Currently Knitting… Marie Curie Quest Socks
Sherlock Knits is undertaking an epic quest to knit a pair of socks for every patient in the 9 hospices that she works in. A total of 229 pairs! Over the last two months, I have been knitting a few pairs for this worthwhile quest. Sherlock Knits is still a few pairs short to complete the challenge, check out her Instagram for more details.

Currently Reading… Geekerella by Ashley Poston
I am extremely behind in my Goodreads Challenge for 2017, I think yet again I am going to fail. However, as I got some amazon vouchers for my birthday. I bought a lot of the books from my to read list, including Geekerella and am attempting to catch up before the end of the year.

Currently Loving… Avengers: Infinity War Trailer
I have spent the last few days watching and re-watching the new Avengers trailer. I did think about writing a reaction post, but to be honest it probably would just say. “Spidey-senses, Bearded Cap. The Battle of Wakanda, more Bearded Cap. Mantis’s cute little wave!”

Currently Watching… Netflix has really spoilt me this month. Due to my birthday at the end of October, I didn’t get, around to watching Stranger Things until the start of the month. then in the middle of the month, we watched The Punisher. On top of that were weekly episodes of The Good Place, Once Upon a Time, and Star Trek: Discovery.

Currently Playing… Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
I tried to convince myself, that I wasn’t going to play Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, as I didn’t have much free time. However, several hours of after the game was released and after seeing all the cute screenshots on Instagram. I downloaded the game and have been addicted ever since.

Currently Knitting… 
I have finally finished knitting the Hitofude Cardigan for my mum. It was two months after my self-imposed deadline and I still have to sew up a few ends. But I am hoping to take some photos later this week of the finished garment.

Currently Reading… The City’s Son by Tom Pollock
I adore reading books set in London especially Urban Fantasy, one of my favourite book series is the PC Grant Mysteries. Following a recommendation based on these books, I discovered The Skyscraper Throne trilogy, the first one of which is The City’s Son.

Currently Watching… Game of Thrones
July has been all about Game of Thrones. I re-watched season six at the start of the month in preparation for season seven. I have been loving the new season so far, it is amazing how this programme keeps getting better and better, and I have no idea how it is going to end.

Currently Loving… Adventure
On July over most weekends, we have visited family. First in Norfolk and the in Ireland. Whilst we didn’t get to do a lot of sightseeing on either vacation. But on both trips, we did have dinner at amazing places with stunning views! Upon returning from Ireland I am already planning my next longer adventure. I’d love to visit some of the locations from Game of Thrones and of course, Skellig Michael (the island at the end of The Force Awakens)

Currently Feeling…  Social
Like me on Facebook.
I am trying to be more active on social media. I hate to say I am cultivating a brand, as this blog is just my little corner of the Internet where a share my rants, not a product. However, I have set up a Facebook page to interact with my readers more, don’t forget to like me!

Currently Knitting… Hitofude Cardigan
I added the Hitofude Cardigan to my years ago. The pattern has an non-conventional construction which appealed, but the design isn’t really my style. It is my mum’s style! I had planned on knitting the cardigan for her birthday in May. But knitting as slowly as I do, the cardigan is still not completed.

Currently Watching… Twin Peaks
As a teenager, I adored Twin Peaks, My obsession included  watching each episode several times, reading the tie-in books and listening to the soundtrack and “tapes.” I think my love of coffee might have started because of Twin Peaks. As the show returned at the end of May, I have re-watching seasons one and two in preparation for The Return.

Currently Reading… American Gods by Neil Gaiman
As well as Twin Peaks in May, I have been watching the adapation of American Gods. This also seemed like a good time to re-read the book. I’m loving the TV programme, espeically the “Coming to America” segments.

Currently Loving… Lego Trading Cards
Sainsbury’s (a British supermarket) are giving away Lego Trading Card with your shopping. You get 4 cards for every £10 you spend instore. As I child I remember collecting stickers and swapping them with friends, nowadays, it seems social media is your ideal tool to swap cards. “Got, Got, Need!”

