Waffle House, Norwich

The Waffle House, 39 St Giles Street, Norwich, NR2 1JN

The Waffle House is intimate, understated, and blends into the street. You could be forgiven for walking past and completely missing it (I've done that several times even when that's where I'm actually meant to be going...) One thing that might stand out to you, though, is the queue of people that is almost always spilling out of the door.

This blog post might change your life.

What does 'Academic' Really Mean? | Online Course Recommendations

Would you say you're academic? I didn't think I was until recently. When I was a kid, I didn't enjoy school for a number of reasons: I was bullied, the teachers were abusive, and education-wise it was certainly under-performing. When I left that school to become home educated for the next few years, I enjoyed the projects we did and the places we saw, but I didn't seem particularly academically driven (not that that is necessarily needed in home education, but maybe that's a blog post for another time.)

Climbing the O2 Arena!

I'm adventurous but only a little. I like to leave my comfort zone sometimes but not too much. New experiences make me nervous even if I end up enjoying them. So when I was asked if I wanted to climb the O2 last summer... I didn't particularly, but I made the leap anyway.

My main worries were that I wouldn't be able to do it, or that I wouldn't be good enough, or that I'd lag behind everyone else, or make a tit of myself in some way. I'm petite, not very strong, I have anxiety, and I have issues with my knees, so climbing the O2 which is 52 metres high? Um...

Ask Italian

I am a huge fan of Italian food, and I imagine that when I finally get to go to actual Italy I'll put on about 3 stone. For now though, while I'm stuck in the UK, my favourite Italian restaurant is most definitely Ask Italian.

I've been to Ask Italian a countless number of times, and the food has always been impeccable. My first visit was actually in Birmingham, when I met up with my friend Charli before going to see Lorde. We couldn't decide which delicious-sounding dessert to have, so we ordered a couple and split them both. That's the way to go, people, I'm telling you.

How I Completely Re-branded My Blog

When I realised I was absolutely, 100%, no-going-back certain that I wanted to give my blog an overhaul, I knew it would be a massive job. The longer you blog, the more of a trail you have, and the more there is to change: from fairly easy things like the design and the URL, to the little things like changing your email address, your social media accounts, re-formatting everything, and much more.

Transforming The Mile Long Bookshelf to what we have today took me a couple of weeks. I had to...
