Here Is The News #17

Here is the News

Blogland Brilliance

The lovely Jenny is organising a Christmas Card Swap - you've got til 10th November to sign up.

Juliet baked a magnificently decorated Spiderweb Chocolate Cake.

SJ has a little (or not so little) announcement - excellent news for her but sad news for any of us Bristol and South West bloggers.

Candy wrote an excellent post about being three dimensional - we don't need to be pigeonholed and having lots of bits to you can only a good thing.

Lily visited Bryon Burger in Bristol - be warned, looking at her pictures will leave you hungry!

I love the way Danielle's decorated her house for Halloween!

Lisa's pictures from the Open House London weekend are stunning - I'd love to visit the Lloyd's of London building and Wilton's Music Hall now.

And Anna's all about the boobs promoting the Coppafeel campaign. I agree, we should all be checking our own more regularly!

Blogs I've followed this week...

The Fox and Furrow

Live It. Love It. Make It.

This week's Carnivals...

It's the big one this weekend - Bridgwater in Somerset - reputed to be the world's biggest illuminated Carnival procession and even as I'm typing this there's hundreds of exhausted club members across the South West working feverishly throughout the night to finish their floats. It all kicks off at 7pm on Saturday night.

On Monday evening the whole caboodle moves to the seaside town of Burnham on Sea where all the floats and walking entries do it all over again (before then moving on to another 5 or 6 towns).

Interesting Info

Go on, you know you want to - hop on over to the Woodland Trust and vote for England's Tree of the Year where you can read all about the 10 trees on the shortlist (and yep, that's actual trees, not tree species or woodlands but individual trees).

The BBC asked 'Can you cheat your way to fitness?' and it would seem that yup, we might well be able to, especially if you like gardening.

Britain is to get it's very own National Videogame Arcade showcasing the history of gaming. It's due to open in Nottingham next March.

Want to date a librarian? Read these three common misconceptions and take note on what and what not to do.

These historic pictures of Halloween costumes? No, just no.

This week I've watched...

The first two series of Spaced and I've just started watching Green Wing - both on 4oD

What's new with you?


  1. Thank you so much for the follow Louise!

    I've also signed up to the Christmas Card Swap - who knows we may get each other!

    Also Spaced is so so good - you pick up on references in the other Simon Pegg/Nick Frost films all the time after watching it!


  2. The national videogaming arcade sounds amazing! I better get on with the gardening if that BBC news thing about fitness is true!

  3. Those costumes are so creepy!

    I love Spaced and Green Wing. I quite want to marry Mac xxx