Currently… March edition

currently march
March was very much a month of two halves. I started the month with by celebrating my 10 year wedding anniversary, in the miserable rainy weather. By the end of the month, I was stressing out about my course and finances. On the plus side we have had a few amazing days of sunshine here in London.

Currently Reading… Batman: Hush by Jeph Loeb & Jim Lee

My reading this year seems to have an old school Bat-family theme. Which involves me re-reading a lot of my favourite trade paperbacks from pre-New 52. This month, I re-read Batman: Hush. This is definitely one of the storylines that cemented my love of Batman.

Currently Watching… Iron Fist

Despite all the controversy surrounding Iron Fist, I decided I would watch the show. I have loved all the previous Netflix/Marvel programmes, and whilst I could find fault in them, I was expecting something impressive with Iron Fist. The show wasn’t as bad as publicised, yes it was a little slow, it could have been 8 episodes instead of 13. I didn’t like or understand some of the characters, but did I loved Colleen Wing and Davos (Steel Serpent).

Currently Playing… Fun! Hospital
One of my all time favourite PC games was Theme Hospital (and it’s sister game Theme Park). I have found several time management games centred around a roller-coaster in the app store. Until now I hadn’t found one based around a hospital. Fun Hospital is very similar to Theme Hospital, you even have to try and cure “invisibility”

Currently Loving… Joss & Batgirl

Yesterday, the news broke that Joss Whedon would be writing and directing a standalone Batgirl movie. I have a lot to say about this and I will save it up for a future post, but for now I will say I am thrilled! I adored Buffy, Angel and Firefly and can’t wait to see his spin on my favourite hero.

Currently… February Edition

With all the cold wet weather in February, it would have been really easy to spend the month hibernating indoors. Instead I have tried to get outdoors more. The Pokémon Go app update helped, and I spend most the weekends in February catching up with friends. Of course, I still have binge watched a few shows on Netflix!

Currently Reading… Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs by Henry Carroll
I am a lot more confident taking photos, than I was this time last year. However, I am still not 100% happy with my knowledge. I have signed up for a more advanced photography course (and a Photoshop module for a quick refresher course). As a result I picked up a few books in extend my knowledge including Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs.

Currently Drinking… Coconut Hot Chocolate


I am a coffee addict, but in the colder months Hot Chocolate is my guilty pleasure (especially with marshmallows). When I saw the new version on Pret’s Instagram feed, I wanted to try it. Made with Coconut milk, it tastes like a Bounty Bar!
Currently Watching… The Vampire Diaries

After reading the Twilight books, like most I became obsessed vampires. I then read a several of the Sookie Stackhouse books, started The Vampire Diaries books. I watched the first seasons of True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. By the time, of the release of the movie adaptation of New Moon, I was bored. When I heard The Vampire Diaries was ending this year, I thought I start watching it again. I binge watched all seven seasons in six weeks! Bonnie and Enzo are my new favourite TV couple #bonenzo.

Currently Loving… Geek Girl Penpals (IGGPPC)


I signed up to IGGPPC last year, and have made so many amazing friends around the world. Over the holiday period I received several lovely parcels all with a geeky theme, including an epic Star  Wars themed present with Love and Madness bracelet. Some how several of the ladies also know about my love of baby panda.

Currently Listening To… Britpop Bangers Playlist (Time Out London)
When Jason and I first meet Britpop was at the height of its popularity, albums like Urban Hymns, OK Computer and Tellin’ Stories provided the soundtrack to our lives back then. One of our first dates to was to see The Bluetones in concert. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the release of these albums.

Currently Knitting… Pink Pussyhat.
I adored seeing the images of sea of pink hats at the Women’s March. I didn’t have time to knit a hat before the protest, but still want to be part of this amazing project. So I have just started knitting a pink hat.

