The day I was a tourist...

I discovered this strange little postcard in a little shop near where I live. There is something really creepy about it, not least because I think the children pictured are brother and sister. I'll be back soon, enjoy!

The day before...

Seasons greetings faithful readers. I know I have been silent for a while and I can only apologise for that. To mark my return I am revealing to you one of my most important secrets yet. My sister is pregnant and I am going to be an aunt. I could not be more happy about this news. I went to the first scan over a month ago and it was the single most amazing experience I have ever had. At that point the baby was only 7cm long but it looked completely fully formed and was waving at us. I hope you all have an amazing Christmas and I will return soon with my blog overhaul and regular secrets, I promise. Love and best wishes to you all.

The day I came back...

I am sorry I have been completely MIA for the last week. I have been really busy with university and work (they've got me doing a 46 hour week!). I actually made a secret in the week but just haven't had the chance to post it yet. This is my favourite secret from this week. Let me know what you've been up to!

The day we went to see Ross Noble...

I am very lucky to have always known what I wanted to be. I can't imagine being anything but a teacher. I hope that my passion and determination will shape me into the type of teacher that has the power to change a child's life. I fully expect to have my life changed by the children I will someday teach. This is my favourite postsecret from the selection this week, go and check them out at

The day I spoke to Anna...

I have had a long day at work but my evening got off to a really lovely start when a friend from Oxford skyped me. As glad as I am with the choices I've made over the last few months I do really miss Oxford and I miss my friends. That feeling fits in with the tone of this secret, is it something you can relate to?

The day I finished...

I have done all my christmas shopping and I only have a week and a half left of university so after next week I will be around much more. This means I can finally commit to the blog re-design I've been promising for months. Here is my latest secret, I hope you like this one - is it one you can relate to?

The day I started to wake up...

I am back. I would go into details about why I've been so silent for the last few weeks but it isn't blogworthy or worthy of me giving any more thought to. So instead let me tell you all the good things that have been happening (here is my top five):

1. I have been awarded a scholarship for my teaching course.
2. I have started the process of becoming a volunteer with the Samaritans.
3. I have my very own signed photo of Katie Price.
4. I start my first school placement in January at Ewell Castle School.
5. I have, after many years of resisting, finally indulged my love for leopard print.

To those of you who only know me via the world of blogging some of those things won't make any sense to you - trust me that they are all very exciting developments. I am sorry to have not kept up with comments, thank you all for your kind words. Care to tell me your good news in five easily digestible points?

The day I said sorry...

I feel awful for posting absolutely nothing this week, I have been so busy that the one secret I did manage to make I never actually had the chance to post. Anyway this is my favourite postsecret this week, go and check them out for yourself! I do this all the time. Pretty much in every secret I make there is a hidden message for someone. I hope that my friends/family will read that specific secret and know that I am trying to tell them how I feel about them. It reminds me of one of my favourite secrets that I made over a year ago (you can see it here). Enjoy!
