Get ready to be ravenous after this one! It’s been a while since I’ve done a food review and so I hope this hits you by lunchtime. I can’t wait to tell you about our lunch at 805 Restaurants in Reading, Berkshire!
That is me blowing my diet again but, it was the Trowbridge Weavers Market and it was absolutely worth it! Yesterday marked the first of a series of monthly artisan markets aptly named after the town’s history and weaving heritage

It’s the end of the second week of the year and probably too late to be saying Happy New Year, but I only just turned in my coursework and so I’ll say it anyway: Happy New Year! This post is a follow-up to my previous post: If We Were Having Coffee: 2018 Review. I’ll be listing my plans for this blog, my photography business, school and personal life. Let’s get to it, shall we?
