very nearly time again for NaNoWriMo. Confused? Well I'll explain NaNoWriMo is the abbrevation for National Novel Writing Month.

Sarah Loves... To Laugh

I love nothing more than having a good laugh, whether it be with friends, on twitter, watching TV. I love nothing more than having a good chuckle.

The Perfect Boyfriend

Ok so he's not actually "real" but he's never going to give you any trouble is he? He's a great listener, won't take the remote control and he's cuddly.

Sunday morning lie ins...

As Spurs boy has been injured and unable to play football in recent weeks I have enjoyed having my Sunday morning lie ins again. I shouldn't have been so frivolous with them, Spurs boy is back playing this Sunday! But... but...

Sarah's writings

You may have heard me mention a few times on here that I love notebooks, currently at the moment I'm using four. FOUR?

Yes Four.

Sarah Loves... Meditation

Yes you have read it right and I admit if I'd have known a year ago that my new daily routine would have been meditation I would have firmly told you to shut up and stop being so silly. But now I'm saying I love it. Oh how a year has changed me.

The Ultimate Coat

I guess it does look like something out of the film "The Matrix" and I'm not one for buying much quirky stuff. My coats in the past have been more practical and well really the same style. I've liked the military style and of course over here in the UK you have to have the trusty coat with a hood.

Bruises and Burns

Picture via Google images

So Bestie signed us both us for a 6 week pole dancing class and sure it was fun, but I've never ached so much from doing any other exercise. EVER! I should add I've only had one class so far.

The Swap Party

I got invited to my first swap party a couple of months ago and instantly I was hooked. The idea is pretty simple basically a swap party is where you swap clothes, jewellery, accessories etc. It's a great money saver, another way to recycle and a great way to socialise.

Sarah Loves... Yankee Candle

From first moving in with Spurs boy he started noticing these jars kept appearing... everywhere! It started off a bit of a joke as he kept telling me he could afford the heating bills and there was no need to rely on candles!

This weekend on our little shopping venture I probably pushed Spurs boy to the limit, first by going to Lush (He cannot stand the smell and quite openly holds his nose when he goes in there, very embarrassing!) he doesn't mind waiting outside though and of course carrying the bags :-)

Happy Birthday Sir Bobby

The above picture was taken as Sir Bobby helped with the World Cup inspection of Old Trafford earlier this year. I love that he still has the same love for football that he had when he used to be on the play. He went through so much with Manchester United and he is someone who I know I certainly have looked up to growing up and I'm still amazed by.

Happy Birthday Sir Bobby.

73 years young today.

Love Your Way

Love is a funny thing isn't it? Sometimes in life you go through wanting to find love and other times of not realising it's standing right there in front of you.

A Helping Hand

Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. We can try to hide our feelings and not tackle what’s there in front of us. We push past all the fear and doubt and concentrate on what we have.

Sarah Loves... David Lyons

It's not much of a secret that I have a thing for Aussie men. David Lyons is probably my number one, closely followed by Simon Baker I think (although it does change around).

Recycling books

What do you do with your books once you have read them? Sell them on ebay, pass on to a friend, take to a charity shop are a few options. Of course most people put their books onto a bookshelf and leave them there to gather dust, or is that just me?

Firefox Home App for iPhone

My preferred browser is Firefox and has been for some time. The one thing that annoyed me with my iPhone was how unpractical Safari was for me and I had got tired of adding my bookmarks. Then Spurs boy said "Get the Firefox app".
