You may have noticed that there haven’t been any new posts here for a while, and I apologise for that. Getting married took over so much of my time, as did my book blog. I’ve thought about it a lot and have decided to take a little break from The Postscript to get myself organised… Continue reading Taking a Break
I’m not a very political person and I must admit I do not really do much to mark International Women’s Day – which I know is bad! But I like to spend the day thinking about the women who really inspire me, and I did that today. Cheryl Strayed Like everyone else I read Wild… Continue reading For International Women’s Day 2017 – The Women Who Inspire Me #IWD2017
It seems ironic that there is a print magazine about blogging – but it turns out that Blogosphere magazine is worth the irony. Each issue costs £6, not cheap, but they are like little books that you can delve into again and again, and are in no way short on valuable content. Issue 11 features… Continue reading Blogosphere magazine, issue 11
One of the best things about 2017 is that I am getting married in June. We have been engaged since July and it seemed like the wedding was quite far away… but now that we are in 2017 it seems very soon – only five months! We have almost everything booked and organised, but the… Continue reading The Dress
Hello! It has been just ages since I posted here, or on my book blog, and I am sorry for that. My fiancé and I bought a house in October, and in the last month we have been going a bit mad getting it done up and ready to live in… and then there was… Continue reading Hello 2017!
I used to keep diaries as a child – recording my homework and visits with friends, trips to the cinema and regular family get-togethers. When my mother moved house in 2015, two years after I had moved out, she asked if I wanted the box she had of my diaries and notebooks from those years.… Continue reading The Question of Keeping a Diary
We’ve owned our house for a few weeks now, and the reality of it is starting to sink in. Our mothers have seen and approved it, so it’s official. Today we measured most of the house for things like rugs, curtains, and beds. The whole house has wooden floorboards and no fitted carpets, so we’re… Continue reading The Importance of Home
As a ‘millennial’ I know that owning a house at my age (28) is a rare and lucky thing. I have a decent job and perpetually no money. My fiancé is the same, though perhaps with a little money (he was clever enough not to choose a career in publishing!). We know a few couples… Continue reading Owning a House: WTAF?
Today is 13th July 2016, and five years ago I graduated from university. I remembered because Facebook told me, showing me a picture of me on the day itself, beaming in my robe and mortar board. Five years ago I was 23, way too blonde, and working as an intern. I had only just started to… Continue reading Five Years
Last Wednesday was my one year anniversary at my job. I decided not to make a ‘thing’ out of it at work, partly because I just didn’t want a fuss and partly because the day brought up mixed feelings and emotions. On the one hand I was proud of myself for completing a year of… Continue reading Work anniversaries: something to celebrate?
