Here Is The News #32

Here is the News

Blogland Brilliance (lots of it this week!)

Both Jane and Amy wrote about their love for libraries to celebrate National Libraries Day last Saturday.

If you'd like a quick and easy Valentine's craft, Freya May has put together a DIY banner tutorial.

Danielle's first ever competition ended last week with some excellent entries and one very worthy winner - it's definitely worth checking out how inventive the pictures were!

This post by Siobhan about rootlessness, accents and your home is really interesting - where do you feel as if you're from?

For an early taste of summer (and even an ice cream!) pop over to Emma's blog so see St Ives in glorious sunshine.

Sarah's put together an excellent list of tips and advice for anyone moving home, in fact all the ideas I would've suggested are already there!

This list of modern remakes for musicals from The High Tea Cast is excellent - I particularly like Oliver, Rent and Moulin Rouge.

If you want even more fab links, check out Elise's post rounding up the best of blogland in January.

How crafty is Kezzie? She put together a brilliant package of handmade goodies for her swap partner, Janet.

And Char is holding a cheap and cheerful #spreadtheloveswap - sign up by Saturday 14th to send and receive a little package filled with love.

Interesting Info

The BBC looked at the changing face of passport photos over the last 100 years.

Ever wondered how video and DVD rental stores keep going? (our local one seems to survive on penny sweets and courier collections)

This incredibly sweet teen with Down's Syndrome has become an internet sensation after recording a cover of the John Legend song, 'All of Me'.

Things to make you hungry...

Just look at Jo's chocolate chip banana bread!

Hannah made some cute cola cupcakes.

And Debs made chicken and potato soup with bacon for a date night challenge!

    Aww, thank you for the mention, that's really kind!

  4. Our video store sells sweets and alcohol.
