Here Is The News #20

Here is the News

Blogland Brilliance

Sophie is celebrating her one year blogging anniversary and also promoting an incredibly worthwhile fundraising event at the Eden Project in Cornwall on Saturday evening.

Charlie has some excellent news to share and her other half came up with a wonderful way of doing it!

Lily's very helpfully put together a compilation of crafty tutorials for easy Christmas DIY gifts.

Katie's been looking very glam as a bridesmaid (and also managed to make her own custard!)

Jane launched her '33 before 33' list - which reminds me I really need to make a start on mine before next month!

Beccy cooked the perfect autumnal cake - Slow Cooked Apple Crumb Cake.

Elise visited the awesome Summerlee Industrial Museum in Lanarkshire - we went there back in 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed it.

And lastly, Katie's put together a fabulous Christmas gift guide - if someone would like to buy me number 3 on her list, that would be excellent, thank you.

Exciting Events

I should've included this last week but last Wednesday was Jane's birthday - happy birthday Jane, hope you had a fabulous day and are still having a fabulous birthday recovery week!

Not an event you're all invited to sadly, but I'm very much looking forward to a wedding party we're going to on Saturday. Two of our friends who are part of the family who run Carters Steam Fair are getting married and their party is being held in a circus big top complete with fairground rides. Even better, my father in law has to drive the bride to Windsor registry office in a 1948 Scammell lorry (unfortunately he knows what could go wrong with the engine so he's not looking forward to playing chauffeur at all!)

Interesting Info

Over on 6 Music they're having a series of special shows from 8th to 21st November all celebrating the wonder of libraries. Guy Garvey took listeners on a tour of Manchester's libraries, Craig Charles investigated library music (the stuff used in the background for radio, TV and film), today at 4pm Steve Lamacq talks to the best libraries around the country and on Friday at 4pm he's broadcasting live from the British Library - the first time a radio show has ever been broadcast from there.

What's new with you?


  1. TWO mentions?! I'm honoured :) Your friends' wedding sounds absolutely fantastic! Have I told you yet that I want a circus-themed wedding? I really, really do :) xxx

  2. Aww thanks for including my proposal post - that's so sweet!

    I've also been loving the 6 Music Libraries series. I used to work at a library, but haven't been to one in ages - the radio series has been making me want to visit my local one asap!

  3. Oooh, thanks for the mention, and the birthday wishes :)