Currently Reading… Batgirl: Silent Running


This year, I set myself a Goodread Challenge to read 24 books. Their challenges include Graphic Novels so I am planning on reading at least one a month. This month I have re-read the first Cassandra Cain, Batgirl book.

Currently Watching… House of Cards

I think everyone has that one TV programme they have yet to watch. The programme all your friends have watched but for some reason you missed watching. For me it was House of Cards. With all the events happening in U.S. politics this month it seemed like the right time to start watching this award-winning series.

Currently Listeining to… Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording)
I managed to get tickets for one of the West End performances for Hamilton, since then I have had the soundtrack on a loop at home.
Currently Loving… Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Last week, they released the official title of Star Wars Episode 8. Since then I have chatted to friends and speculating about what the title means. Who is the Last Jedi? As Jedi is also the plural is there more than one last Jedi? Does this mean we will get a major death? Is Leia a Jedi? So many questions we will have to wait until December to get our answers.

Currently Reading… Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel by James Luceno
As we are just days away from the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. So I am getting into the “rebellious” spirit. We have brought our tickets for a midnight screening and I have bought merchandise and am reading the prequel book.

Currently Watching… Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
During November, I have loved watching Westworld. But the month was devoted to the return of Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I originally took Friday off, for Black Friday shopping but instead opted to spend the day in “Stars Hallow.”

Currently Listening… Cashmere by the Swet Shop Boys
I have loved this album for a few months, but seeing it performed live in November has increased my love for it. I am hoping for more material from Swet Shop Boys next year.

Currently Loving… Hamilton Mixtape
As I mentioned in my post about Joy, this month I have been loving the pre-released tracks from the Hamilton Mixtape, I can’t wait for the release of the whole album this weekend.

Currently Feeling… Christmassy
Last weekend, was the “Tree Decorating Party” for our extended family. An annual tradition when we all gather at my in-laws house and decorate their tree, eat, drink and relax before the craziness of December. It marks the start of the festive season for us.

Currently… October Edition

Currently Feeling… Adventurous
Over the last few weeks Jason has had to work overseas. We are not used to spending time apart, so I took the opportunity to travel a lot this month. As a result I spend the beginning of October in Gibraltar visiting him for the weekend, and a fortnight in the middle of the month in Manila.


Currently Reading… Batman: No Man’s Land
I have toyed with writing a series of blog posts about Batgirl recently so have done so research – e.g. re-reading some old comics and trade paperbacks.

Currently Watching… Luke Cage


Currently Listening to… San Junipero Playlist
If you have seen the Black Mirror episode San Junipero, you will understand why I have become obsessed with the soundtrack. For days after watching the episode I couldn’t get the song “Heaven is a place on Earth” out of my head.

Currently Eating… Birthday Cake and Halloween Candy!
It was my birthday at the end of October on Halloween, so it’s the ideal time to pig out on sweet stuff!

Currently Feeling… Lonely! Jason is working abroad for the next few weeks and I am not used to him being away from home. It does mean I got to spend the weekend in Gibraltar – hence why this post was late.

Currently Loving…  This month I seems to be a little obsessed with Riz Ahmed, we have loved his TV programme, I’m reading his book and we even re-watched Four Lions. Let’s not forget he is also going to be in Rogue One. He really is the breakout star of this year.

Currently Reading… The Good Immigrant edited Nikesh Shukla. This book is a collection of short stories by immigrants talking about their experiencing living in Great Britain. You can read an extract of Riz Ahmed’s story here.

Currently Reading… I am still re-reading the Harry Potter books. I paused from the original series briefly this weekend to read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.


Currently Watching… 
I have re-discovered my love of the Gilmore Girls. When Netflix began streaming the show at the start of the month I immediately started to binge watch it. It had been a few years since I watched this programme and it was lovely to re-visit Star Hallow and my old friends The Gilmore’s.
