Magical Readathon 2019 - O.W.Ls Book List (TBR)

31 Mar 2019

The Magical Readathon has a number of events throughout the year, and involve a reading challenge. I've been in a bad place with reading this year, and just can't seem to concentrate, so I thought that I would take up the challenge and sit my OWL examinations. If you are not aware of what the OWLs are, they are the examinations which take place in the fifth year at Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. and all students must complete the exams. These are followed by the NEWTs in the seventh year, and are much harder. Following the first Magical Readathon of 2019, which takes place for the duration of April, I will then hopefully pass and be able to sit my NEWT exams later in the year.


Purchasing Your First Home - Location, Location, Location*

*COLLABORATIVE POST

When it comes to purchasing your own home, research is really important. Whether it is house prices, or location, it is important to scope out the current price market in the area that you wish to move to. I currently live in Leicestershire, and we are home owners. We were able to purchase our first home with the Help to Buy Scheme, and have lived here for 5 years now. When finding our home, there was so much information to look at, and it was hard to know what we needed to find out, and what we needed to save money for. Today I thought I would talk to you about the things that you might want to look into when it comes to purchasing your very own home.

THE TRIUMPH FACTORY VISITOR EXPERIENCE

7 Oct 2018

Motorbikes are a huge part of our lives. My husband is a design engineer at Triumph Motorcycles, and when he isn't designing bikes, he enjoys following the MotoGP. Elise has also become a fan of motorbikes, and they often watch the races together, or head to Mallory Park, which is just down the road from us, to take in some of the live motorbike action. It's a great hobby for them to share together, and so when the factory where my husband works opened up a visitor centre, we knew that we would become regular visitors. Since it opened last year, we have probably been to visit at least once a month...even if it is just to visit the cafe for a delicious slice of cake, and for Elise to have a sit on a motorbike or two!
