Sharing My Favourite Quotes On International Literacy Day 2017

As you know I’m a huge book, stationery and writing fan, and when I was invited to take on an International Literacy Day challenge I got a little excited, ok well very excited!

The aim of International Literacy Day is to highlight the importance of literacy to individuals, communities and societies and it’s celebrated all round the world. This year’s theme is ‘Literacy in a digital World’.

Did you know that there are 775 million adults that lack minimum literacy skills? One in five adults are still not literate and two-thirds of them are women.

The Ultimate Guide to Surviving a Long Car Journey

We are making the trip up to Derbyshire in October and I want to share with you some tips on surviving a long car and also how to stay safe.

Eventually, you might be tempted to start your own blog and to see what the world of blogging has to offer. But before you do, let’s talk through some of the things no one tells you when you start blogging.
